Favorite lure?

Recommended Posts

sirsunnyslayer

Now that spring is almost here (sure felt like it today) and I think that just about everybody here has the itch for soft water, let's see what everybody's favorite lure is?

Mine is an old flatfish that is frog colored, about 4 inches long. I bet it must be 25 years old and I don't even know where I got it. It's got 4 treble hooks and gets caught on everything in the boat. I don't know if it's the color or the action but when the stars line up everything seems to eat it.

Were gonna need a bigger boat!

Welcome to FM sirsunnyslayer!

My favorite is a rapala. It catches just about everything that swims.

A jig and twister is a close second.

spinnerbaits and bucktails....u can fish them fast, slow, deep, shallow, and it seems like for bass, northern, and muskie....it can't be beat!

for walleyes...it is tough to beat casting a jig and a leech!

good luck and have fun!

If I had to pick one to fish with, it would be a silver/black rapala. Seems to catch just about any species I look for.

My sentimental favorite is an ancient Heddon mouse. The old wood one with the felt skin. My first big bucketmouth was caught on this lure when I was 8. I'm 33 now. I still have this in the box, and still make sure to cast with it anytime the topwater bite is on. Still outfiches any topwater lure in my box.

Oh you guys have got to try a Yo-Zuri Pin Minnow!!! This is an awsome floating minnow lure and it never fails for me.

Spinner baits, u can fish them however you want, and they'll always work if nothing else does.

Lead head jigs. I cast and paint my own, so I have a variety of hook sizes and colors for each weight of jigs. You can fish them with bait or plastics under lots of conditions. My costs for making each one is under 15 cents each, so I can fish the dirty places where the fish hang out and not feel bad if I lose a few jigs.

Silver Dr. Spoon. Although I've lost several over the years to pike that missed them so badly they've cut the line above the leader.

I'd hafta say that my favorite lure has been a Vibrax. I've caught more fish on them in-line spinners than anything else. I use a small one that Crappie's have grabbed and I've also caught my share of slightly larger fish on it as well such as a 3 lb smallie in the Rum River.

It would have to be a jig.In my opinion the most versatile bait out there.You can cast them,swim,jerk,shake,veticaly jig them,or just let it sit under a bobber.You can give it any kind of action that the fish desire.My favorite way to dress a jig is with a Ring-n-Grub.I fished with these grubs last year and from late september through november not once did it not catch a limit of fish for everyone in the boat.

Mine would have to be... depends on what i'm fishin' for...

Walleye - perch colored rapalas, slow trolled

Northern - Good ol' daredevle red & white

bass - spinners

crappie - small jig of whatever mathces the hatch.

or of course you can always go to the trusy standby of just a hook, a couple of split-shots, and a slip bobber. catches whatever is in the water... and has worked since before any of us were born...

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.
    • BrianF
      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
