glass jigs on LOW?

Recommended Posts

TrollnDrift

Hi guys,

We are heading up to LOW this weekend. The resort we are going with said the eyes are hitting glass jigs. I cant find any anywhere at my local stores or online. I have plenty of standard and glow jigs, should I worry about the mysterious glass and glass glow jigs or forget about them? Anyone know where to get some?

Thanks, Erik

I dont think they are a necessity but you should be able to find the jigs at any of the bait shops around LOW. If youre like me, you'll buy more than you need. They came out a couple years ago. I forget the company that makes them but they come in several colors that are inside the glass that makes up the head of the jig. They do work but im sure other jigs will do you just as good too.

The way the fish are biting now, it doesn't matter what kind of jig you are using. I have heard over a dozen different jigs that were the best. I have had some of the best fishing I have ever had and used just a plain old gold roundhead jig. I am not saying you shouldn't buy some because you can never have too much tackle but if you can't find them, it is not the end of the world.

Teir called the nucleus jig, they came out a lomg time ago an were a big hit based on their uniqueness, they were expensive, about 5-6 bucks apiece, didnt take long to dies out, you cn still find some at the local bait shops up there, but not all carry them. Dont know if they even still make them, the shops that still have them, might still be carrying old stock. Sounds like they want to gt rid of that stock. Get yourself a red lindy flyer, red glow rattle varmit, a pink charmer, an use a bobber set an your all good.

Thanks for the replies. I did find old posts on the nucleus jigs, I haven't seen anywhere that sells them locally. Ill keep an eye out for them when we get up there but don't want to spend an arm and leg on a few jigs. Ill look into a few of the mentioned jigs you suggested.

Thanks All! Erik

Also known as tiger eye jigs. I looked for them at mills ff in st cloud and the guy told me they ordered them from the supplier but never got their order.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
