Now don't laugh

I received a gift of a bunch of 4" tube jigs from a buddy. For some reason there area about two dozen pink tubes in this bunch. Are these of any value to us Nordern Minneeesota guys or should I just give them to somebody who fishes salt water? I mean guys....pink?

I was told that pink will look orange the deeper is goes, so I bought a hot pink bucktail, and anxious to throw it.

Just say you were going after them lady fish. laugh.gif

I have had luck with a pink bucktail with a white blade for muskies before. I would give em a try. Might be something the fish havent seen alot of.

I would keep them and give them a try. I have fished the Ely area lakes for about 15 years. The water on many lakes is stained and color of any kind will help. My favorite jig color on these lakes has been pink. A pink jig and a leach on Garden lake, White Iron, Farm were deadly. On Vermillion for walleyes when live bait rigging I have had great success on smaller mepps tube jigs tipped with crawler/leech/minnow. My color choices have been greeen or white. I also like the whistler jig and pink has been a go to color. Trust me if you are cathing fish on something your buddies will gladly go with pink it that is what will put fish in the boat..

Pink tubes are my number one crappie getter. Of course I refer to the color as "bubble gum" wink.gif

Dtro beat me to it however his answer is correct.

We professional anglers call pink "Bubble Gum", it's more manly than "Pink". grin.gifgrin.gif

By the way, it will catch fish on Vermilion. smile.gif

"Ace" cool.gif

Terry,

My deepest thanks for correcting the dip in the testosterone level on this post. We have to help each

other out, when the natural order of things runs amuck.

Oh, my son Skyler absolutely slams the crappie on a white and BUBBLEGUM colored jig in the spring.

Your welcome Doug,

We all have to look out for each other, we can't have people going around telling everyone that my favorite color is "Pink". grin.gifgrin.gif

I also happen to have some "Bubble gum" colored Muskie baits that were custom painted for me, Oh the things we do to catch fish. grin.gif

"Ace" cool.gif

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
