Lake Trout Jig/Spoon mold???

3 posts in this topic

(I posted this in Trout fishing as well):


So I was up in Canada and Lake Trout fishing for really the first time. We did pretty well with 1 oz jig heads with big sucker minnows and stinger hooks - in about 50 feet of water.

I talked to a guy who showed me a lure he says works well. The only problem is that you have to buy the mold and make it yourself.

It was a large lead flat-oval shaped thing with a trebble hook off the bottom. It was about almost 1.5" wide, at least 2" long, and close to .5" thick. His were painted white with silver flecks. He said you tip it with a big minnow head, drop it to the bottom, give three huge jigs and then start cranking up.

I think he said the mold came from a company in Texas (but I'm not sure).

Anyone know what this is?

Here is a nice 30" I caught with just a jig and sucker minnow:

Mskyfshntchr -

Sorry I haven't emailed yet.

Back over in the Trout topic some guys mentioned Slab Spoons and I found these at TNT tackle:

I still haven't found exactly what this guy had but these are so close that I will probably stock up on a few - maybe even try some ice-fishing.

    • If ya'll did what you were supposed to and was collecting concurrent pensions from the state,county, city and township and toss in a pipe fitter pen for honesty, this would be a non issue here. Dummies.     #windycityway
    • You know I'm kidding!
    • It really doesn't matter if Trump fails to concede, his party, that's already deserting, will do it for him. 
    • Let's keep one thing in mind if we want to revisit the FL vote recount:  Mr. Gore did not start whining and crying rigged and fraud two months before the actual election. If was only after it appeared the count was incorrect that Gore and his party asked for a recount. And as I recall it was Gore himself who finally said "okay, enough is enough, end it." There is little doubt in my mind the final count in this years presidential election is going to be so lopsided in favor of Mrs. Clinton there will be no legitimate reason for a recount.  
    • What was the popular vote? What was the Electoral vote? Why did they want the recount in Florida?   Wouldn't  you also want that recount from the State that cost you the Election with many votes being questioned? (CHADS) What was the difference in Florida in popular vote?   When everything was decided in the correct way Gore did accept and said so.
    • Uh, from the taxpayers of various types of course.  Or was that some sort of rhetorical question for effect?  
    • Y'all do recall al gore  and his reaction to being defeated.  He refused to concede for weeks after the election.  Wanted to keep counting and recounting until he won.    And the Democrat party refused to accept the results for years... 
    • From the middle and upper middle income people!
    • $5 says the election won't even be close enough to demand a recount and the crybaby whining will be unprecedented.
