Nice video Deitz and Ray!

24 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say nice work on the video. Talk about two guys having a great time trying a new lake and switching things up. I won't ask where, but how about when? When did you shoot the video? Slow presentations after the cold front? Slow enough for a turtle to grab the bait grinsmile

I would like to see some more videos like these with new tips and techniques!

As far as bass go, cold fronts in my experience arent a bad thing. Bass dont seem to be as picky as walleyes. Pick them snappers up by the tail!

once again another awesome show by the home boys. They are the best at what they do, as you can see, they make it out all the time not only to show people how to do it, but teach them as well.

Awesome stuff bud.

Thanks all for the kind words... The Video was shot 3 years ago I think.. We shot the video and then the footage was lost for a while and then as you can see re-found.. LOL

It was about this time of the year... And we were fishing a gravel bar that topped out in about 8 feet of water just outside a small bay. These fish as I said about 100 times too many were just coming out of post spawn and migrating back to the shallows... A lot of the show was edited out.. I would be willing to bet Ray and I caught close to 40 fish... It was a fun day.

Now that makes more sense.......For a while I thought this video was shot real recently and I was really confused. While I have been in Wisconsin, I still couldn't figure out where the 2 weeks of 80's were and the postspawn bass moving shallow good again.

By the way good video!

Deitz, or anyone else... I have a question about this. Do most fish spawn, then go out deeper to recoup, and then come back shallow to feed before they get into their summer patterns? I'm confused about when you say that the fish were coming out of the postspawn and about to head back into the shallows.

I know last year I experienced having postspawn fish coming back shallow to feed on the sunfish while they were spawning. I'm just wondering if this is a yearly thing. (postspawn fish coming back shallow after their done recouping)

Thanks for any insight

B0b- this is my opinion, with some fact to it as well.. After bass spawn.. Some stay shallow.. there always seem to be fish shallow. But some do pull back and recoup.. Some pull back and suspend in open water. Either way, these fish are very very hard to catch. I have seen fish on an underwater camera, and for thelife of me thrown the tackle box and them and they are like sleeping. Then, there seems to be a migration back to the shallows for a while before pulling back to summer patterns.

Great information.

I also have a Question for ya bud. When you are talking about post spawn, where is the best place to try and find these fish. Im guessing there going to be anywhere from the 5-15 FOW or am i wrong.

Here's a stupid question, but what video are you reffering to?

perfect deitz, thats just the answer I was looking for, it clears things up. Like I said before, I believe one of the reasons they come back shallow may be because of the sunfish spawn. Just my thoughts though.

I've also noticed that during the full moon in June there is usually one more wave of spawning fish as well as postspawn fish that come into the shallows. Last year it made for some good fishing. I'm hoping that will happen again this year in the next week or so with the full moon approaching.

True Post Spawn is very hard to figure out. I for one have not come close to figuring it out. Many fish I think pull tight into weeds and rest, some I think follow long points out and suspend over deep water, some pull back to the first weed edge and sit. I do know I have found fish on camera like I said that are true post spawners and I for the life of me cant catch them. Especially the suspended fish.

Now when they are coming out of post spawn and heading back to the shallows, I do best on points, access to deep water is important, but the fish could be shallow. In this video Ray and I were targeting a point with some rock on it, somewhere in the 8-12 foot of water...

And those were merely the highlights that day. I wish we could show the other 2.5 hours of video. It was just constant fish (or, maybe that's just the way I remember it). I think I made it the entire 3 hours without even blurting out a profanity on camera. That in itself is worthy of dispay. grin

You guys are the best in the biz. Like Deitz has told me in the past Ray is one of the best if not "thee" best jig worm fisherman in the state. So Ray, how could you forget about the footage with that signed dollar sitting in a frame on your wall? Opps, did I let that slip? grin

I let Deitz off with a tie that day. The "best" jigworm fisherman I am NOT. Just a big fan of them baits.

If any of you guys were fishing the east metro tournaments back in the late '80s and early '90s (Deaf Anglers, Mr G's, Mehsikomer's, etc.), you would probably remember the two guys that fished out of a Ranger tiller boat. Those guys just dominated the events on Forest, Big Marine, Chisago, and North-South Center. And, they were and still are two of the best jigworm fishermen I know. And, one of them, Jim Gelhaye, taught me just about everything I know about the why's, when's, and most importantly the where's. In 1992, when we (partner was Scott Peterson) finally won one of these events on Forest Lake fishing jigworms, Jim was the guy I thanked for being such a good mentor. I don't think he was terribly thrilled about it at the time, but several years later he let me know that he was happy that I had taken his experience and put it to good use.

There's a ton of guys that are better jigworm fishermen than I, but behind every good one I bet there is a good mentor. And, the same can be said for bass fishing, or any fishing, in general.

Ray is modest, he is one of the best jig worm angles I know.. He may not be the best shallow water bass dudes, but when summer hits, look out! Flat out can fish.

As Ray said, and I have had a few e-mails as well.. This vid was good, but could have been sooo much better, its just what footage do you keep what do you throw.. we had a ton of tackle tips, rigging tips, a lot more fish!!!!! Ray did kick my butt, but not as bad as the footage showed and I was in the back of the boat!

I kinda wish the turtle footage woudlnt have made it, but it did put up one heck of a fight!!!

Chuck

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
