IGL Advice.

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
