February Jiggin'

Recommended Posts

Fishing has picked up slightly on Devils. A buddy and I fished Thursday evening to Sunday morning (2/5-2/8). Weather was consistently overcast and cold, Friday's wind made hole hopping less attractive. Walleye fishing has been best around 15' on hard bottom areas with a few perch in the mix. Perch generally have been best around 25' give or take a few feet with mud to scattered rock being key areas.

Walleyes preferred subtle jigging on darters and rattle spoons. A few fish came from set lines such as a dead stick and tip-up. Perch wanted smaller rattle spoons and rattle-less spoons. Sometimes our most effective way to catch perch was to leave your bait on the bottom and wait for a perch to pick it off.

I've been hearing more reports of perch being caught in mid-depth basins (20-30'), the sun has been a major impact on that bite. If we could get sunny and stable weather for a few days, perch fishing should improve.

Pike have been annoying aggressive. I donated my most productive buckshot spoon to one Saturday. Multiple pike were marked and seen on camera. One evening we had one stalk us for over an hour.... You can figure out how walleyes and perch reacted once they realized they were being watched. With that said, high water column jigging (5' under the ice) has been very productive along with tip-ups.

Here are a few shots from the weekend.

    • I think you need to look at the context the photo was shown.  Given this is a hunting/fishing related website I think users know and understand the context and it greatly reduces the impact of a photo like that heart/knife image.  Now post that same image on a site where the focus is something like womens fashion or something equally unrelated then I'd say it was shocking or inappropriate.  I think Google should look at the context when making such determinations but it doesn't seem their policy is flexible enough to do that.  I wonder if a similar photo shown on a cooking site that is talking about how to prepare heart for dinner would be looked at the same way.  
    • Heart with bloody knife was a little over the top, seems to me.   Perhaps trying for shock value?  Got it too.  
    • I thought this was a free country?  The heart shot pic is a little graphic but it is what it is.  A great, humane shot.  People shoot things to make them dead, then eat them.  It’s life.   Thought I’d add: We’re having backstrap for dinner tonight.  Looking forward to it.
    • Just so all of you are aware google has defined this post as a page with shocking content.My guess is a person or group reported you.   "Dear FishingMinnesota, This Google Policy Report gives you an overview of recent activity related to violations found on specific pages of your websites. As enforcement statuses may change over time, please refer to the "Page-level enforcements" section of the Google Policy Center for the current list of active violations."   This is one of the pages google sent me to with a violation date of 01/19/2020.   So obviously this content now reaches Google's limit of what is tolerable.   Your thoughts please?    
    • My dad has a catalog you can get Carolina reaper seeds. 7.50 for 10 seeds. 55% germination. I know the way I grow leggy peppers from seed it would cost me 50 bucks to get a couple good plants. Hopefully I can find some plants this spring.
    • Haven't fished Centerville this year.  We usually target the Northerns in 8-10 feet with shiners and tip-ups
    • I remember the very high index around the 96/97 winter.  Actually that was the first I ever heard of it.  Made sense though. We were riding the NSST north of Silver Bay and one of our wrong turns brought us to two mountains of roadkill deer carcasses. The roads were the only means of travel for them. That was the deepest snow I ever encountered sledding. At one overlook I stepped off the side of the packed trail and went over waist deep, needed to grab the sled to climb back out.. The 3 sided log shelter at this spot only had a gopher hole in the snow to get down in it!   Hope Feb isn't a repeat of last year..
    • i've been watching this for 4-5 years now, maybe longer. back when the DNR cut back even some northern minnesota zones not have anterless drawings.
