I'm looking for some buzz bombs for summer laker jigging. Widely used in Canada for vertical jigging, the diamond shaped lead lures slip up and down the line to a terminal hook, and they really do the job.

Never found them in the U.S., but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a supplier somewhere in the area.

Cabela's used to have them in their trout + salmon catalog, probably still do. I got some from them a couple years ago. Otherwise I've bought them in Fort Frances. Maybe you could find them in I Falls.

I found the company's Web site and can order them. I'll take a look at Cabela's and see about pricing. Never have seen them up here, but I'm wondering if anyone knows whether Marine General in Duluth might have some.

I believe that Fisherman's Corner has them and I am pretty sure that MG does not. I haven't really kept my eye open for them for a couple years, but Fisherman's Corner was the only place that had them around here at the time.

Steve, I'm not sure which sizes I want. I've e-mailed the company with Burntside conditions about water clarity, depth and forage and am waiting for a recommendation. I'll be leaning toward smelt-type color patterns, and I see on their Web site they've got two or three that look VERY smeltish, including some pearl series paint jobs.

We'll see if they get back to me by tomorrow. There are a variety of sizes, and it's the sizes, more than the patterns, I'd like a little help with.

Thanks for all the help, guys. Buzz Bomb already got back to me with size recommendations. Guess it helped that they are two hours behind us out in British Columbia. grin.gifgrin.gif

I'll call Scott tomorrow and compare prices with the online manufacturer's ordering. There's no rush. I don't need them until summer for vertical jigging out of the boat.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
