lindy rigs

2 posts in this topic

when you buy the pre made lindy rigs that have 14 lbs test on it,do you change the line on it or keep it the same? I've only changed it once on Mille Lacs and they bit right through it.

I make my own lindy's for my yearly trip up to Mille Lacs. I usually make them in 6, 7, 8, and 9 foot lengths with different color blades, beads, and hooks in a bunch of different combinations and variations ALL in 8lb vanish. I never use snells that long around south central mn. I spose you could get away with heavier lines in some places but I've never gotten bit off with 8 on Mille Lacs. Could easily get bit off my a pike even if your using 20 though. On Mille Lacs though, the past three years I've out fished all the other guys in the party... don't know if it has something to do with line or not... Could be.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
