Questions

If any of you had one piece on equipment that you could not do with out when fishing, what would it be?

I.E. (Electronics)

Or if you could have one piece of equipment that would greatly assist you in catching more fish what would that be?

Thanks confused.gif

Rods and tackle (throw bait in there)!

With nothing else, I can still shore fish with them.

I look at it this way. If my garage was on fire and I could run in and get a arm full of stuff form my fishing stuff, summer or winter stuff it would be my polls and tackle.

Wow, I am surprised that your little yellow hot rod car wouldn't be the first.

I am going to assume you do not mean rods/reels etc.

Given that--

Trolling Motor, without a doubt

Hooks,

Let it burn, I would take the insurance money anyday grin.gif.

Build another!

Exclude rod and reel's, sorry missed point of thread!

I agree, trolling motor. It has gotten me back to launch when I have had troubles.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
