Bait coloring marker

5 posts in this topic

It's a magic marker type for adding color to live bait. I've seen this on tv a couple of times but can not remember what it's called. Anybody?

Chris I have a few different types of these markers. One is called SPIKE-IT and they are garlic scented. I use these mostly on plastics but I think it may work on live bait. Never tried it though. I know you can get dies for crawlers and minnows. Im sure you knew that though.

I got these ones at Gander.

Hope this helps ya. I think I also saw some in Cabelas catalog a while back. Or maybe it was Bass Pro Shops.

If I find others I will let ya know.

Chris,

Its called Spike-It.......

SPIKE-IT TM Scent markers quickly customize or change the color of any soft plastic lure to meet changing water conditions or fish patterns. Scent Markers offer the luxury of long-lasting scent and color change with the simplicity of a marker. Scent Markers make lure alterations easier than ever.

Available in Crawfish Scent, and Colors -- Chartreuse, Lime, Blue, Fire Red, Orange, Hot Pink, and Black.

Chris there is also a dip that you can get in a lot of colors. I cant remember what its called but I think Sportsmans Warehouse has them. Works great on plastics but you have to let it dry longer than the markers.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.

      I went to lake osakis and got my butt handed to me. I fished hard and cut holes for deep to shallow. I tried about everything in my bag of tricks to get them gills and crappies to bite. Nothing was working from 2mm jigs with a euro or micro plastic to jigging spoons. For fishing all day I caught one 8 inch bluegill. But I am looking at it as a learning experience and will help me be thankful for those slower days I have. I am going to hit a couple winter kill lakes this weekend. Best of luck to you all
