What to bring to the Big "V".

Recommended Posts

guideman

Hi all,
It's only a few weeks away! smile.gif

I can't tell you guys how much I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.
Here are a few things you'll need to have for fishing the Big "V".

Walleyes;
There should be a very good jig bite going on in early June. My favorite colors are orange/white, pink/white,
green/white, gold and firetiger.

Smallmouth;
Cranks, soft plastics, inline spiners
and jigs will all catch fish. You may
find fish in all phases of the spawn, so be prepaired to make a change in your presentation, to fit their mood.

Pike;
Great time to pound some decent pike.
Look for new emergent vegetation and
work the channels and points adjacent to their spawning areas.
Husky jerks, spinnerbaits, spoons and
soft plastics will get alot of action
and you have a shot at a real gator.

Muskies;
Bucktails, minnow style cranks, small
jerkbaits and spinnerbaits will get
the most attention in early spring.
Of course don't be affraid to throw a
10" jake now and then. smile.gif

If any of you can bring a little fire
wood along, please do, I think we'll
be spending alot of time telling lies
around the fire pit! smile.gif

I won't be competing in the fishing this time, but I will be there to compete in the BS Olympics! grin.gif

If I can help in any way let me know -- I will have my Cell Phone and Radio so I can help with the witnessing of large fish to be released. I should be up there late on Friday night, and I will swing by Guideman's place on Saturday morning. cool.gif

Looking forward to meeting everyone - and learning more about the Big V.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find
