Favorite Lure/ Jig for the big Red

Recommended Posts

fishin58

I had some success with a red/white ring worm with a double tail. I had this rigged on about 3/8 ounce jig. I caught my biggest wally ever on this rig.

About 99% of the time I'm using 1) a small jig and plastic (with or without minnow), 2) a slip rig with a straight hook or a floating jig, or 3) a shallow running reef runner or a bomber long-A.

I would have to say either a creek chup with a plain hook or a sucker with a plain hook!!! The bigger the better but around 6 inches is always good!!!

By the way did Gander in Fargo here get any creek chubs????

Does anyone stick to one color over the next, my dad swears by a black mister twister in the river.

I haven't used a lot of creek chubs, becuase you never used to be able to get them here. However, I did used to use a lot of 5-8 inch suckers. Big walleyes will definitely take baits that size. I also used to fish with a guy who used to throw a 9 inch crank bait all the time- and he caught plenty of walleyes on it.

As far as color goes- I mix it up quite a bit. I throw a lot of white, yellow, and orange. But every color of the rainbow has been the hot ticket at one time or another. Experiment and see what works for you on any given day. Also, experiment with size of jig/lure/bait. Some days big is the ticket while other days small will produce big results.

Whistlers in pink or white with sumo Fatheads is my pick in the spring. Second choice would be white twisters on a 1/8 oz pink jig rigged with a sumo fathead minnow.

Come post spawn the bigger femails will go for larger baits pinned on a short leeder on the bottom. I have caught a few big girls post spawn on whole Goldeye heads while fishing early cats, they feed on easy meals at this time.

Post spawn recovery kicks in and cranks start to do well as do swimming plastics like swim shads. Love that THUMP of a chubby walleye on a swim shad.

Jigs and minnows rule most pre-spawn river bites on rivers, more or less.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
