What's the hot lure this year on LOW?

Recommended Posts

I'm heading up for a week of fishing and would like to know what is working best. Gem-n-eye gold with pink glow eye, size etc...

I've seen alot of action on the gemini, but small glow green jigs and plain red hooks have also done well(some reports mention orange/bronze Chubby Darters). It depends on how active and/or aggressive the fish are, so far I've had better luck w/ small presentations; jiging them or retrieving them upwards sometimes 3-5 feet to get fish to bite. We fished Adrians this past weekend, very slow; the better fishing seemed to be deeper and towards the gap. I've heard reports from Zipple and what I can gather most did the same as I, pretty slow. FM's reports say that shallower (17ft) did well though, but I don't know what those dates were. Reports from Morris for the past weekend were similar to Adrians, slow to no fish. I'm heading back nxt Mon/Tues and hopefully the bite is better. Friends at the lake now say it has picked up some, 5 fish this morning if I remember correctly. Either way, good luck and hopefuly you get on some fish and LOW gets back to the way I remember it.

i was up at zipple this past weekend and we did great in 18ft of water and not so great in the shallow.the red plain hook worked well.but i mostly jig,i was using the red lingy rattle flyer that waoked for me.jigging is the key i think since the fish r not realy active at the momment.i did manage to catch a few on my dead stick tho.

I was on the phone with a buddy at Zippel every couple hours the other day and he told me light line, light bite, small lure, large hook. He also said it was perfect time for the plain red hook and sinker. 22ft of water west on bobber road to hooker street. YEAH, I said Hooker street. Two of them caught 24 fish throughout the day. Not bad for what I've been doing. BUT, his cousin was 100 yards away and didn't catch a fish all day!!

So, from what I've seen with my own eyes and what I've heard, I'm going to fish shallow in the portable and my girlfriend will stay and fish at the sleeper. One way or another we'll find a limit or two.

Best thing I can tell you is light tackle, light line, light rod, and electronics does the best.

Good luck! tongue.gif

The Swedish Pimple has always been my favorite for Walleyes, you cannot go wrong with it IMO. If I could pick one, thats it.

Talked to someone at Morris Point a couple hours ago and the word was DEEP. I'm not sure if they've moved out there yet, but......

eye dropper spoon. Hammered silver on back side kind of a hologram look on the front side, red treble. Use this and you will catch fish, maybe. It has worked for me now for the second year, never took it off last year. And like the posts above, single red hook and a split shot up about 3 inches.

Single best producing lure among our peeps (and myself) has been the red or green glow (white) Rattle Varmit.

When bite is light like it has been, smaller seems to be better.

Highs in the 30's forecast for the W/E. Should be good!

Red glow rattling varmit worked best for me last weekend. 1/8th ounce size. A green glow Gem-N-Eye under a bobber caught fish for me too.

chubby darter!!!! lol that's what everyone tells me.. I think its just like everyone tells you there biting on shiners... the reason they tell you that is so spend $6-$7 on a dozen.. I've had better luck walleye fishing anywhere on fatheads over any other minnow??

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!
    • jigginjim
      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
