I received a gift of a bunch of 4" tube jigs from a buddy. For some reason there area about two dozen pink tubes in this bunch. Are these of any value to us Nordern Minneeesota guys or should I just give them to somebody who fishes salt water? I mean guys....pink?

I was told that pink will look orange the deeper is goes, so I bought a hot pink bucktail, and anxious to throw it.

Just say you were going after them lady fish. laugh.gif

I have had luck with a pink bucktail with a white blade for muskies before. I would give em a try. Might be something the fish havent seen alot of.

I would keep them and give them a try. I have fished the Ely area lakes for about 15 years. The water on many lakes is stained and color of any kind will help. My favorite jig color on these lakes has been pink. A pink jig and a leach on Garden lake, White Iron, Farm were deadly. On Vermillion for walleyes when live bait rigging I have had great success on smaller mepps tube jigs tipped with crawler/leech/minnow. My color choices have been greeen or white. I also like the whistler jig and pink has been a go to color. Trust me if you are cathing fish on something your buddies will gladly go with pink it that is what will put fish in the boat..

Pink tubes are my number one crappie getter. Of course I refer to the color as "bubble gum" wink.gif

Dtro beat me to it however his answer is correct.

We professional anglers call pink "Bubble Gum", it's more manly than "Pink". grin.gifgrin.gif

By the way, it will catch fish on Vermilion. smile.gif

"Ace" cool.gif

Terry,

My deepest thanks for correcting the dip in the testosterone level on this post. We have to help each

other out, when the natural order of things runs amuck.

Oh, my son Skyler absolutely slams the crappie on a white and BUBBLEGUM colored jig in the spring.

Your welcome Doug,

We all have to look out for each other, we can't have people going around telling everyone that my favorite color is "Pink". grin.gifgrin.gif

I also happen to have some "Bubble gum" colored Muskie baits that were custom painted for me, Oh the things we do to catch fish. grin.gif

"Ace" cool.gif

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
