glass jigs on LOW?

Recommended Posts

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.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
