Gonna try to get the Mrs. a fish this weekend

Recommended Posts

I'm doing something different this year and instead of and intense beat the snot out of the water opener this year I'm taking the boss out to chase skis. She's fished a ton, just not much for muskies. I'm thinking one of the easiest and most fun lures for a novice to fish is a Pacemaker/Topraider type bait. Casts easy, doesn't pull at all, follows are easy to detect.

Anyone disagree or have a better suggestion?

Only real problem is if she starts to ask how much all that shiny stuff costs!! sick

Yeah I'd say standard retrieval topwater baits would probably be the best in terms of ease of use, follow detection and there just plain entertaining to retrieve. You can never go wrong with throwing small buck's around as well. Good to hear the Mrs. enjoys hitting the water...enjoy yourself and best of luck! Oh, and maybe keep the lid of your tackle box closed. wink

Right on Erik, when my wife comes with she only wants to use the "pop - pop - pop" lure as she calls it. Which is either the LOWRider or the TopRaider. She'll also fish time-to-time with a Musky Mania "Sneaky Pete" inline spinner, and that is only because she like the name.

Considering where you're heading, i'd be all over having her throw prop topwaters or creepers. Or you could hit up another certain lake and throw anything and come out on top! (are we still talking about fishing? lol) How's that duck boat workin?? wink

Hiya -

Another REALLY good one: an 8-inch Believer. Anybody can cast it. Floats like a cork. Almost impossible to hang it up. And, fish just eat the things. Just cast it out and reel it in.

I've probably had more first-timers say "I've got one!" with an 8-inch Believer on than all the other lures put together.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
