Splake

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Can anyone share any tips on catching splake? I've done some fishing for rainbows and lakers but not splake. Any information would be helpful, oh, and the lakes you've fished for them, too. Thank you,

Chad

have caught splake anywhere from 5 to 80 foot of water. Used to fish Kramer lake -start in 12 ft and work my way out to deep water. When fishin deep you need electronics cause the fish would come in any where from 50 ft to 10 ft below the ice. I used brined minnows (1/2) or waxies on a small jiggin spoon. Fished a lake up by Ely a few weeks ago and caught everything in 5 to 9 ft. of water. Haven't fished Kramer for a couple years but we used to pick up browns now and then too. I would have to say that most poeple fish splake in 20 ft or less.

If you don't mind traveling a little farther north, Larson lake near Effie has some dandy splake. The state record came out of there a few times.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
