IGL Advice.

6 posts in this topic

I am heading back to the IGL for a long weekend. I have not been there for quite some time, and the way it looks I think my buddy and I will focus on bass and maybe some panfish. Any advice on catching bass this time of year? Presentations and Locations to start off with? We will be staying on Lower Gar, so we will have easy access to all parts of the lake?

Advice for Smallies or Largemouth is greatly appreciated.

Also what might be some good spots to get my four year old daughter some sunfish and bluegills?

Thanks

Docks for green carp rock reefs and deep weedlines for smallies. Cant help with the gills I only target those in the winter and only when forced. Please CPR any muskies caught. We have been getting a few largies casting for muskies over the weeds to. Gull, Ft Dodge ect for smallmouth.

I'm not a bass guy, the ones I do catch are on baits I'm sure you don't have. Any of the points on West will or should hold smallies, I have heard theres a dock bite for Largemouth. Sorry I can't help with baits and presentations, bass just arent my thing.

How has the Musky bite been going? I have the equipment for that to, but normally use it on various lakes in Minnesota. If they are chomping I may give that a try as well.

    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
