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,

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
