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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
