minnow heads on the river

Recommended Posts

Good morning guys:

I had been using minnow heads on swedish pimples. The results have been mixed. Has anyone else been having better luck using other set-ups?

What are you targeting? If you are going for walleye and sauger, keep doing the minnow head thing. Sometimes you need to work it real slow and keep it tight to the bottom, often just holding it steady an inch or so off of the bottom will trigger a strike. Just kind of "pop" the lure up and down 6" to a foot a few times and let it settle and hover with a little quivering action. If you are after crappies, the same set up will work as well, but use your locator (if you have one) to determine the mood and depth of the fish. Also, maybe try a jigging rap instead of a pimple (both have their days out there) rigged with a head. Keep in mind that the fish out there seem to really be on or REALLY off!

Thanks for the reply JW. With the swedish pimple set-up i have been getting crappie and walleye. With a gold colored buckshot jigging spoon i have picked up some nice sauger in the 16.5" to 17.5" range. The bite has slowed down since the snow around Christmas however.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
