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

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

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
