Nice video Deitz and Ray!

Recommended Posts

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.

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...

Great video guys! I was wondering where that footage went smile Just had to wait patiently for the mystery footage I guess wink

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!!!

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
