Lures

9 posts in this topic

I am interested in knowing some MUST HAVE musky lures besides a bucktail which I already have. Also, what are some good deep water baits that are good for casting.

I have boxes of what I thought were "Must Haves", as do many others I'm sure.

Here's what you can simplify down to and be just as successful:

Rad Dog spinnerbait, single blade

Believer 8 or 10 inch

Suick

2 bucks, one big and one little

Shallow crank like Storm Giant Thunderstick

A deeper crank

Maybe a Bulldawg or two

I should practice what I preach but essentially that will cover the bases.

Good luck!

I like the addition of the Hellhound, good call!

I forgot a topwater like the Wades you mentioned, for me its a Weagle, they've served me well.

This is EXACTLY how a few lures become a lot!

You will get a thousond differant answers on this, and I like all of the above and also a good shallow crank/twitch bait that I have become real fond of is a Molly Bait, it's almost neutral bouyant and rips thru the water easy. Also a Topraider is a topwater prop bait that most everyone I know has. Spinnerbaits- I like CJs, Raddogs, and Grinders. Good luck and have fun!

Shiny double bladed bucktail!

Hawg wobbler!

Top Raider!

I'm starting to like shallow invaders and other similar rubber shallow cranks.

deepwater overlooked lures are spinnerbaits, bucher's slopmaster i like because with the head flatened out like it is, it's easier for me to keep the bait horizontal on the drop and that makes the hair billow nicer than a head forward fall, IMHO.

must have, that's a toughy. but besides a spinnerbait the swimwhizz or believer are real nice lures. 2 different tie loops for shallow/tight action and deep/wide action. very versital and with two company's making basicly (size difference and plastic thickness) the same lure the color array is huge. size. believer is 6'' swim whizz is 7'' so your not stuck with one size of say... a super shad rap vs a #10 rap. not such a big difference. start with the ones above in other posts these and then get a bigger box and enjoy more and more. IMHO every lure ever made is a must have. i just wish i could get my wallet to realize it too. good luck.

    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.  
    • Thanks to everyone who replied. Lots of good advice. I'll start with an electrician and go from there.
    • Is there some type of frame or carriage that bolt to machine?  Or do the extra wheels just "float" back there?
    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.
