We are trying to put together our first trip with Stu. We would be arrive some time in mid March. What types of lures should we plan to have in our arcenal. I love to use Chubby Darters at LOW would these work fine and what pound test should we make sure we have on our rod before we tie into a big greenback. Thanks for your help!!

yes cd's are fine

jigging spoons also work great

as well as whistlers and thumpers

jigging raps are also great at times

i fish spoons/raps with 10lb...

jigs/cds with 6lb....

but i use a 12lb leader....

a fish over 10 lbs can put a big bite on your line

when it has swallowed your offering completely

you are driving up here for a fish of a lifetime

don't let a few head shakes get in your way

Thanks Manitoba, 12 mono leader? I usually use 6 ib test and then a swivel 6 ib again and then my jigging spoon or chubby. Would I just replace my second strand of line to 12 ib mono. Then you just tip the spoons with a tail or head or do you used the entire shinner. I really appreciate the help. I would like to be ready when I get up thier. We would like to make this an annual trip. Thanks again!!!

12-18 inch leader....don't forget

the next bite could be a 13-14-15lb fish

safer on the teeth

whole salted shiner wrapped around all 3 tines on a jigging spoon....not really a finess bite when they are on spoons

if you feel a bite the hook is in its mouth

sometimes you have to tease them up though

chubby or rap tail half on the bottom treble

Travel will all depend on snow cover conditions. If the snow cover is significant snowmobiles is the way to go. If it isn't much of an issue a 4 wheeler or pick-up truck

will work fine.

You must always take into account that in order to locate fish, you must have the capability to relocate when called upon to do so. This little rule of thumb is crucial and is the difference of tasting the thrill of success or the humilation of defeat. As the times draw near, I will give accurate updates on snow cover and fishing conditions.

If you would like to email me direct at info@voyageurparklodge.com I would love to hear your suggestions.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.
    • FishinCT
      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      My deck?

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
