Big 13 success??

11 posts in this topic

I picked up a couple of the Super Model DCG's last spring. I haven't used them a ton so I can't really judge them. Do any of you have opinions yet? I'll say this, waiting till the end of a trip to start throwing them may not be the best idea.

Box - I just picked up one of the Booty Tails (2x13) from TI, I'll be trying them this weekend, actually I kind of want to just bring that single bait out. I figure that way it will not be easy for the bait ADD to set in.

Man I' m the worst, I must change baits every 5 minutes... Is it obvious I don't have a whole lot of confidence in some of my baits.

RU I'm kinda the same but not as bad as changing every five minutes I do it like every half hour. I bought a double cowgirl and I tell ya I can only fish those [PoorWordUsage] things for five minutes - I need a power handle.

But back to lure ADD...I'm always thinking I could do this and I could do that but I try to stick with what I'm doing. But it's like how long do you keep doing the same thing before it is better if you switch it up you know?

My brother makes fun of me cause more than once I'll make one cast and switch if it doesn't "feel" right. No wonder I suck at this...

See I'm the opposite, I figure my chances are better the more time the lure is in the water, rather than me switching baits. As long as the presentation type is the same or I'm covering the same type of structure that I planned on, I stick with just a handful of baits all day

I haven't given them much time but so far have nothing to their claim.

I thought the reason we aquired so many baits is that we can use each and everyone per day of fishing, hum musta missed the stay with one bait all day thread.

My first time on Mille Lacs was the first time I used the pink/pink Cowgirl... call it sentimental... I guess... Just never had any reasons to use the SDCG yet...

Reels in pretty easy on the 7000i.

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
