Additional comments from this report: "Use your electronics to locate schools of fish and drop down to them. Use your electronics to stay above the school and keep bouncing the jig a foot or two off the bottom.You can tie the mono to the braid and use a snap swivel the attach the jig to your line or use a short piece of mono about 3 feet long to attach to the braid to the mono and then tie to the jig Good luck!"

Reported by
Ray Valley

Lake Saint Croix (MN, WI)

Ray Valley reported catching Walleye using the Vertical Jigging Deep (20'+) technique and St. Croix Eyecon Spinning Rods on Lake Saint Croix. Additional comments from this report: "The unseasonably warm weather this November has given anglers an extended open water season! Water temps are in the 40's meaning that its time for fish to put on some extra fat for winter! This time of year, I almost exclusively use jigging raps or glide baits. We had steady action in the AM catching some walleye but mostly nice-sized white bass in depths 22-24 ft on ledges. We searched for fish on the electronics and didn't waste time where we weren't marking fish. But marking a buttload of fish wasn't a guarantee either. You have no idea what those marks are half the time and I actually caught a rare Quillback that I thought was a school of walleye or white bass. After a slow afternoon, we switched up to trolling with lead core and flicker shad crank baits and picked up a few fish before switching back to jigging raps later in the afternoon. About 3pm, just about the time I had to get off the water, we started banging the fish (typical right?). We caught several 16-18in walleye one right after another making long casts with the jigging rap and a Hyper Rattle on a 15ft flat. Get out as often as you can before the party is over and we wait for ice!"

St. Croix Panfish Series Spinning Rods

$120.00 – $190.00

Reported by
Kail’s Fishing Reports

Kabetogama Lake (MN)

Kail’s Fishing Reports reported catching Crappie using the Vertical Jigging Deep (20'+) technique and St. Croix Panfish Series Spinning Rods on Kabetogama Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Fall is one of the best times for Crappie, use your electronics to locate a 30’ deep soft bottom basin. Drop to the bottom and reel up just above the fish and start working you jigging rap slowly. Watch how they react to your bait, you may want to tip the treble hook with a minnow head. If they don’t hit right away try playing keep away by raising your bait and trying to make them follow you. I like to use fireline with a short piece of mono with a swivel or tie the mono directly to the braid. Good Luck! "

Reported by
Catawba Tuna

Lake Erie

Catawba Tuna reported catching Yellow Perch using the Vertical Jigging Deep (20'+) technique and St. Croix Panfish Series Spinning Rods on Lake Erie. Additional comments from this report: "Perch bite was very light on that day. The sensitivity in the St. Croix PFS70LXF was key in detecting the bite or subtle change in feel of the bait. The perch were keying in on rock piles adjacent to the deepest break line before the mud basin. Used baits on a tandem hand tied double spreader type rig with a heavier main weight on the bottom of the rig being a 3/8 oz bell sinker."
