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.

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
