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.

      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!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
