question

10 posts in this topic

I know everyone is sick the extension question...but I'm coming up next Wednesday and I'm gonna pick up an extension for my Strikemaster tonight. Just curious if the 12" will be enough or should I just get the 18" right away? Will maybe be fishing around/near some heaves and rough ice.. any opinions?? thanks!! I cant wait to get back up there!

Well... I have a 12" Extension on my Strikemaster and I have yet to bottom out on URL or LOW in my last 10 years of ice fishing. The first half of those years was a Jiffy Model 30 with a 12" Extension.

I have come close w/ an extension but that is over 4' of ice! blush.gif

Go to the store sales forum and you can find the post there.

It was at the Strikemaster store in Big Lake.

Few years back fishing the heaves this time of year and we had the 12 and 18 on. Bring it all. I've never once thought to myself "I wish I hadn't brought those extensions along"

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
