Up at 5:00 a.m. ready to perch fish IGL’s. We were only able fish 4 hrs because we had to get back to put leeches together & clean hotel rooms! We ended up having good luck on West. Okoboji is 13-16 fow near weedlines. Lots of lil ones that will be nice next summer. We fished close to the bottom but a lot of the time they came way up off the bottom school up aggressive. Obviously Kabele’s Wigglers paired with Tanya: Red/White Kabele’s Exclusive Pilke, Thane: R.C. Tube Jig, Mike : Gold Pilke & Silver Pilke vertical jigging. Tanya was using a 13 Fishing OMEN Black Rod as well as a Fenwick Aetos Rod. Thane was using a Smallmouth Elite Tech Rod. Stop in & see us for the info, bait, & our Kabele’s Exclusive Pilke (Jigger Minnow) Don’t scrimp on the wigglers either we went through 320 in 4 hrs for 3 of us! I have had this question many times – Yes, I bait my own hook & take my own fish off See ya this weekend!
