Kim City - Dec 5 - Damiki rig deep bite

I fished this morning for a while and had the best luck on a Damiki rig. I use a VMC 3/8 neon moon eye jig with a Zoom 'The Fluke' and cut off about an inch to match it up with the jig head. I would drop the bait to the fish and just lightly shake to entice a bite. It really helps if at least 3 fish are looking at your bait. I tried the D rig about 10 days ago and they would just slap it. The 4" yama grub is working fairly decent, followed by the ice jig. They are ignoring the spoon way to much. Caught several K's and a nice walleye on the rig. Had about 10 keepers, WT 53, and fished in 45 to 65 FOW most of the time. The graph picture shows a weird color under the fish, not sure what the deal is with that.

So I've been out for an hour or so both in the early morning and late afternoon (just before sunset) the last two days.  Caught fish both both morning and afternoon but the afternoon seems to be better for me both for fishing and for my body (kinda cold at 7 am) - best time has been at 4 pm.  WT from the morning to the afternoon - 50 to 53 deg.  Best bait has been a tiny fluke in blue pearl with some silver speck in it on a 3/8 oz white jig head (got this from Dock-in-it ) but i had these tiny flukes and didn't need to cut them.  Had to move the bait horizontally back and forth across the front of the boat.  Bite was so light I think I could tell on the graph  better than feel.  Bite often started at the bottom (60 fow) and once the first one bit then the next bites came at 20 - 30 fow.  Fish the creeks around the dam - was definitely not interested in a long boat ride in the morning.  I only saw two other boats in the two days - that's nice.

Bobby, I tried the fishing the lil george vertically a few times and I could not trigger a bite. The attached graph picture is one of the times I tried the technique.

The ice jig is the best bait for me. I see the fish(s) and drop to them and then try three approaches on the same fish until hopefully one bites. Shake, twitch up/down a few inches, then hop the jig up about 5 ft and land the bait back in front of them....then repeat the process. The 5ft hop will get their attention.

If you see loons up to several hundred yards from the bait your fishing around, then you are probably in a decent area. The loons bug the shad, then swim off and look for other opportunities ( but they stay in the general area).

Dock-In-It,

Yes, I will start my looking if I see the loons.

Lately, I will start looking at the intersection of two creeks, right in the gut.   A week ago it seemed better closer to the bank at the bottom of the drop off.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Bobby
