Canoe Country Laker Lures Tipped With ???

Recommended Posts

Casaloma

Hi all, I'm into Knife & Kek next week & am wondering what ( with the smelt/ cisco laws ) people are using to tip lures with, if anything?

I'll be employing the 3 way/ drop shot methods for the most part, as past success in Quetico & on these lakes leads me to stick to that. Sutton spoons have been killing it the last couple of years. I'd be interested in any thoughts & experience with 'cured' cisco, frozen suckers & other ideas... Stinger hooks??? I don't carry Gulp 'sauce' anymore on backcountry trips due to the pure nastiness of accidental spills sick.

Also packed some 'Hog Walleye Spinners' from our resident 'Spinner tier' - At least thats what walleyes4me says on his card- & will see if I can coax a border lake hog up...

Thanks! -CLoma

I agree with you about the GULP and accidental spills. My wife wasn't looking fondly at my pint of GULP in the food pack so I took to putting it in my personal bag. I ended up smelling like GULP by the time the trip was over--a walking/sleeping bear bait. They need to make a more secure container. I did have good luck with it but I also had good luck with the 2 and 3 inch curly tail Berkeley power grubs in the recloseable/non-liquid bag. Tipped bigger bucktail jigs with them and also used just a plain jig head and the grub.

One tip with Gulp if you dont buy the "Spill Proof" containers. Just cut a small slit in the cardboard when you open them. Just enough to get a finger and thumb into. Dont touch the seal on the edges of the containers. Gulp should actually sell them in the "Spill Proof" containers for what they charge for the stuff.

I find Power Baits will do the trick nicely. I use the Smelt on my flies on the Big Lake and catch trout on them.

Ok, frozen sucker parts for me. I've been snapped off on Kek a kabic more than once. Partner got a 40" skinny Pike one May. Anyone get into Pike there?

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
