Fishing Current/Jack's Fork

Postby mox » Sat Jul 06, 2013 6:52 am

Wife and I are invading the show me state sun-thurs this week. When we planned the trip to Eminence she wasn't pregnant with #2, but things changed and now she's tired, sick, etc. translation for those of you w/o kids: we won't be spending as much time on the river paddling, together. But, I've got clearance to fish as much as I desire. Any advice? Colors? Craws, bugs, cranks, grubs? Avid bass fisherman and also done my share of kayak fishing. Help a brother out!

I have "heard" crawfish or pumpkinseed wackys or curlytails have been successful. I don't have first hand knowledge, but will see a buddy later that actually goes over and fishes it himself.

10 4. Taking everything I've got. Planned on throwing some small jigs and shakeys to start with. Always used rooster tails on rivers around home. Thanks for the info!

Talked to him yesterday. He said small cranks in crawfish, and senkos in aforementioned colors.

Great thanks man. May have to pick up some pumpkinseed stuff. Mostly small jaws or anything else?

Little canoe rental right in emminece sells bait. We wore them out on Mustard tubes. He sold them out of bins. They outperformed every color bait 2 trips years apart. We done a 90 (6 days) mile trip and a 3 day trio. Good times

Wouldn't have gone hungry but didn't set records. Did catch my first pike though. Black grubs, brush hogs, and rapala shad rap. Locals said gitzit (sp?) was the way to go. Dark, Natural colors got me by. Beautiful rivers. Will definitely be back again.
