If you could bring just one...

12 posts in this topic

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.

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...

Might be a believer for me. You can troll it...reel it fast...reel slow and you have a topwater.

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.

    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
    • We just got shut out down by Caledonia also so don't feel bad and we've been turkey hunting since 1980.  We were on private land also but found the birds still flocked up.  We had flocks of 12 - 15 birds we were trying to work and it didn't work.  2 out of 3 could have shot jakes and we all had plays that just did not work out.  That's turkey hunting.
    • I have mapped but never submitted it to be processed. However I have downloaded maps from insight and used them. They work good if your willing to go thru the extra step to download them. If I remember correctly you will have to choose them in chart options or it will just show your regular insight map. The real nice thing is they are free!   I mostly use Navionics I find I like them better than the insight maps & its easier to download user generated maps.
    • Do you know if the GPS tracker part works without cell service? I think that is going to be my biggest issue, I don't know if I can track another phone from my phone without cell signal.
    • Come on BB, you don't have to be positive or a homer to realize this team is light years better than they were 3/4 years ago. The results haven't changed, but that isn't saying they haven't improved. 3/4 years ago we had young guys like Brodin, Haula, Coyle, Nino just getting their wings. This year they had career years in many cases. That is precisely what we have been hoping/waiting for them to do. The way you talk it seems like you forget that the NHL playoffs are best of 7 series. That's a long grind for any team to make and you have to have a lot of luck and some guys playing out of their mind to make it to the finals. I'm not happy they lost in 5 to the Blues, but I'm not giving up on this team either. They do need to make changes, which will reshape this team for next season. Pump some more youth into the lineup and we could certainly have some up and down next year. Like I said before, go back and see our predictions for where they would finish at the beginning the of the season. I am pretty sure I said they would finish like 5th place. Finishing 2nd all things considered, was a pleasant surprise, but guess what, everyone whined about it! LOL
    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
