Navigator Uses Plastics and Scores.

Recommended Posts

Hi,
here are some pictures of Navigator and Randy. They were using CatchN Tackle's plastics and Jigs on the fish they caught.

I'll post the pics and let Navigator tell the story when he sees this.

Ahhhh...brings back memories of a 1,2,3 knock-out punch on the river. Compliments of Randy Halverson and Catch-n Tackle Company's Ring-N tube. What I mean is, Randy had some "honey holes" that were holding fish and this was my first experience using this product. As you can see, Randy's spots were loaded with fish and the new product worked wonderfully. I think the "bulky" size of the tubes helped fish locate and inhale the jig in that dingy water.

It was fun and I recommend using BIG plastics Now on the river. I think the fish agree. Nav

I was in a hurry this morning and didn't get a chance to talk about the areas we were fishing....don't worry Randy, the honey holes are safe. We were hitting spots with high current flow, whether it was a bar on an outside river bend or where another river joins the main channel. The fish were definitely looking to feed.

We caught a few walleyes trolling plugs in 6 to 8' of water along rip rap shorelines. The majority of the fish came from pitching plastics and these fish were in less than 4' of water.

A key to remember with river fishing....move alot until you put together a pattern for the day. I've had lot's and lot's of people in my boat over the years and that's the one thing I stress more than anything else...move often and experiment with presentations. Nav

Hey Nav,

Trolling Plugs? What's a plug? AKA Crank Bait? Just curious. Been at this fishing game for years and everyday I learn something new.

Gotta love that slang...ear plugs...ummm...nose plugs...yep you're right!! Crank baits. I use everything from long stick baits that wobble to tight running shad raps to my all-time fav....spoonplugs. AND when I'm on the river, I troll them things. Nav

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
