If you could bring just one...

Recommended Posts

If you could bring just 1 lure to Lake Of The Woods on the Canadian side in some secluded areas what would that bait be? I know it would depend on the time of year so lets just say in the Spring... I'm looking to get a few more lures to add to the box like i do every year.

Thanks for the help!

For all day fishability in slop and on the rocks I would choose a heavy spinnerbait. Probably a Rad Dog in black and chartruse wink Bang it off the rocks and thru the slop. I would choose the heavy single spin.

If given 2 lures I would switch up to a Double Cowgirl and a Topraider.

Definitely not a tough one... Majority of you already know what Im going to say here... grin

PINK/PINK COWGIRL

Definitely cant go wrong with this one... This lure has been HOT for me in 2007 once I got that one... Always will have a spot in my box... always will be with me when Im fishing for Muskies...

This may sound odd but I would probably bring a super spook in the 5 or 6" version blue and silver color. I caught alot of musky and northern on it up there last year... Either that or a 5 of diamonds spoon.

Thanks for all your suggestions! Man those cowgirls are expensive! I have never used one but have heard a lot about them. What makes them better than a normal bucktail just the added flash?

Thanks

There's no way to describe it until you try it yourself. The amount of water it moves is truly impressive (and also it's resistance to being reeled in). It's easier to reel in a hammerhandle that just ate your topwater than it is to pull this thing in on a normal retrieve. Even double 8's aren't much of a comparison to it. It really costs the same as two smaller bucktails, so it isn't that bad. I wouldn't go out and buy ten of them, but it'd be a good idea to have at least 1 in your box.

The one, the only.........BOBBIE BAIT!!! Incredible jerkbait that has been producing fish for many, many years and has probably been my best LOTW producer. Can troll them in the fall as well, so just a bonus.

You could make a good living on LOTW with just a spinnerbait.

Black/orange with flame blade is my choice for LOTW.

Fish rocks, cabbage, Slop, and even bulge it or gurgle it as a topwater. Spinnerbaits catch more fish for me on LOTW than anything else, but I also am throwing one 90% of the time.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • 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*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
