Report from the South Side (JR's)

10,000 Casts

Recommended Posts


Took the wife and a buddy and rented one of Chad Bensons Houses for 1 night and we were impressed with the house 8x20 and really nice, as well as his service, he was a great guy and put us on fish.

Fished 13.5 fow out of JR's Access on a little structure. Caught just under 50 walleyes. Only 4 were on Jigs, the rest were on rattle reels. Pretty consistant action with feeding windows at 4:30-6m and 9-10pm and 7-8am.

It was weired, we would mark fish, raise them up and then they would go hit a rattle reel. But we defenitly caught more fish while we were jigging.

Best Jigs were a glow red buckshot rattle spoon and a glow yellow/glow red demon with the single hook. Both tipped with a minnow head. It didn't matter what color the hooks on the rattle reels were. We only used fatheads. My super secret never fail Demon didn't work. Tryed the bigger Castmasters like some here had suggested but no success.

The bite lasted all the way through the night with a window from 7am-8am. Then it slowed (fish or 2 an hour) until we headed for home at 2pm.

Very fun trip, no crappies or Walleyes but we did get some nice Jumbo perch mixed in.

Hope everyone had or will have as much fun as we did. Can't say enough good things about Chad's Service.

Chad is a great guy to give your business... Very good at what he does. He always knows where those crappie have gone. If your luckymaybe he'll take you on a daytime adventure. Other wise just through your gps in his truck for a while where he can't find it!

I agree with you guys. I went out of JR's for the first time last year. Everyone around there was very helpful. They put me on crappies when no one else said they could be caught. We caught over 50 crappies in one afternoon. They seem very confident in finding fish out there regardless of the conditions. I won't ever go anywhere else. I'm headed to JR's in couple weeks, can't wait to get into those crappies again.

Not to mention JR's roads were in great shape. Even when the big snowstorm hit the roads were plowed by sunrise. Keep up the good work guys. The good word will get around.
