Best Over All Jig????

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have found that on Upper Red Lake as in most crappie lakes i fish that the green Demon jigs work the best.I know on the days when the bite is so intense that you could probably throw a hotdog down the hole and land a ton of silverbacks it doesn't really matter but when those slow days come around the glow in the dark white and green Demon seem to work the best.This is a tip for any new comers to the URL fishing mecca.Any other jig favorites please reply.

RED or Green [ Frostee ] works great for me.

Orange or pink glow perch hoggers I've always liked. Maynards has some nice simple red glow teardrops that work well too. Extra wt. to get down in a hurry isn't a big deal at URL because of shallow depth.
Most important is keep your lines in order so if the bite gets hot you're not untangling tackle instead of fishing. I need to reread that last sentence myself!

I have been trying some new things up there and have found that the best jig for me has been a genz worm. I have repainted them with orange neon glow paint that glows red.

It's hard to beat a green/glow demon! When I am fishing deep water fast moving schools of crappies a demon just will not cut it. In this situation a heavy jig is a must so you can get it to the fish as fast as possible, if you don't have a heavy jig you can always use a demon with a split shot, but the problem here is tangling your line and missing an opportunity.

Kelly Lake Crappie Killer....Now that Pete C. has come back to AK, those crappies in Kelly Lake can finally breath a breath of relief. Did you hear about his fishing violation???

one thing you might add to your arsenal, is removing the barbs on your jigs. no big secrets here, but i'll bet not to many do it. it has advantages besides the peta related arguments. it allows you to get your jig out of the roof of the fishes mouth faster, and down the hole much faster.how much time have you wasted trying to get a hook lodged in the roof of a crapies mouth out, baited up and back down the hole? i tried it tonight and it worked great, in fact alot of the fish got off by themselves on the ice. only lost two during the battle. not a bad average. just a thought---jigglestick----

A Tube Jig works great as does the infamous Gem n Eye.

When a bare hook without bait isn't working I just stick my head down the hole and grab em with my teeth. hee hee

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.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
