Favorite Bait for Marina Docks/Sailboats

6 posts in this topic

Was curious what you would choose to throw at the Marina Docks/Sailboats here in the Metro area with 10-20 ft on the deeper edges? I usually stick with the bucktails and dawgs, but am thinking I should try counting down some phantoms, or other deeper baits. Just looking to try something new. What do you like to pull out of your box?

Was out last night and we got one small one on a black bucktail. Lost another on the same bucktail and had one take a swipe at a viper, but couldn't get it to take when it followed to the boat. The fish (All pretty small) didn't hit til late, when it started clouding over. All fish came from heavy weed cover (none by the boats...). Perfect weather for being out.

I've done well pitching the big soft plastics. It's just like bass fishing only with bigger baits.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
