If you could only bring two luers?

9 posts in this topic

I am heading up over the week of the forth and I will be staying on the Canadian side of the lake so I can not bring and live bait. I am looking for good artificials, shad raps and floater have worked well in the past, buzz baits can be fun to. This year I am thinking of using some plastics may be senkos, but not sure of color or size. One of my issues is getting the bait down deep because the water temp is going to be up and I am sure I will mark a lot of fish at 30-40 feet.

When I was there for Memorial Day they were hitting on natural colored plugs that were diving about 12-14 feet over points.

I AM PARTIAL TO JIGS AND TWISTY TAILS; THEY CATCH DARN NEAR EVERYTHING. THE OTHER WOULD BE SOME SORT OF STICK BAIT IN THE 3 TO 4" SIZE.

JUST CURIOUS, WHY CANT YOU TAKE CRAWLERS PACKED IN BEDDING WITH YOU ACROSS THE BORDER?

I did call the Canadians again today and I was told you can bring worms, but that is it. Any one now if there is a resort or anything that I can reach from namakan that sells minnows or leeches.

Crawdad Shad Rap and a Crawdad Shad Rap. I call it the Lucky Luciano. For some reason the walleyes love that lure. It has outdone any lure I have used upthere. When ever we go fishing upthere I make sure I have 4 of them and I charge my friends $10 if they loose theirs and have to borrow one.

The Ontario "Sand Point Lodge" on Sand Point Lake sells a variety of minnows. It is located central Sand Point Lake at the entrance of Clearwater Bay. If you buy minnows there they give you a receipt that covers you having the live bait for the day. Any other information call SPL @ 218-290-6854.

You can get any lure you wish to about 100 feet down(depending on boat speed)with 2to3 ounces of weight and a three-way swivel.It's kind of bulky and heavy but it does catch deep eyes and it's effective for Lakers too.Hope this helps some.........good luck and don't fall in.c63 grin.gif

      Spent past 4 days (and nights till 2am) on Ottertail one wheelhouse and 4 portables. Bite was next to (0). 5 guys 4 day got 5 eye 14" to 17" and 6 perch 7 to 10". Friday -21 on the lake at 3pm. Pressure at 30.90. Did not move a lot but did some moving 30' to 9'. Saturday bit warmer day made it to 11 deg. Same result moved a lot humps, breaks valleys, 40' to 9'. Marked lots of fish in deeper water and some at 9 to 16'. Resort owner talked to half dozen other villages on west end, All having no success. Pressure never got below 30.28 but temps warmed to upper 20' on Sunday. Not a banner weekend but sometimes "that's fishing" Took a fall on slick icy parking lot week ago, found out today I have 3 fractured ribs. No wonder my right side hurt a bit.

      I've had issues with my Eskimo Z-51 reopening holes, getting caught at different parts along the hole ON occasion. Other times it ripped right though. So my answer pretty much sucks but from experience they aren't the best at opening holes.

      Very nice weather to be out chasing Walleyes/Saugers. Some extra special good news in this video wrap up
