Lure Selection

Recommended Posts

Guest

I was wondering what you guys are using for a your top three lure presentations. The only one I've really had much luck on is a Spoon tipped with a minnow head.

I just picked up the 2002 Ice Fishing Guide and I'll let you know how they work for me on Tuesday.

Thanks,
Jess

The Varmint spoon is always a good one. My favorite for a set-line is a red Gamakatsu hook with a blue bead above it. Always seems to catch the eyes. Gem-N-Eyes can also be very good. Let me know if you find any Hot new lures. Good Luck

IM A FAN OF BIG BAITS, LOVE THE 1/2 - 5/8 OZ. PIMPLE STYLE BAITS, SLAMMERS, KASTMASTERS,BUCKSHOTS ETC. WHEN THE PERCH ARE GOING THE'RE TOUGH TO BEAT, THEY ADD ALOT OF FLASH AND GET DOWN THE HOLE FAST. ALTHOUGH YOU MUST MATCH YOUR RODS AND LINE TO ACCOMODATE THE BIGGER BAITS, TOO LIGHT OF A ROD AND THE BIG BAITS WILL JUST FEEL LIKE MUSH MAKING IT HARD TO DETECT LIGHT AND LIFT BITES. GOOD LUCK BOYS AND KEEP POSTING UP

Perch:
1)One-inch glow spoon tipped with maggots

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them

      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
