shads or sticks

Recommended Posts

When trolling do you usually start out with stick baits (Huskys or rogues) or shads? Do you find one better early (Sept) and/or another better late (Oct/Nov)?

I have had better luck with the shads early on and as the water temp falls the stick baits pick up. I also found that as the water temp falls late in the fall the shad raps pick up most of the eaters. (But who wants an eater that time of year, it's time for the hogs wink.gif)

Andy, im off for the next week and will get out at least once. We had our little girl last tuesday and I made an agreement with the wife to hold off for a bit until night cranking picks up and hunting kicks in. I also have a pup im trying to get ready for all the birds blush.gif. We will get out!

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
