laker outfit.

5 posts in this topic

I need to pick up some stuff for lakers. the problem is I forgot just about every thing that was told to me at the fish lake.

mostly, what length rod- i assume longer for outside, short for inside?

lures- size, type, color?

line- 12 lb mono- 15-30 lb power pro?

flouro leaders? I have heard yes and no.

how much line do I need on my tip ups?

thanks for the help. Instead of posting this in the B-side bash forum i figured Id make a new thread to keep things more organized.

There is a string from last year thats tells you in detail, everything you want to know. Tried to do a search just now, but the search isn't working tonight. Try searching in the morning and you will find everything you need to know.

The forum is in the middle of being upgraded and some functions are temporarily out of order. The search feature is one of them. I stuck the Laker Gear and Tactics thread on top.

Thanks Tom.

I've made a lot of my rods so it was hard to give a definite description as to the action and weight on a laker rod

Being in deeper water that creates line drag and heavier lures, I don't want any mush from the rod on my lifts. I'm very picky that way. I also want a rod that'll load up nicely along with sensitivity.

I picked up a Jason Mitchell 36" Makinaw medium heavy in spiral wrap this fall. I'll be using a C3 or a Penn 920 levelwind on that rod. They do offer that rod in a spinning series as well. Of coarse you won't need the spiral wrap then. I think this rod will do what I want, can't wait to break it in.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
