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.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
    •   Too late. It's now undergoing the digestive process as I type   This is first rabbit dinner I've had since my early 20's and I'm going to be 57 this year. I shot them while grouse hunting this fall and winter but haven't specifically targeted them since I was much younger. I've never heard of anyone really going after them anymore
