Wonderbread

Recommended Posts

I was going through some gear tonight and was amazed at the amount of wonderbread hooks I have. Even have a few new spoons painted in wonderbread that Im excited to give  a shot this winter. It had me thinking at how such a weird color has exploded in the tackle industry. I will admit it was probably one of my best produceing colors last winter why I have know idea but the fish like it! Any one else find there selves using this color a bunch?

I haven’t used Wonderbread much but have always heard it’s a good color.  If it’s In glow, there’s no question why it works! 
 

The Lake Superior trollers love it.

It's a color that gets used quite a bit by me. I was first turned on to it years ago at Outdoors Again in Lake of The Woods. I even had a few Rippin Raps done in Wonderbread by a guy who does custom paint jobs on lures.

Use it a lot on Lake Michigan for salmon and trout.  Started adding it to my ice arsenal 2 winters ago and have done well with it at times.

I grabbed a couple from widow maker lures and loved them. they call it widow bread and all the polka dot jigs glow. Really does make a guy wonder why do the gills and crappies like it. Used last summer also. Only one left so better get more.

I thought wonder bread was a joke too but when I was a pro staff for a company everyone was bragging it up so they sent me some.  They worked great.  When I switched jig companies I had to talk him into painting wonder bread for me and within a week of advertising he was willing to make them he was flooded with order requests.  I have never used them in spoons or rap's though.  Last year ice fishing 5 of 20 limited out in hour half, we were the only 5 using wonder bread.  Before people say well those 5 people were the best 5 people on the ice 3 were under 16 and we were teaching them how to read a graph for the first time.

That color definitely works . More and more companies are comeing out with it in there hook line ups. Hopefully I find as much success with some of the spoons and Z vibes in that color as well 😁

Clam put it use on their flutter spoons, finally available to the public this year. Tested through the roof on perch last season 😀, its been a mainstay on their drop jig for years.

IceHawk,

 

If you like the Z vibe I encourage you to check out the K-Rip by Kender's Outdoors. Same kind of style but in some different colors and sizes.

Thanks I looked at them but didn't pull trigger yet. They do look encourageing. I have a few questions how do they fish? U try them yet? My concern was weight issues for deeper water aplications getting down faster so to speak.  I do have a few perch lakes that are shallow that they might be the ticket on.

I'm not sure what my reasoning behind it besides being cost but I have done really well on darker colors that are less appealing to our eyes but seem to catch fish and cost less. Done well on walleye and panfish with dark purples, blacks and brown. Chalking it up to my dumb luck

I do as well Kettle.  On one lake I fished last winter all they wanted was a dark maroon or purple jig with motor oil plastics.   The bright stuff didn't get bit.

 

It's good to have options so you can figure out what they want.

Ok, I think I'm about to learn something new?  🤔

Is there a brand or weight oil that works the best?  Like straight weight or multi-viscosity?  Have you tried the Synthetic's like Mobil 1?  Do you keep your plastics in or dip it before using? 😄

Every lake has a mystery about it for sure. Solving that mystery is what dictates a good day on the ice versus a bad one. Some lakes definitely  have color preferences.  Is color huge most of the time IMO no. I would say there are other things that play more effect in on a day of topsiding  fish other than color  Usally  its the cadence ones doing, the profile, match the hatch so to speak and the location and reason fish are in a area etc. Would I go to leech without something green ,Millacs blue, LOW gold, no as those colors on those lakes have always produced better than others and are known for it.  I fish the heck out of Lake  Koronis Jig rapping all year for walleyes and I have kept log books overthe years. There is one color Jig Rap that I will never set foot on this lake without. Its produced over 80 % of my fish hands down. I use multiple colors out there and this color always is lights out. Will I give that color out, probably not but you might be able to coax it out of another FM fisherman that knows me well 😀

Ok, but will you share what brand motor oil you dip it in? 😆

You find a good brand and try it first and fill me in on your success.  Who knows maybe you will get a kickback like Eyeguy 54 got from Majic Mikes skull mounts. Maybe with any luck you can get that sweatshirt you have been after for years. 😂

I knew a guy who swore by using WD40 on his minnows and I saw him do it and it did work but they probably would have bite anything

      It may be unkind but I don't know how putting the snow back that you removed would be unlawful.  Don't shoot the messenger; I am just passing along what I have heard.  I travel by snowmobile so I couldn't care less about plowed roads.  To me they are just a hazard for sledding. That being said, the people that used the plowed road today were very considerate.  They pulled well off of the road and kept a fair distance from others. I took a sled ride from McKinley Park to Fortune Bay and encountered at least 6 patches of slush.  I saw a couple of spots were 4 wheelers drove through slush; looks like they had a hard time.  I saw several 4 wheelers getting stuck in the deep snow today.  They would back up and take another run to keep going.  Traveling is very difficult for most wheelers.  I did see one Jeep on the lake just outside of McKinley Park bay. Good luck fishing and traveling on Lake Vermilion.

      The rod silly. 😁

      was planning on heading up to the cabin this weekend to do some snowmobiling, but since I had to ride across my lake I decided to wait. they had some good ice early, but then the warm weather, then 18 inches of snow, I would guess the lake is a mess. last report I had from a week ago, was no snowmobile or wheelers have been out on the ice.
    • monstermoose78
      It was good ice
    • Kettle
      Yea I definitely understand wanting to fish your "home lake." I'm the same way hence while a walked through the slush today, fishing was worth it and I didn't feel the need to exercise after getting home tonight. The conditions will definitely hamper a lot of people's plans. It's a bummer but thinking back it has been quite a few years of ideal conditions so I should feel fortunate for that!

      Ok so let me start off with I don’t have a big truck with a V-plow, but did make one for my wheeler so I could get on and off with no help from any one else, and I can not tell you how many times I have helped people to get there stuff off the lake.. So long story short many years ago I spent 8-10 hours plowing a road (at that time just had a straight blade plow) and then set down the fishhouse and did not even drill a hole just to tired!!!!! Yep you guess it.... woke up and had a village around me, well that is the way it goes??? So a couple days later decided to move, well got my truck and fish house stuck and had to unhook my fishhouse and hand shovel to get my truck unstuck hook up a chain to get my fishhouse turned so I could hook up again, while there was two guys drinking coffee not more then 15-20 yds away that did not lift a finger to help, so went home got the wheeler and as I was coming back out they stopped me and asked if I could help them out!!!!!! Yep really!!!!!! So second story have a uncle that had his kid that has a plow to punch a road to his fishhouse so he did well one day he is coming off the lake and some one decided to put his wheel house right on the road!!!!! So he knots on the door and the guy told him well sucks to be you!!!!!!!! So you wonder why these guys get a bit upset????? Not to mention going out to my house and having holes drilled I don’t no inches around my house!!!!!!!!! Yep it is not you doing it but yep kind of really makes a person upset!!!!!! Man they need to realize that the guy that made that road is your life line to get off also!!!!!! So like JerkinLips said if you happen to see a person keeping the road open toss him some money or in my case some beer, will make your life a lot easier when you want to get off...

      we are on a smaller lake by spring lake. there was 7 inches of ice already the 3rd weekend of deer hunting, at least where I checked. but there was no snow out on the lake at that time. with your report i'm sure there's more then enough slush out there. I've been fishing that lake since I've been 6 years old.

      Got out this afternoon for a few hours and found the landing parking lot to be a drifted rutted up mess. Was able to throttle my way in and barely not getting stuck. Found 6-7” of good hard clear ice. Fish were not lacking today that’s for sure.  I caught between 100-200 gills and crappies and a few perch mixed in. Gills ranged from tiny to 8” and crappies were all 8-9”. 4-6” of snow and no flooding going on. Fish were stacked and I was able to sit and catch one after other while staying nice and toasty in the otter. Fun afternoon and got to put the clam drill plate to use and all I can say is wow! That thing is the best auger I’ve used and definitely will change the way I fish. Should be able to use it all season besides drilling spear holes which I’ll leave to the solo. Fun trip! Tentatively planning on skipping next Friday and heading up north to do some spearing. Lake I’m gonna try has for sure 4” so good for walking but was hoping to take the new snowmobile up with me and use that for transportation so we will have to see if I’ll be able to or not. Back down to -20 tonight and barely above 0 tomorrow.
