Anyone ever have a bass or pike attack a bobber?

12 posts in this topic

I caught a 7# bass on a red & white Oreno. It had just hit the water, I didn't even get a chance to flip the bail on my reel yet. So, I was wondering if anyone has had a bass or a pike or anything attack a red & white bobber.

No....but one time, I was reeling in this little bass that interupted my walleye fishing, and a big northern just slammed it and then followed it all the way to the boat, taking free shots at it. I couldn't believe something would want to eat those stinky slimey things. It was aweasome

Big bass by the way

Twice hear. Both times I tried everything in the tackle box to try to catch them with no luck. Never had anything red and white though other than bobbers.

Enough times that I've that I've run the hook and slip bobber together - just hoping for another chance. wink

Nice fish. Bass-Oreno's are cool.

Up in Canada I had a pike strike my Gapen bobber about 3 times, once we actually had him on for 30 seconds before he/she let go of the bobber. Still has teeth marks in it, we did catch the pike, it was about 30".

52...Nice fish. I've had that happen alot of times...especially when I have been fishing a small bobber for panfish. Usually the pike cut me off and then I just go pick up the bobber...they hit it and spit it out, but 4# test doesn't hold up well to the wickedly sharp, triangular pike teeth. Must just make them mad?

For the record, the biggest LMbass I ever seen was caught on a red and white Bass-o-reno. This was years ago, on a little lake out toward Minnetonka somewhere? I was a 12 year old kid, couldn't remember the lake, but the guy that used to rent the rowboats was named Archie? The guy that caught the fish was my friends dad, Angel Relopez and he weighed it at Browns Market on Hy #55...and I remembered how much it weighed 9 pounds.

He had one mounted on his wall that was just as big, also taken on a Bass-o-reno. I'm not sure what the state record is, but in retrospect, I bet he had a couple of state records and never gave it a thought.

Congrats on the nice fish 52.

I have a couple of old oreno's that I inherited from my dad. Finally pulled them out of my tackle box to make room. May have to give it another try before I retire it.

    •     I have ordered a couple of time from them. They have some good panfish tackle. My order this time was $75 due to the fact that friends and family also wanted some jigs. When you out fish them 2 days in a row they take notice 
    • Like Papa Bear said, unless you have 14' sheets you will have more seams.  Not only will you have to deal with the vertical seams on the studs but you will also have to deal with the horizontal seams.  More seams = more money and more chance for a leak.  VHB tape is not cheap so the less you have to buy the better. 
    • 44 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY. One thing you always can count on here at Lake Iwanttobethere is that after a lousy day there will be a nice day. Warmer, party cloudy skies and it is warm where I sit at my desk here in the den. The brown dog is at my feet, his paws on my right foot keeping tabs on me. Yesterday was a rain day and normally I look forward to rain days as they give me time to catch up on indoor projects. Rain days in the dead of winter however do nothing more then create work. Ground is frozen so all we have is runoff which here in the cabin means a wet floor in the basement. Overnight the water freezes and now we quickly go through the ice melt trying to get rid of the ice so it is safe to walk on the sidewalks.   Ranger Rick is reporting that his trail system at Samantha Lake is a mess. The rain and warm weather has eaten away at his trails. The short cut across Samantha Lake is not recommend to use as their is water on the ice and getting on and off the lake is unsafe at best. No fishermen on the lake yesterday but then again it rained more then a half an inch. Big hockey game on tonight the Wild against the Black Hawks. We will see if putting the seventy inch TV in will draw a beer drinking crowd. I would love to be there but have been under the weather the past few days and will be watching from home.   I have gotten a few e-mail’s asking about Lake Iwanttobethere and it is a good time to be a little more clear about the Lake. The wife has never had her named mentioned in the eleven years I have been writing about the lake. She told me she did not want anyone to know her name so she is always refereed to as "The Wife" of my four kids only the boys names have been used as they own business in town, the daughters have never had their names mentioned except the one who paints is sometimes spoken about as at Christmas she paints store front windows. None of the eight grand kids names have been mentioned but they are often refereed to a granddaughter number two or grandson number three. The two ten year olds are spoken about often and are refereed to as "The Tenners"   Almost every one in town is based on someone I know. A few of them have passed on but I still write about them, kind of my tribute to them. I could still be writing about my old dogs Bud and Barney as they left me with a ton of stories untold but I shared my loss with you over them and have moved on. Now I leave it up to you how much the Lodge and Resort are. One of you called the Resort a bar and it is far more then that. The Lodge is a place for members to hang their hats. There are lockers in the basement for their stuff and a chair in the Main Room to sit and be left alone. Not everyone drinks, for example everyday Tom sits at the end of the bar with a cup of coffee every morning and does his crossword puzzle. I never mention him much because that is just what he does. The FELLOWS on the other hand seem to be doing something all the time that you may find interesting. The Resort is a place for the guys to get away from the Lodge if that makes any sense.   The Resort has become like our Lake Iwanttobethere old guys home. Marv, Elmer, DOC and Vic are the core and none of them are married and they are doing just fine thank you. Chuck, Hammering Hank, Skinny and I are the next wave, the in betweeners so to speak. Married but still looking for a hideaway. Where is Lake Iwanttobethere? I’ll save that for another day.
    • Season has been over for awhile but now I have a couple of Grouse who just strut in my back yard taunting me. Duncan has tried to put the fear into them but no matter how quick he is they are up in the trees before he can get halfway across the yard. He does come back with that stupid lab look on his face so I guess everyone is enjoying themselves here late in the winter. I hope to hear them drumming this spring.
    • cool!!  and thanks again for the info!!  i look forward to getting it.
    •  Used to, then he lost it to Vince and Nick Cage in a Segway race on Tropicana.
    • Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
    • Unless you have a source for 14' sheets you would end up with vertical and horizontal seams. No real problem with that, that I can think of.
