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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
