Speaker 1:
What's happening everyone? Devon from Debos_Fishing coming to you on the Monsterbass Channel. And today we've got some post frontal conditions. It should be a warm summer day, but we had a little bit of a cold front come through. High sky, no clouds, so we're going to be doing some off-shore fishing with a Ned rig. So the lake that we've got here, we've got a whole bunch of shallow grass kind of scummy stuff up here in the summer months, like this fish are going to push off, move out a little bit deeper and that's relative to where you live. So you might have lakes where deep to some people as 40 feet deep here, we're probably going to be fishing 10 to 15 feet. So a Ned rig like this is perfect. Usually I'll go with an eight ounce. When I'm fishing up shallow from the bank today, we're going to go a little bit heavier 316th or a quarter just because we've got some wind.

Speaker 1:
We want to get it down on those rocks and try to focus on keeping that bait there, drag it along those, drag it next to the rocks. Anything we can find any sort of structure offshore that might be holding those fish. That's what we're going to try to attack. Now, when you think of a Ned rig, you can throw something normal, like the regular TRD. I like the TRD crawz or these ticklers work great.

Speaker 1:
I've got some of these from rabbit bats that I haven't thrown. And I was excited when I saw these because it's like a Ned rig mixed with a hair jig. It's got hair on the end of it. So I think we're going to try these, a small presentation. If that doesn't work, we can always move up to something bigger, a larger shaky head, something like that is something that a lot of guys throw.

Speaker 1:
But up here in the north of Minnesota, I think we're going to try something small and see what we can find all. So I'm going to get rigged up. And for me, a normal Ned rig set up is like a sevenish foot, medium power, fast action rod with a spinning rod, it's going to be a little bit softer, but you still need that backbone because we're going to be fishing.

Speaker 1:
These EWG hooks. And these are an absolute game changer for bank fishing. Now out in the boat, you can get away with an open hook, but these EWG hooks notice it's not an exposed hook. So you've got to have a little bit of backbone in there to actually get that hook set in. So running that I've got a 2500 or a 3000 size reel is what I like. Just because you can bring in a little bit more line.

Speaker 1:
And then speaking of line, I've got 10 pound braid and I'm running an eight pound floor, carbon liter. So really 10 to 15 pound, six to 10 pound liter just depending on what you're fishing around. Remember it's a line is dictated by the cover I'm around not the actual fish all. So we got on the rock pile here. We're hoping to find a couple of these little boulders holding some fish.

Speaker 1:
And really when I'm dragging a Ned rig out here, you can see we've got the wind coming into us. Nice little pops. So I don't want to be doing anything too crazy with it. Short little pops, little hops. I've got a little bit of grass there, pull it through that. But again, that's the beauty of this EWG Ned rig is if you're fishing shallow from the bank out here with all this stuff, this weedless EWG comes through it really, really well.

Speaker 1:
That's what really shines for this type of rig getting in close to and around cover. So with it being later summer like this, we've got the fish that have moved off spawn's done. We should have some fish out here, but it's not like every single rock that we're going to go to is going to have fish. We find the spot. We might have a few on it and hopefully connect. So we're going to cover these few rocks here in front of us and keep kind of moving water.

Speaker 1:
See if we can find those spots, those offshore piles or dips humps, whatever it may be that are actually holding some fish and try to capitalize on as many of those as we can. So the interesting thing about this bait, we were fishing up just a little bit shallow or trying to find these fish, looking at some of these boulders and with this rapid baits Ned rig, it's pretty cool because the hair on the back and if you're ever in a spot where you're finding yourself more dead sticking kind of dragging, the Ned rig bait kind of hoping it here.

Speaker 1:
But the way that hair just flows is a really cool, different look that like I said, it's my first time fishing it. I think could be really good in a lot of situations where those fish are picky or especially if you're somebody who fishes shallower does Creek fishing with this type of stuff. And you're just letting that sit in the Creek with the current, making those little hairs, tickling stuff in the water.

Speaker 1:
I think this could be a pretty valuable tool for you. So a question I get asked a lot is how long do you stay in a spot before you move on? Well, right now, summer after spawn, these fish are still kind of moving in and out. This is a perfect example. I sat on this spot. I was able to see two or three cairns little rock piles out here in front of us.

Speaker 1:
And I've just been fan casting for maybe 20 minutes, nothing really going on. Should I move? Should I back off to try some of this other stuff, staying persistent? You can see paid off. I just caught that fish. And that was probably after about, I don't know what 25 minutes some people say they sit in a spot for 10 minutes.

Speaker 1:
If there's no fish there and move on. But when you've got three boulders here, little rock piles in 15 to 20 foot of water, that's kind of what we thought they should be at today. And it paid off persistence paid off. So guys to wrap it up, Minnesota was fun. If you've got anything like this, offshore, some rock piles, grass lines. There're some baits in here that I hadn't even got to try until today. The last couple days that worked absolutely perfect for hitting the edges of the grass, offshore wood offshore rock.

Speaker 1:
I guarantee you'll be able to find someone again, just stay persistent because once you get kind of spun out, you don't want to fish anymore. You're fishing too fast. Stay patient, stay persistent, but Hey, listen again. My name is Devon from Debos_fishing. Come to you on the Monsterbass channel. We're getting out of here. So, until next time.
