Lure colors for Mille Lacs

8 posts in this topic

Just starting to load the tackle box for the big pond and am looking for color suggestions - mostly for tails/spinnerbaits. I have a variety and as most musky freaks can't fit them all in one box. Thanks, later.

The water is very dirty in spots and very clear in others. Location is key on Mille Lacs right now as many of the usual haunts just plain s*&* right now. I d stay south and east to start. Throwing a silver blue dcg, big bright top water, white bulldawg. Good luck!

Black then red, then maybe red and black and if you get crazy try a nickle and blue cowgirl and see what happens!!!

Two votes for nickel/blue - musky be a tuli thing. I don't have the components to make one and they were $29.99 at Gander - forget that. They're gonna have to want a different color!

I always thought the brighter colors, chartreuse, firetiger, etc were the way to go. But I admit I haven't had much success on ML.

I've got a CG that is red/gold that had got me some action too.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
