Headed up on the 26th, was wondering what lures/presentations are catching fish. Any specific bait? bait size? ect.

Glow red is still producing well for me, the smaller sizes seem to trigger the bites during these cold snaps. I am also having good luck with the super small glow red buckshot or rattle spoons.

A pink/white glow seemed to be good also an orange plain hook worked very well for us. Good Luck

A Demon tipped with a minnow is all you need. Glow with a blood line or red dot always works for me.

Is everybody using crappie minnows or are the fatheads. I have been there before where the bigger the minnow the better, leave the crappie minnows in the bucket...

We didn't get any slabs, but I am pretty sure we are to shallow for them. We are sitting at about 11 feet targeting walleyes. Might move out later though to try and get some.

In 13 fow last night a buck shot worked well to rattle the fish in. It seemed when we stopped rattling the fish stopped. The buck shot didn't catch much, but it sure kept the fish comng in. Pnk and green were the colors that were working well.

rattle buck shots were working well for a group of us last weekend. It seemed that anything big on the end of your line brought the fish in and then it was a little more work to get them to bite. Chubby's, Jiggin Raps, and large jig spoons. Managed 6 slabs last saturday and know i remember why we fish red, WOW.

Red buckshots along with green or red glow jigs on a straight line also worked well for us!

Red Glow Rattling Varmints in 1/16oz. Move to 1/8oz for the eyes. Tough to beat a glow gami in a small size with a small crappie minnow as well for a stealth approach. Load it up with weight and use the biggest ice-bustr bobber they make. Speed is of the essence when trying to harass a school of URL crappies. Get them while they're under you, or you miss your window.

Tip ups seemed to be working really well for the walleye this weekend. Jigging was very weak. Large shiner or sucker minnow on a tip up 1 1/2 foot off bottom produced the most success. We fishied only in the afternoon, and the bite was very good at dusk off the South Shore.

I had my best luck on a glow/red gemini spoon and a glow red hook under a ice buster. Most came jigging but the bigger fish hit the bobber rod. Once it got cold we had to slow down and go smaller. 1st day they were pounding bigger glow pink buckshots but as it got colder we were down to glow ratfinkies and waxies.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?! 
    • leech~~
      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
