Looking for a spinner before the weekend

Recommended Posts

I'm going to try spearing a lake Saturday that I've been told having a spinner can really make a difference, I don't have the time this week to make one so I thought I'd check on here and see if anyone reasonably close had one they would sell. Long shot but figured I'd ask

Thanks MJ, ordered one of the mini teasers from Thorne brothers, I was possibly going to drive down there once I saw they carried them but realized even expedited shipping was cheaper then gas there and back.

Picked up a few spoons at fleet that looked flashy.

Do you guys prefer just the spinner in the hole or do you like a combo of a spinner and live sucker or wooden decoy?

Looks great, but don't forget the old red/white spoon that has been my go to this year

I run a spoon and a fake decoy

I also have run a sucker and a spoon

I have done both but this year I havee hardly used a live decoy and done very well.

I havent used my spinner much at all this year.

Seems like I usually only put it down when nothing else is working. I should probably use it more.

Thanks guys, I was using a live sucker and a fake decoy earlier and I think I missed out on a 10lb plus fish because of it, he raced in and grabbed the live sucker and took off, I have a feeling if I just had the fake one down he would have come in nice and slow giving me a shot, I've heard the spinners almost hypnotize the fish and they just sit and stare at it.

Yep thats what they do ,but this weekend I had two smaller pike explode on my soon that was spinning it was the first time that I have that happen. I have had them blast it when I jig the spoon but not when its spinning.

I use rwo decoys and a red eye wiggler with the hooks removed. That wiggler is deadly. They constantly bite it and come back. I shoot pike with bowfishing equip. And the first fish this year i missed 4times !

He just would circle back and kept coming. Yes..... I finally got him!

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
