MuskyBug,

Do you still work at Northern Bait in Park Rapids?

If so, do you have big (8 inch and larger) creek chubs on hand? How about red worms?

Will be coming up for vacation in a month and wanted to know the bait situation.

Thanks for any help.

the creek chub question is tricky, the last run we got had some absolute monsters in it, however before that they were pretty small. it is hit or miss for the most part but if you need them and give me the dates you will be around i might be able to talk dave into traping some of his brood stock for you. and we don't carry the red worms, i believe delaneys still does and markets them under the "trout worm" label.

Dad and my brother will be coming up July 30, I will be up on August 4th.

Dad will be there until the end of August, I'll be there for two weeks.

If you could have 3 to 4 dozen creek large creek chubs by July 30, that would be great. 8 inches or larger, also any monsters.

We probably will need more later on depending on how fast we use them.

I'll try to stay in touch between now and then to see if you have any luck finding them.

Thanks a lot for your help!

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
