Any lures better than others

4 posts in this topic

It seems the best luck or the most hit line in my fishhouse has been a gamagatsu red hook and a shiner. I have had alot of eyes hitting but the ones that have 80% have hit the plain hook. No takers on the spoons or the swedish pimps.

Just wondering if anyone has had more luck with anything else?

On Mille Lacs I like an orange Northland Eye Dropper with the treble hook. I also like the buckshot rattle spoon from northland. I like orange and green for colors, but I hear gold can be deadly as well.

Here is the tip of the century. Fish what you are confident in. If you are changing lures all the time, then you will not be in the water able to catch fish. You can get all the suggestions in the world on this website, but if you don't trust the suggestion or don't know how to use a specific lure properly you will not have success. If you are catching the numbers of fish that you expect, then don't change. If you like to experiment and learn to use a multitude of techniques you may be ready when fishing gets really tough. Just my thoughts.

My favorite lure to jig is a perch colored jiggin rap. I think it is the second smallest they make. I usually tip it with a minnow head or just eyeballs on the bottom treble. This lure will catch small and large eyes.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
