What are your four favorite cranks to pull in the fall?

5 posts in this topic

I just thought I'd toss this out as I have been going up there in the fall for a few years and have some luck on many different colors. The best for me has been shallow shad rap #9 in chartruesse or blue, # 10-12 glass husky jerks in perch, thundersticks in black back and silver g-fleck finish, pink and white thunder stick with black stripes. These have performed for me the best the last few years. I haven't been able to dial in on the reef runners yet but have heard that they can definately produce too. Anyone else care to weigh in on this?

im just getting into trolling again and looking forward to this fall. it seems like there are a lot of ways to get a lot of different baits down where the walleyes are. i have always been a light tackle kind of fisherman...6/2 fireline & spinning real with 7' rod, until i win lotto...lol. on mille lacs, my best luck has come on #5 shad raps, deep & shallow depending... i tend to stick with colors that match any kind of bait fish the walleye might be eating. ive seen lots of walleyes caught on heavy rigs with #11 and bigger bait too. wouldnt it be wonderful to have the means to have two of every kind of fishing rig set-up emaginable to fish for walleyes?...hahaha. it would be a lot of work seriously trying all the combos on a one day fishing trip. thats why those guys are professionals!

regards,

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
