You can have my Angel Eye minnow too and probably Jig O Bits too. I was not impressed by them. The old gold whistler out caught the Angel Eye 7 to 1. For $2.79 it should have slaughtered them!

I'll take the angel eyes. I still have room in my tackle box anyway. You can never have too many hooks.

I agree with wobbler. I have tried the Angel Eye in three different colors and two different sizes on the last three trips to the L.O.W. without any sucess. i was catching both saugers and walleyes on a varity of other jigging spoons.Maybe i was doing something wrong?

I need to apologize to Wobbler if I sounded
like a snot. The gold Whistler is very good
and has been for many years.

If any of you have tried an Angel Eye without lots of sucess I would suggest you
keep it in your tackle box for another day.

It all comes down to confidence in what you
are using and what your personal "go to"
baits and jigs are.

The first time I put an Angel Eye down the
hole (it was last year) I had a good Walleye
on within minutes. From that time, until two
weeks ago, I was never beat on numbers of fish either Walleyes or Crappies in over 30
trips. Finally a Northland Buckshot Rattle
Spoon beat me on Lake of the Woods. That
day things shut down for me at 2pm and I
couldnt catch my a** with both hands.

No lure or jig or bait will catch fish every
time. But for me the combination of the
Angel Eye Minnow and my Vexilar kept me
fishing every fish that swam near me. concentrating on only one line was also a
big help.

Now I have to dig out my gold Whistler Jigs
and try them the next time on Lake of the

Thanks for your input Wobbler and RockRoll

I can still hear the song in the morning. "PRETTY LITTLE ANGEL EYE" Singing that to your fishing partner will surely drive him nuts when you are outfishing him on that spoon. I've tried em without much success either. I guess everyone has the favorite spoons and jigs though.

I have to say the Angel Eye is not a magic bait.

when it shines, it really shines. I've caught so many types of fish with it, it's a hard one for me to pass up.

Remember, it has a differant action then other lures and you would do well to sight jig with it for a bit to make it tantalize those walleyes.

If they're looking at the spoon and leaving, tie a dropper onto it to get them to bite (You're obviously attracting them, a toned down dropper is just the ticket to get them in the mood for a snack).

Hey...I've even caught monster Carp out of Mille lacs with it. Now that was a shock as well as one heck of a fight.

I was making a joke Curt about giving mine up. I agree with the responses on here. I have had little success at LOW with the angel eye. On LOW the weekend I tried the angel eye my fishing buddies were 100 feet away and we kept on singing that song. I know everyone on 16 that day heard us. I totally agree that certain lures on certain days will work. I have used it twice and had little success. I see lots of fish on the vex and was not getting any chasers. I put a buck shot or whistler on and wham they hit the bait hard. I am sorry Curt if you took offense to me ripping on them and I should not have done that. Maybe like Rockroll said maybe it is the operator! Everyone has their favorites. Mine used to be the pink and white wobber.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
