Fox line in, part of it anyway...

2 posts in this topic

Well I made it out today and got about 2 dozen sets in. just a few footholds and the rest were snares. I could only set one area out of 4 that I wanted to set because of heavy overflow. With the full moon we have super high tides so there is LOTS of water on the ice in many spots where I wanted to get into. If I could have taken the snowmobile all the way to the spots it would have been no sweat to waterskip, but there is a large cutbank on the edge of the overflow so this is a line i will have to walk to put in. No way was I going to walk through 3 feet of slushy river water when it is 10 below out. Hopefully it will subside quickly. Might get another dozen or two sets in tomorrow.

Feels great to be back out on the line again. I have also spent alot of time looking for sign of a wolf pack fairly close to where I live. They were spotted from the air the other day, but we could not find sign of them since we had a bunch of fresh snow. I will get down there again in a few days and search them out, OR i will get up in the air and find them.

Merry Christmas everyone, and may Santa deliver you full traps in the mornin.

Hey Fish, good to hear from you again. Good to have you back out trapping again. I'm going to have to get a fox line going after xmas too. I can't have you out doing me again. I wish you luck, keep us up to date.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
