I'm gonna be making my first trip to LOW Feb 7-11. I'm pumped. We're gonna be making it out to the bait stores coming up here soon and I was wondering what colors are best. We'll probably get some gold buckshots but what else is a good choice. Thanks for any help.

1/8 oz. red glow rattlin' varmints and hammered gold angel eyes are two must haves.

Just a plain red hook. That all we have been using and have had great luck.

KDawg: Buckshot in the silver/bluish finish was good last week, plain red hook as stated above and pink/blue combinations were good as well. You can't go wrong with gold, and perch colored either. Glow demons in green/white, red/white and Lindy Frosties. I did pick up a couple on the JR Stop Sign as well, but it wasn't the hottest bait in the box this trip. Good luck hang on and post your results. Bill

Bill, where did you find the Stop Signs? Log Cabin? They didn't have them in yet when I was up in December.

I was at Log Cabin a week ago and he had Stop Signs right on the counter by the cash register.

I bought them at Log Cabin on 12/26. They were down to just a couple of the smaller size. Steve said he would be getting more in. I didn't get to stop in there last week. Bill

You can go to his web site and send him e-mail to save you some.

He did that for me in Dec. Good luck. I tryed them and could not get a bite at all. I will try again.

Thanks guys. Looking at my tackle box I realized I'm out of red hooks. That wouldn't've been good. Off to find some new ones. I'm slowy starting to get the right tackle. Thaks for all the advice.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
