what's the best way to work a burmek? slow speed, medium speed? Down deep or on the surface? I've never had any follows on them, but they sure have a nice action to them. I've just never had any luck with them.

ahc:

hey. i like to give a steady retrieve, then a couple quick 2ft jerk/pause, jerk/pause. mix it up a bit. the fish i've caught on this retireve generally spank it right after the second jerk/pause.

good luck...

      lol  it went back to straight after I let it sit an hour with out the jig attached.   would not have traded for a 30 dollar reel.  I might get my man card taken away. look at first pic. worth 50 bucks plus tax at gander.   90 day full return policy.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
