What to bring to the Big "V".

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
It's only a few weeks away! smile.gif

I can't tell you guys how much I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.
Here are a few things you'll need to have for fishing the Big "V".

Walleyes;
There should be a very good jig bite going on in early June. My favorite colors are orange/white, pink/white,
green/white, gold and firetiger.

Smallmouth;
Cranks, soft plastics, inline spiners
and jigs will all catch fish. You may
find fish in all phases of the spawn, so be prepaired to make a change in your presentation, to fit their mood.

Pike;
Great time to pound some decent pike.
Look for new emergent vegetation and
work the channels and points adjacent to their spawning areas.
Husky jerks, spinnerbaits, spoons and
soft plastics will get alot of action
and you have a shot at a real gator.

Muskies;
Bucktails, minnow style cranks, small
jerkbaits and spinnerbaits will get
the most attention in early spring.
Of course don't be affraid to throw a
10" jake now and then. smile.gif

If any of you can bring a little fire
wood along, please do, I think we'll
be spending alot of time telling lies
around the fire pit! smile.gif

I won't be competing in the fishing this time, but I will be there to compete in the talk Olympics! grin.gif

If I can help in any way let me know -- I will have my Cell Phone and Radio so I can help with the witnessing of large fish to be released. I should be up there late on Friday night, and I will swing by Guideman's place on Saturday morning. cool.gif

Looking forward to meeting everyone - and learning more about the Big V.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
    • That's the way most falls go. I was able to get out and put a gobbler down this fall. Went out just for a bird since I knew where they had been going in the morning. Got to the woods just after fly down and worked my way to the area and heard them talking a bit. Gave out a few yelps and had them running to me.
      Most years I never get a shot only have taken a handful in the fall. I was in a woods that I was not worried about ruining for deer.
    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
