I have also tried the Slurpies brand, several different colors, methods, and different waters - still have yet to catch a fish with them. I primarily use Berkley Powerbaits with good success but thought i would give Slurpies a try. Like you said, they look like they would be effective - now the Slurpies are resting in the garage cabinet.

I am a big fan of the Lindy Munchies. I have caught a lot of fish on them, well over 1000 and they out-fished minnows up in Canada. I even have a 14 lbs walleye with them. With the "swim tails" you have to change the motion and keep them moving at all times, even if it is slowly on the bottom. I like the glow white with the light yellow tails on a Pink(shrimp) jig head. Chartruse colors work as always. I don't like the multi-colored grubs on the slurpies.

I never have used Slurpies yet. I figure this, some days you do not even catch a single fish on live minnows. So I would not give up on them just yet.

A close fishing buddy of mine has used them on the Miss. North and has had great success.

Good luck!

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
