URL Presentations

Walleye #1

Myself and three buddies are heading up to URL over the weekend of the 9th to put in some fishing for eyes, crappies, and pike. What are some of your favorite presentations or colors? I imagine glow red is a good start for the eyes and crappies. From the looks of previous posts, the deadstick presentation has been the ticket with the jigging spoons brining them in. We have never been there..so just looking to see if I need to update any of my tackle before we make the venture up North.

This might be a dumb question but what exactly do you mean by deadstick? Just a jig and crappie minnow sitting still? And then the other line has a bigger presentation and jigging it to attract?

Jig and minnow or more often a bare hook and minnow. Don't jig it, just let it sit there still. Attract them in with the jigging hook and when that spooks them away the minnow just hanging there not noving looks like and easy meal.

Curious if you use fatheads for all species too?

We tried both fatheads and crappie minnows last trip, but no success. With past experiences though, all we had to use was fatheads and that reeled in the crappies.

I too would be curious to know what baits are being used for walleye and crappie. In the past three years of Red Lake trips I have had only crappie minnows. I have done ok in the past but I am wondering if I need to get some small shiners or fatheads too.

Fished up there from thursday- sunday and the best presentation was a plain red hook just sitting under a bobber. I used a buckshot rattle spoon to attract them. I would mark them on my vex, and they would hit the dead stick every time. I maybe caught 2 fish jigging all weekend. 3 inches from the bottom and just wait. Fatheads, crappie minnows and sucker minnows were used.

We caught aprox. 100 walleyes,20 crappies, 2 northern and one perch.

Excellent in my book for the weather we had!

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
