If it is calm out you can get away with an 1/8 ounce jig with 8 lb test in 30ft of water,if its windy go to a 1/4 ounce jig.My favourite Lac Suel colour is chartreuse with a blaze orange top.(KILLER COLOUR)...Good Luck!!

I tend to go heavier, like 3/8 oz. I can hold bottom easilyand can move faster looking for active fish, then step down in size once I find them.

No,the only time I use 1/4 ounce is when it's really windy and I don't even like using them then.If you can get a light jig to the bottom of deep water and still feel what's going on that's the way to go.Blaze orange with a black top is another good colour on Lac Suel.

Thumbs up

I have been fishing out of Fisherman's Cove Resort on Lac Seul right next to Onaway for 10 years now and go the same week you are going. We use 1/4 oz and 3/8 oz jigs with minnows with great success. Also use spinners with minnows/leeches. Color's that work well for us are: Chartreuse, pink, white, orange, purple, parrot. Klass holographic spinners in pink, orange, chartreuse, purple (you can buy these in Canada made in Winnipeg) work well too as well as Tommy Harris Spider Spinners. I Sent you a private message for more information.

4 1/2 weeks to go back to Lac Seul and can't wait!

weight of jig really depends on depth or water, wind/current speed, and line being used, mono, power pro, fire line, etc, all have different wind and water resistance.

Also, how aggressively are the fish biting?
