Lures

5 posts in this topic

My girlfriends dads gave me a big tackle box with pretty much all of the basic muskie lures in it. I am going out this weekend and I'm fairly new to the sport so i was wonder what lures to use this saturday. I will be fishing a fairly clear lake. I'm still looking for my first fish over 40 inches. hopefully I get it this weekend. Thanks in advance for the help

Yo King, clear water u say, we've been slowly fishing dawgs and it has worked great so far in 09'. Actually, we've found some of these fish in open water suspended off points and humps. The strikes are coming as the bait is falling through the water column before it hits or nears bottom. Soft strikes, but angry once hooked up.

I'd say that lures are more dependent on the spot your fishing than the lake, but you can factor in color. For clear water usually go with the more natural colors, or on a bright day maybe go gaudy. But if your fishin shallow early or late in the day a topwater is hard to beat, during the day i like dawgs or gliders. Good luck.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?

    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
