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.

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.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
