bottom bouncers

3 posts in this topic

Whats the idea behind bottom bouncers.Is the idea to keep your bait up off the bottom, say in a rocky area, where a lindy sinker would get caught between the rocks.Or why wouldn't you just use a lindy rig.

Snag resistance is a bonus as is the heavier weights available with bouncers, for the ability to move a bit faster, say with spinners..

the bottom bouncer allows you to fish cranks and spinner rigs at higher speeds and keep the bait you are using in the strike zone. it is a very effective tactic on certain bodies of water in the state. if you ask the guys on the st. louis river how many of them use bouncers 90% would say they do. it is a great way to fish live bait and cranks in deep water and current if you dont want to mess with lead core.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
