Angel Eye pink & white, Hammered gold. Custom Jigs & Spins Demon Jig pink & white, gold. also caught a lot on the pink and Marmarooska Jig size #10 my friend caught everything on a Custom Jigs Slender spoon gold in color (you can find it in the Walleye Kit). Plain hook did well on a dead stick also. Good luck this was the first part of the week we used them.

You can catch'em on almost anything when they're going. Start with a gold or a glow pink & white jigging spoon 1/8 or 1/4 oz. (Go Devil, Angel Eye, Buckshot, Pimple, etc...). Put a horizontal 1/8 oz. jig under a slip bobber for your other rod (I like glow colors). If you see fish on the flasher but they're not biting keep switching colors or spoons until they do. If they still don't bite start downsizing your spoon and/or try using a spoon with a dropper hook. Use a glow hook instead of a jig on your bobber rod too. If they still aren't biting you can keep trying or BREAK OPEN THE BEER BAY-BEE, cuz it's gonna be a long day.

Same as above...I've also drawn some agressive strikes using a gold chubby darter..when they were hitting lightly on other baits.

The million dollar question has a million dollar answer. Buy a million dollars worth of jigs, and something is bound to work. Just kidding ya. If I were limited to a handful of choices for LOW, I would go with:

1-Gold Buckshot Rattle Spoon

2-Gold Angel Eye

3-Pink/white Jig-o-bit

4-Red Go Devil

5-Green/white JR with hammered gold back.

If you can't catch fish with that inventory, they aren't biting, or you ain't fishing. Good luck. Ooops, I forgot. I would get mostly mid-size jigs/spoons, a few smallish ones, and one or two big ones.

Well you can get Angel Eyes and Go Devils off of this site. They are usually in most bait/tackle shops. Northland tackle is everywhere. You must not be too far from Cabelas. They'd have some stuff too.

Just a tourist trying to get tips, I will be in a shack from sportsmans, but most guides don't say to much. anyone have suggestions on how far off the bottom do you ya fish,what type of jigs work better Horizontal or vertical and how much do swivel snaps actually hurt the lure presentation?

i was up there today,and they wre real picky my slowest day in years,I did have some luck on a rapala jig with a minnow head my green,orange and my brown/silver got me a couple.last week orange buckshot was hot and slow today.Only way i got a bite today was when i pulled up about a foot and jigged.A good selection of hooks is nice to have because you never know from day to day.99% of the time i have got fish on a gold jig with a shiner.Good luck fishing remember a bad day fishing is still better than a good day working

We were there last week and catching them 6 inches off the bottom and they were biting real lite most of the time. Read through the post and you will get a good idea of what everyone has been using at LOW. I use a small Duro-Lock snap just so I can change lures quickly and also you will get more action on a snap than tieing directly to the lure. Ended up going to a small presentation because of the lite bite. Pink&white/Gold worked the best for me. Enjoy

For me I get my most of my stuff off the internet because then you can get what you want and usually it is better priced too.

all my stuff is from JR's I get from here www.jrstackle.com

all my angel eyes come from tackle city www.tacklecity.com

Chubby darters I find at Fleet or Scheels or Cabela's or else I get them direct from Salmo but they are more expensive this way but you get the colors and size you are looking for.

This past weekend I had success on some lures I've never used with success. One was after reading a post on here about the pink/glow white AE. That worked well. Another was an orange/glow white jig. I'm going to buy some more, but I think it might be called a jig-o-bit or something. Whatever it was, it filled the bucket.

Orange rapala number 5 never fails. I have never used a different hook. Having a vexlar helps and just keep a steady jig. Caught a 27" this past weekend on it

Until proven otherwise, I always have a gold jig (fireball or teardrop) with a minnow (lightly throught the dorsal area)--fatheads or shiners and an ice buster bobber deadsticked. This past Friday it caught easily 40 fish. I start at 6" off of the bottom and move up 3" after 5 minutes and then 3" more a bit later. If nothing I go back down to 3" off of the bottom and start over. Then red or green glow jigs with blue glow jigs next in line. One thing I always monitor is the activeness of the minnow--if it isn't bouncing the ice buster bobber or at least moving around the hole it is replaced quickly.

Other rod depends on vex marks for depth, but jigs or Angel Eye Jr's. Also might be a buckshot rattle or a chubby darter. This past weekend my jigging rod was strictly a gold, teardrop jig with a fathead and it caught all of the fish on Saturday. I actually never caught a fish this past weekend on the chubby darter but my housemates seemed to catch more fish when I was working it--maybe it was drawing their attention, but it was too much action for them to hit it.

If you have the electronics, watch the responses to your jigging and adjust accordingly. We had two very different patterns between Friday and Saturday and our Saturday results would have been much poorer if we had stuck to the Friday deadstick better pattern only.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.

      Congratulations!.  I am sure it's a bittersweet time for you.  All the best!
