Only allowed one lure, what would it be?

Recommended Posts

If you wanted to fish walleyes, bass, northerns...or any large game fish (all at once) and were allowed only ONE lure...what would it be??

I would bring a classic Rapala Minnow or a Heddon River Runt as these lures seem to catch all kinds of fish.

Mepps Marabou #3 white...come to think of it, I hardly even use this one... My most often used lure would still be a floating rap blue minnow #7 - 10 years old and still taking fish...

#5 Shallow Shad Rap in Perch. I have caught more fish on this than anything and it has the tooth marks to prove it grin.gif

I would pick a blue/crome rattle trap. Casts a country mile and can be fished fast or slow.

I'd take up golf with that kind of limitation, but I'll say a 3" white Mr. Twister and a 1/8 ounce jig.

Very hard, very hard. For those species I'd have to say a hook with a rainbow on it. Call me old fashion but it still catches fish. laugh.gif

I'd go with a Beetle Spin with a white twister tail - preferably Exude.

You've got your spinner and your jig - can be fished fast or slow, and can be worked at a variety of depths.

I've caught walleyes, bass, northerns, trout (both lake and stream), crappies and even whitefish on Beetle Spins.

An M-80 with a treble hook attached! Nah, I'd take a regular ballhead feather jig in the 1/4 ounce size...as it stands, I catch most of my fish on a 1/32 feather jig, everything from sunnies to pike.

For the species listed, a Shad Rap. Color pattern would depend on water color. Expand that to all species and it would be lead head jigs.

That's not a lure. That is bait.

I'd have to go with a countdown rapala. If it was going to be my only lure I'd certainly not use a plastic bait because after a few fish the bait would wear out and the tail might come off or get bit off. Nope, good old hard baits for me! Ole Matty, I got your Frenzy #7 from the walleye that bit you off and the lips are still attached to the front treble hook. Good bait but Ilike the versatility of the countdown. My .02.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
