Anyone lose a topwater lure on Orchard Lake?

11 posts in this topic

I was on Orchard in Lakeville going for some tigers this weekend and set the hook on what turned out to be a topwater lure with a leader and about 10 yards of green Power Pro. If your missing one let me know! I know what it's like to lose a god bait so I'd be happy to give it to it's owner. Just let me know what it is and where you lost it. You can email me at mmwaschek@charter.net

Not as good as you, that's for sure!

I had a few follows but nothing in the boat. I switched to bass out of frustration and had a blast in the lilly pads with scum frogs.

No Problem. Every kind act creates another. Sooooo, if I can find the owner of this lure, I'm hoping that someone can get me back the upper 40" musky that I lost on Vermillion grin

Thats too bad. I wasnt really expecting to catch anything when i went out, but then again isnt that when you usually catch em'. Im want to try to get out there one of these upcoming weekends. For a small lake once the sun comes up it sure gets busy fast.

Bonefish,

That's funny, I bet it's one of 3 my nephew lost fishing with my buddy. I told a co-worker about their trip and he said I should check out the forum.

I'm not sure what one you found but my nephew told me he lost a black topwater with a prop up front as one of the three!! If that's it, my buddy called it his hot bait!!

Keep it!! I'll rub it in when I see him tonight!!

Ok I haven't seen the term "Scum Frog" before. What fish does that pertain to?

Thanks

Hey midex,

Scum Frogs are a soft plastic bass topwater lure. Weedless, and fun to fish with. You work them in and around the heavy cover, sometimes the thickest you can find.

Fun way to fish for sure!

Cjac is right. They are totaly weedless. I throw them into the middle of a lilly pads patch with no problem. It just skims across the tops becasue the hooks are actually on teh top of it. Crank accross the weeds and stop when you his a patch of open water, give it a few twitches, and hang on! I love hooking one on for my 6 year old. No snags and alot of topwater excitement.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
