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.

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
