5 posts in this topic

Alright, so my brother was recently hooked on musky fishing this past summer and I've decided that his early birthday present will be a new rod and reel. Any suggestions???

hey Sweetie, i bought your bro a rod and reel recently for his birthday but if you wanted some fun ideas on baits he should get i would recomend going to the Muskies/Pike forum found higher on this page and ask the boys to post their top ten fave baits so you have a list. also i am going to the muskie expo next weekend with Dano the Jigasuarus so if you get a list you should let me know some baits you might want to get him because chances are i can find some rare or custom colors at the show.

Oh and I'll ask him about the colors. Any suggestions on other fishing gifts I could get him, now that you've covered my main idea?

If you still want to get him a rod/reel combo, go to Thorne Bros website. They have a Fenwick HMX rod with a Garcia 6600 SSC3 reel for 159 bucks. Great deal. You can choose from the rod lengths and such. Baits are always a good thing as well, since you can never have enough of them! grin.gif

Find out what he has for lures already and just build off of that. The basics of a few bucktails (Eagletails, Mepps Maribou, Cowgirl, Grinder, etc), topwaters (Topraider, doc/jackpot, creeper), various jerkbaits (Suicks, bobbie baits, mantas, amma bamma, burts) and crankbaits. Can't go wrong with them!

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
