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.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for. Spikes  =  ~~~ Deep Fried Triple Thick Cut of F&D Smoked Bacon dipped into Smoked flavored Pancake Batter an dipped in Maple Syrup then rolled in pile of frozen Hickory smoked MayFlys. Both Killer Pak~ons seved on a stick or in a Deep Fried Walleye Belly Fillet. Power good experience that takes you places you never been before'!! : )   Keep on rocken!   T

      I bet one of those little cans of cat food would work too.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
