Heading up there for college guys, so space is limited. 10-15 lures, what would you bring?

Easy: two bucktails, two super topraiders, two straight shallowraiders with two jointed, two straight depthraiders with two jointed, Two bigfoot depthraiders and two bigfoot shallowraiders. You could follow the same theory with any brand(s) of baits you like, but this will let you fish different structure and water types all year long with a minimal amount of tackle. This is a couple of baits over your 15 bait limit, but I had to throw in the bigfoots for chasing the October beasties. If you fish a lot of heavy weeds, I'd throw in a couple safety pin spinners as well. cool

If your only going to have a couple of colors, I'd go with one natural pattern like perch or cisco. Look on the DNR servey to find out what the predomanant forage is and then my advice would be to go with that color. Then one for darker conditions(dirty water, cloud cover etc.) Something like a white/orange combo, chartruese, Firetiger or the like. I use the same method as above for my own musky box, except instead of two colors it's more like five or six and with a few different manufacturers baits. Start small and gradually work your way up as you feel you need to.

Suicks, Rad Dogs spinnerbaits, and Northland muskie-bucktail spinnerbait are also great. There are many great reed-filled spots that these bait will produce fish in. Enjoy your time up there, it's one of the greatest places on earth!

Suicks........I totally forgot about jerkbaits. Musky fishing is such a dangerously expensive game. laugh

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
