Go to northern colors.......

22 posts in this topic

#1 Orange and black

#2 Orange and black

and if you don't use orange and black I would choose

#3 Orange and black

If you don't catch northerns on orange and black they simply aren't biting or there aren't any in the lake!!!! Any weather any time of the day, orange and black, overcast sunny rainy foggy snowing blowing etc... etc..... Orange and black... It's that simple.....

Let's see. There's perch patterns, plain ol' white, silver/black shad patterns, gold, chartruese, chrome/blue, crayfish red, black, orange/yellow...

Great thing about northerns, you can zone in on a color and find out they are biting just as well on another. I love catching 'em.

Chrome/blue would be my top though, followed closely by white.

Large Black/silver and Perch colored raps have always done good for me. Remember trolling large black/silver #13's on Little Man Trap Lake a few years ago about this time of year and just killed the northerns!

I'll 5th or 6th or whatever the Black and Orange comments.

This lure is my go to on any lake, any conditions, any time of year for pike fishing (and muskies at times too). Its a horrible picture, but black bucktail body, trailer hook with yellow twister tail and a "fire" colored blade that goes from chartreuse to a bright orange. The Candyspin!

Perch crank, or Firetiger crank. We almost always draw the triangle black "stripes" on any cranks we get, to resemble the perch pattern, for pike or walleye. Sharpies are always in our box smile

But black and orange or black and chartruese are in general the colors on those lures, so I agree with the consensus for our fishing.

I agree with pink, pink catches fish, just can't find pink lures very often.

So orange and black or perch patterns are good.

Hammered Orange and Gold

Five of Diamonds

Chartreuse and Green

When I think Northerns I think spoons. They are fun when they are hitting Amazon Rippers though. I just love flying fish.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
