Jamestown Reservoir

Recommended Posts

Does anybody fish the Jamestown Reservoir? I am thinking about giving it a try. I have talked to a few people that say the fishing there is great. How is the ice on there now?

I've fished Jamestown Res. in the past and it is a real good early morning and nite bite. Best place I've had luck is East of the Smokie's landing(you'll see all the houses across from the landing). the nite bite around a full moon is the best. set up in about 8-12 feet of water and the Crappies will come in suspended before the walleye's, it can be hard to get your line down to the bottom cause the crappies hit it hard. The Eye's are a little on the small size, but my buddy caught a 6.5 lbs last year. hope that helps!

Fished Jamestown Sat. eve. Talk about tight lipped S.O.B.'s. Fish just staring at your bait, move it slightly, and watch the fastest retreat you can imagine on the Vex. We caught 14 eyes between three of us, but if we would have been able to catch even half of the nice big fish we marked on our electronics, we would have caught 30 eyes and 30 crappies. Definetly going back around the full moon phase to see if that helps.

Me and a couple buddies fished the Res. all day Sat. 7am til 9pm. We came home with 5 eyes and 1 crappie, marked a ton of fish but not many takers. Marking fish on my Zercom all day, jigging off the bottom got lots of looks and a few takers, but overall it was real slow. caught 10-15 eye's total.

What is the deal with the fish in this reservoir? Fished from 3:00 to 8:00 on Monday night and caught NONE. ZERO. ZIP. Tons of nice fish on the Zercom and they WOULD NOT bite. I've never seen fish so spooky and negative. Anyone else having these same problems????

Try some Devils Lake tactics...Slow your jigging down, stopping it all together when you mark fish...don't jig at all, rather quiver the bait...bite off the minnows tail to slow them... try hooking the bait differntly to give a differnt struggle...use a minnow head on a dropper line below a jigging spoon...

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
