6 posts in this topic

Whats your favorite fall lures? Do most people start chucking big jerkbaits? Spinnerbaits?

I know a lot of guys on Mille Lacs in the fall really like twitching the large cranks over rocks while trying to make frequent contact with the rocks. Big Rubber and jerk-baits the same way I would imagine.

I would try that for sure.

Hiya -

For plugs and such, I like big, flat-sided crankbaits like Jakes fished as a jerkbait (fill one with oil to make it neutrally buoyant sometime - really a great cold water bait), and jerkbaits like Bobbie Baits, Magic Makers and Burts, or weighted suicks. Also really getting to like big soft plastics like Red October tubes in cold water, or jigs like the Bait Rigs Cobra.

Day in and day out though, I could live with single spin spinnerbaits most of the fall. I put on a big old M&G Lunker single spin about 3 weeks ago and haven't taken it off since. Hard to go wrong with them...

Cheers,

Rob -

Without sounding too dumb, do you just drill a little hole and put in veggie or olive oil and silicone it up?

Thanks - Erik

Pounders all day long. They stay on my line 75% of the time and really trigger the bigger fish.

Erik -

Yep - pretty much all there is to it.

I drill two holes, one at the high point on the Jake's back to squirt the oil in (a syringe helps), and the other down a little bit to let air out. Test it in a sink and squirt in a few CCs of oil (any kind works really) at a time. I put oil in until the thing just barely floats. Then take some round toothpicks, cram them in the holes you drilled, and break them off flush with the bait body, clean any spilled oil off, and seal it up with 5-min epoxy. Epoxy works better than silicone. Silicone peels off over time.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
