spinners

8 posts in this topic

hey guys I have a question for whoever knows the answer. I was fishing up in canada the the guys we were fishing with were using spinners with a steel line instead of mono. Is that something that I can buy like that or is it something that I would have to make thanks guys

I have a few of those. You can buy them, if you are fishing mainly for walleye and are trying to prevent the occasional break due to a snot rocket I'd stick with the regular ones and keep checking for nicks in the line. However if you are targeting the gators I think its a good idea to use the steel leaders. I think I picked mine up at cabelas. If I were to get some new ones now I would just make my own out of Spider Wire or Power Pro.

where we go in canda all there is is northrens and walleye so its a 50/50 chance of what you have on your line. I lost to many fish last year. I looked on the cabelas website but couldn't seem to find them. I have checked the local stores where I live and they don't stock them. I guess I will have to run down to cabelas one of these days

I'll check my tackle box, you can have the ones I have. I might have a couple. I am not 100% that I got them at cabelas it could have been fleet farm I spend lots of money there to....

I think I know exactly what you're talking about - a bunch of guys I know who fish Canada use them all the time. The ones they use are called, I believe, a Spin-O. They would be very easy to make if you can't find them.

Cabelas make some that are made with spider wire.

They are six footers if memory is right and I beleive 6 bucks for three.

If looking to make your own, there's a few new "tieable" wire products out there now....names of which slip my mind at the moment. I bought some that's ultra-thin, and in 13lb test. This seems like a good option if you're also trying to fool eyes and using it with spinner rigs.

Tyger wire or something...the tie-able steel wire.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
