Catching fish on household items.

We decided to go around the house and see what we could use for fishing lures. Its amazing what fish will eat. Also, watch for a chance to win a free lure.

I made a spoon lure like that 45 years ago as a kid. Cut off the handle a half inch from spoon and mounted split ring and hook. Caught lots of northern on it. Still have it too.

Hey there fish_time ! Very cool video , that sure gives meaning to changing it up . I just hope you can still enjoy a bowl of soup , or eat your morning oatmeal , and hope you were not locked out of your house when you got home . .  At least your wife will know where her diamond ring or earrings went to if she ever discovers them missing some day down the road.. I just had to throw these at you , but all jokes aside , it does show that your creativity catches fish , and who doesn't like catching fish !  I learned along time ago that being creative, when it comes to fishing can pay off big time . .  What you gonna try next ?

We were walleye fishing on Lac Seul one time and while eating our lunch I tried red licorice and Swiss cheese strips and caught them on both.

Our boat guide on Superior once made some lures out of door hinges and reflective tape! But he never used them when we were out. :lol:

That hinge idea sounds like a good one. Get one of those zinc strap hinges that go to a point on each end and put reflective tape on one side.

That is exactly the way it was made. ;)

Back before Euro larvae we used goldenrod grubs. One year I ran out and used small pieces of bacon fat. The sunfish bit almost the same.

Chicken skin.  Cut it in wax worm size strips or whatever size you want.  Holds well on the hook.

Haven’t tried it in years but it worked just fine and held up to multiple fish.  Just got away from it when I quit fishing panfish through the ice.  Might be a good thing to get back to.

I took a set of my mother's ear- rings and made lures out of them.. Do not remember if i ever caught anything on them. But they were flashy.

      Heard you on Horseshoe and then a bit further south.   Hope you had some luck and stayed warm.

      I didn't find it, just passing the info of a post I saw on Craigslist. One would think if they could access the information, it would be a done deal.

      Any reports on Grindstone lake? What have y’all been catching and what size?
    • leech~~
      Couldn't you find any contact info or was the battery dead?

      You’ll like em.  And these temps are exactly the reason to invest in gear like that.  I just spent the entire day out fishing in mine.  Temp topped out at 5; wind gusts and snow.  Half the time in the open and half in a poorly heated flip over.

      Post on Craigslist that a person found a phone on North Center lake.....under sporting goods.

      Cars seem to be going to all areas of the lake.  Very light traffic.  I wasn't home this weekend so I don't know what was going on.

      Shiners are hard to find right now. If you can get smaller suckers those worked good.  I fished 32ft off edge of mud flat last weekend. Everything we caught was on Bobber or rattle reel. Tried everything from tinglers to rippin raps last weekend for jigging, no luck.  The extreme cold did not help.  I usually do good jigging. I usually fish 3ft off bottom that deep.  Every fish we did catch was over 25 inches. 4 total the whole weekend. Missed a few others. Rattle reels worked well. Orange glow seemed to be a good glow Jig.

      1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!

      Liberty beach 20 dollar weekend pass with free drink token lol. I ended going out of hunters to the mud flats last weekend.  Didn't see liberty beach sign until next day. Not sure how far there roads go out. Hunters was having problems keeping roads open due too cracking.  But they always had options to get in.  1 hour to get off lake Sunday as center road was closed.  Lots of people going out and some of the people were driving too fast on the roads. I was going 10 mph hauling my wheel house and had a guy pass me on way in with a tandem so... It is was it is.
