homemade Reel Lines

4 posts in this topic

I made some homemade reel lines the other night only spent around $20 to make and it made 4 lines with about 4-6 ft of the weeds on it, Im not going to lie I was a little worried if it was going to work. Set up last night in the crappie hole and after about 1hr the fish started to sit in the lines and around them, my buddy thought I was a fool until then and we started hitting the fish, we even pulled a nice muskie up on the tip up, have only heard of them been caught never seen them, it was awsome, few of the other guys fishing around me were amazed, so I highly would try it out

A buddy of mine made his own reel weeds type structure a couple months back and still hasn't tried them. He don't get out on the ice all that much, but I'll have to let him know about the success of your weeds so he can get out and give his a shot.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
