What's been hot for lures?


Recommended Posts

We are coming up on Sunday to the South side. Is anyone willing to offer tips on what's been working. Gold Rock n Rolls have always been good in the past, but I haven't seen or heard much mention lately. Buck shots tipped with heads?

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Your right on both of your choices. also the new jig called the Stop Sign is good. If you look back in the posts there was alot of talk about the SS. The bite has been a bit slow on the South, but the weather has caused alot of the Slow Down!Has to pick up soon.

I would also reccomend having some jigging shad raps along in the glow red color. Been my go to jig all year along with the stop sign.

Do you know who makes the "stop sign"?

Has anyone every tried Hali's that have the hook attached to the little 1 inch chain?

Jr's Tackle makes the original stop sign but theres a couple people out there making some that look the same in quite a few different colors. Start out with the glow red, seems to work the best on LOW, I have found. You can get them right from Jr's or most of the bait shops in the area carry them now.

6 of us were up fishing the 2nd and 3rd last week and all of our fish came on the deadsticks nothing hit the jigs. On both days we gave up on jigging and went with dead sticks only

I'm with NAMA on this. I've used the stopsign and glow red jigging shads to ice the majority of my fish on LOW for the past 3 years. If neither of those is working, I'll break out something smaller like a glow drop in pink or a smaller stop sign. I might change to an all gold demon if things are still going bad and no fish are cooperating. Then I might try something slower that flutter in gold or glow red like a angel eye if I'm marking them and they won't bite. If none of these are working your best bet is probably a plain jig or red hook under a bobber or deadstick as eyes1 suggests, or come back another day.

A nice flutter style drop jig that worked really well for me when I was up last year in gold or in glow pink is JB Lure's Jig Eye. They also make a Gem-n-eye, but I prefer the treble hook that comes with the Jig Eye. Lost only one fish out of several hooked in the 3 days we fished up there last year, which says a great deal about the quality of the hooks they come on. I have already secured my Stop Signs for this year's trip (coming up Jan. 9-12). Hopefully they work as well as I've been reading on here.

By the way, for any FM regulars on here, this is my new posting name. I used to post under the name Big Otis, but a couple of days ago something happened. The login password and everything I have been using simply stopped working, so now I'm posting under the name Lakers. Has anybody else had this problem? I thought it to be pretty strange.

I will post how well this weekend's trip worked and what worked and didn't work when I get back on 9-13-08.

Good luck to anybody else heading up this week/weekend!!

I'm making my first trip ever up tomorrow. Pardon my ignorance, but I've read what a stop sign is, but do people fish them as a jig, or do they fish them with a dropper rig below the stop sign? Or both?

I think we're going to stop at Border Bait on the way to Zippel. Does anyone know if they have them, or if there's another bait shop recommended on the way up? Thanks all and good luck!

Yep Border Bait as well as Log Cabin both have a nice selection of them in different colors. I haven't heard of anyone fishing them on a deadstick with a dropper but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Give it a try! Mostly though you fish them as a jig with either a whole frozen shiner or hook half a frozen shiner through head and jig it that way. Good Luck!

Why does it always seem Lake of the Woods has a new "jig of choice?" Last year it was the Chubby Darter and now the Stop Sign. All this does is make me go spend more money on tackle when I already have a box full of junk and only four jigs I use. laugh

I can't go by a tackle shop without buying something new and just got back from LOW and a plain red hook with a yellow bead caught most of the fish!

Do you tip your angel eyes with a minnow head?

Does anyone recommend a place in Baudette where we can pick up shiners, frozen or alive?

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      It was a perfect day for a walk with the dogs.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.

      Went duck hunting at my dads house I missed the only duck in range. The we went grouse hunting and we put 6 miles walking in and flushed two grouse and a woodcock.
