I have tried the luhr jensen version for salmon fishing and didn't hit anything. Hit plenty of them on similar j plugs but nothing on the led [PoorWordUsage]. Seems like an interesting idea though!

you can't criticize a lure after two outings with it, many factors could be the result why you didn't catch anything. maybe it's the user that doesn't work... =) I myself haven't tried them, I don't get too fancy with my lure selection. If you truly wanna know how they work, buy em n' try em. It's not going to break your bankroll buying a few jigs. Let me know if you end up buying them and how they are.

I bought a pack of the pink ones last year before our trip to LOTW out of Zipple Bay and used them on a bobber line. My bobber line out performed the other three lines 2 to 1. What does that mean, not sure but I accredited it to the jig. Haven't really used them anymore since then, but will again be heading to LOTW Feb 15th (Arnesen's this time) and will try again. If I remember I will post how we did this time.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
