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

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
