Does anyone know if I can get them at URL or Grand Rapids on my way up to URL this weekend?

Last weekend Froggys sports in Cass Lake said they were getting some in. I don't know if they arrived or not but that's what the gal told me.

I thought I heard something about a Deer River bait shop carrying them. I can't personally confirm that however.

I did try Emeralds 2 weekends ago on URL and the walleyes sure seamed to love them, crappies on the other hand, not so much.

With my experience last weekend, I still believe that location, location, location is more important than any type of bait selection. When you work to find active fish, they will hit anything.

Sorry this is off the subject, End of the Line if you see a guy up there this weekend with a white Tundra staring at your ice mansion for a long time that would be me. I saw the pics and I'd like to see the real thing.

West Wind had them last time I was up in early Febuary.

We caught all of our crappies (6) on them and a bunch of eyes too.

Maybe give them a call to make sure.

I saw some packaged at Gander Mtn in Woodbury last night. Not sure what the technique used is but they look plenty natural. Just wondering if anyone tried something like this. Looked like 3 dozen or so for $9.00. Once you open the pkg I think they will be toast so it may not be that great of an idea. Any thoughts?? Especially if they are hard to find live.

MJ,

Stop by if you see the house anytime. I think we'll be off Hillman's, but to be determined alittle later tonight. My name is on the house and I have a white Chevy 2500 crew cab.

I got them the last few times in deer river, Fred's on west side of town i think it was. Boy did they love those guys. Next time I think I will see if some river shiners will work too; they look identical.

West Wind does have them. The walleyes love them and when the crappies are hungry they will bite on anything.

Thanks guys. I am leaving Duluth area around 7am. I will be off Hillman's Road for those that want to stop by and check out the shack. Might make it in for Roll call at noon on Sat, but we'll see. wink.gif There is an "End of the Line" decal right by the door.

Thanks for the hospitality, I was looking but didn't see you. Maybe next year.

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.
