MCI

Decoy ?

7 posts in this topic

Last year for x-mas I got my boys (11 and 14) each their own spears. My 11yr old stuck his first pike last Jan. and now he's hooked.  My oldest didn't stick any last year but he's chomping at the bit for cold weather and ice.

I have a red/white and a black/white decoy that I use. Both are made from real wood and have tin fins, I got both of these from my dad so they are pretty old. Last year my boys used my decoys, for x-mas this year I want to get them their own decoys. I've looked at a couple of places and all I found were plastic cheap ones. I've always had really good luck with my red and white decoy, so that is what I'm looking for to give to them.

Can anyone tell where I can buy decoys like the above mentioned?

Prince bait on Hwy 169 in Milaca has a good selection of cheaper decoys as well as really nice Wallace decoys.  

 

I really like the battery operated spinner with a spoon but the lake I spear seems a bit different than other lakes.  My daughter got hooked on spearing last year as well she got fish with decoys, the spinner, live decoys and a home made red and white that her grandpa made for her.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
