Sometimes just a simple plain jig and minnow is the best way to go for me.

Plain hook, whole minnow and splitshot on the deadstick. The dropper buckshot works with a whole minnow as well.

Buckshots, Scenic Tackle Go Devils and Angel eyes and JB rattin Varmits.

I like the rattling ones as it adds to the effect with a little rattle to attract eyes.

I have yet to try the Lindy flyers but I will be soon as they look like the ticket.

What Harvey said for jigging spoons, but add in the Swedish Pimple as well.

Mine would be either a Scenic Tackle Angeleye ,Northland forage minnow in perch or the Kastmaster in the perch pattern.My reason for picking them is that they simple work at attracting and catching walleyes. There are some lures out there that will attract but unless the fish are really active you can't seem to get them to commit.

I will have to take a look at those Lindy Flyers for both walleyes and lakers.

I do believe that those flyer could be a good jig for those lakers.

Buckshot. I think I go with this becuase of my confindence in it. I am pretty sure there are plenty of jigs that work, but I KNOW I can catch them with an orange Buckshot!

Northland "WHISTLER JIG" and "THUMPER JIG".. minnow head, or whole minnow.. Lindy "FLYER".. when down sized on these lures mentioned, they also work well for me on crappie,perch,even fat rock bass..

Jb Rattling Varmints were the cats meow for me last year. Second was the buckshot's, but that wasn't really a comparison either.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
