Has anyone had any luck with hotheads. This has been my jig of choice for the last couple years, and never had any complaints.

Thanks for the reply Jigglestick, I have only fished URL for the last couple years and have no complaints about driving 100 miles to enjoy the atmosphere. Have never had a chance to stop in at WW and enjoy the drinks with any of you guys, but hope to in the future, as will be down to put house out and fish. We store house at Hillmans--best people ever. Well enough for now.

I'm partial to Phelps cause Jack and Denny and Matt hung with this town after the walleyes collapsed. Sometimes they rented a house but didn't even bring their rods. smile.gif Tonight their "Glo tubes" or "Glo Hooks", (what ever they call it) in white kicked butt.

Buddah, what are Hillmans rates for storing a fish house over the summer??
Do you know if there are other resorts or places that store houses??

Kelly - Yes, we did hang with Waskish through the good and the bad. Some of the bad was pretty bad. Those fish houses can get kinda scary when you don't have a rod in one hand to slow you down from grabbing for the cans more often.We won't start on that subject again. I know my dad first started selling Shorty Hillman tackle about twenty-five years ago. I am not sure which you were using, but the Glow Tubes can be used with hooks,jigs, or whatever. The Glow Hooks come with Glow Tubes on them. They both work great.Jigglestick, I am glad to hear you are trying the Tick Jig. Hope to see you up there sometime.Possibly at WW for a cocktail.

Buddah:

I too use hotheads, and have enjoyed very good success with them as an anchor jig for crappie minnows. Is this how you use them, or do you actually jig with them? I have thought of doing so, with the horizontalaspect of the jig, but haven't gotten around to it yet...

PP ANGLER We store our house at Hillmans for 50 dollars for the summer. Very reasonable rate, I know Rogers stores also, but dont know the rate.

Stoneeyes317 I also use them as anchors for crappie minnows on one line and jig with the other, using angel eyes or small grub jigs of all different colors.

I am anticipating the bite picking up. Sounds like guys are getting limits while others are getting skunked. Surely worth the gamble in my eyes!

Do you know if you guys have a good supply of these jigs and glow hooks at S&W in Brainerd.

emtbucket - I don't believe S&W has them. I know that Koep's has the Glow Tubes that you can put on hooks.Tell Cliff at S&W to give me a call to get some in. If he is still around anyway. I haven't talked to him since last spring. You can get them many other places from Bemidji and up north. Thanks.

Another that we've been getting good reports back from has been the 1/8 Glow Devil (blue, red, pink & white and red & yellow), as well as the Fat Fry's tipped with a minnow.

I have been using the angeleyes (pink&white)its been doing pretty well.

Is the Angeleye the same as the AngeleyeJR. or is the Jr. a smaller lure????
Thanks and Good Luck

Yes there is a difference. The Angeleyes are pretty big... I'd say 2 1/2" long??? The JR's are roughly an inch shorter. My guesstimates could be way off.... just to lazy to go look right now.

The Angel Eye Jr's are smaller than the regular Angel Eyes (and yes, the pink and white as well as the red have been producing). Just looked on the rack on the wall and measured them, the Jr. is about 1 1/2"~they come 12 on a card (although we do sell them individually), the regular Angel Eyes are six on a card. The Glow Devils come either 1/4 or 1/8 oz.

tulikow, I use them all the time. I have 4 rods rigged right now and two of them have Demons. Put some Spikes, Waxies or eurolarve on them. In my opinion there the best jigs.

I agree with Kidd.....I only use Demon jigs when I go up there. Get the big ones...I get better hook-ups with them. I may catch a few fish on other jigs and spoons...but by far the Demon jigs is my favorite. Use a crappie minnow hooked through the back.

Drake,
I ordered some Angel Eye Jr's off the website (twice - one time by phone) and didn't see any sign on there of the full size Angel Eye, but I think I got the full size ones. Are those measurements including the hook? I couldn't figure out how you guys were catching crappies on such a big lure. I went back and they still just show two different cards of Jr's - all glow and a mixed card. Not a major problem cuz they make a nice walleye lure, but I would like to get the Jr's before I make the trek to Red.

salger65,

If there are 12 on the card then you got the Jr.'s, if there are only 6 then you got the full size. Yes, you do catch URL crappies on walleye jigs. The crappies are that big! It's like lipping a largemouth bass.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
