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.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?

    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
