Only allowed one lure, what would it be?

Recommended Posts

If you wanted to fish walleyes, bass, northerns...or any large game fish (all at once) and were allowed only ONE lure...what would it be??

I would bring a classic Rapala Minnow or a Heddon River Runt as these lures seem to catch all kinds of fish.

Mepps Marabou #3 white...come to think of it, I hardly even use this one... My most often used lure would still be a floating rap blue minnow #7 - 10 years old and still taking fish...

#5 Shallow Shad Rap in Perch. I have caught more fish on this than anything and it has the tooth marks to prove it grin.gif

I would pick a blue/crome rattle trap. Casts a country mile and can be fished fast or slow.

I'd take up golf with that kind of limitation, but I'll say a 3" white Mr. Twister and a 1/8 ounce jig.

Very hard, very hard. For those species I'd have to say a hook with a rainbow on it. Call me old fashion but it still catches fish. laugh.gif

I'd go with a Beetle Spin with a white twister tail - preferably Exude.

You've got your spinner and your jig - can be fished fast or slow, and can be worked at a variety of depths.

I've caught walleyes, bass, northerns, trout (both lake and stream), crappies and even whitefish on Beetle Spins.

An M-80 with a treble hook attached! Nah, I'd take a regular ballhead feather jig in the 1/4 ounce size...as it stands, I catch most of my fish on a 1/32 feather jig, everything from sunnies to pike.

For the species listed, a Shad Rap. Color pattern would depend on water color. Expand that to all species and it would be lead head jigs.

That's not a lure. That is bait.

I'd have to go with a countdown rapala. If it was going to be my only lure I'd certainly not use a plastic bait because after a few fish the bait would wear out and the tail might come off or get bit off. Nope, good old hard baits for me! Ole Matty, I got your Frenzy #7 from the walleye that bit you off and the lips are still attached to the front treble hook. Good bait but Ilike the versatility of the countdown. My .02.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?
    • Billy G
      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore. 
    • sartellangler05
      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
