Wow!  Those are nice.  The 2nd one is so fat!  Well, I hope to join you on that front.  Best part is Mulhurst is only 30 minutes from my front door now....hmmm....maybe time to sneak out for an early morning soon.

Good luck out there.   May jumbos decorate your life shortly  ;D

Until this week I have never heard of a "wire worm" and now you are the second person to mention one for whitey fishin....wierd.

I have never fished for Whiteys in that shallow of water!!!  How deep does the lake get?  I looked it up on Google Maps and it isn't a very big lake.

we catch this size all day long at Lk. Diefenbaker in Saskatchewan...littera ly tubfulls if we wanted...no worms either. In the early summer they fight like no tomorrow. The biggest we have witnessed coming out is 11lbs. but did hear of a 13lb. My guess is (the above person) is using some sort of small  spinner or jighead...really not sure what the big secret is because what works in one place my not work in another. For instance..we use a trout pellet tied up in a ladies nylon stocking so as not to loose the pellet and have to reload everytime. The reason this pellet system works so well is the fact that the fish were born and raised on pellets from a nearby trout farm..this would definaltely work elsewhere. Just my two cents worth.

Please, please, please....you have to tell me what you were using.  I have been fishing off Mameo for the last few weeks....a lot on the camera (like 75 +), in about the same 7 feet of water, but do you think I can get ANY to bite.... totally frustrating.  I need help

I know what you mean, we had that same problem. We fish them with a single hook and spawn, if you had more that one egg on your hook they wouldn't even look at it, but still even if you had only one egg on they still bit so light and fast that you didn't have time to set the hook and you couldn't see the hit on the spring bobber


Tell me and I'll forget. Show me and I'll remember some of it. Involve me and I will have lifetime knowledge.

Just use a small single hook  on a minnow and let it lay on the bottom on the sand .
Whites are bottom feeders .

They also hit silver spoons jigged 15-20 feet of the bottom, and they hit them hard!
