Glow Red Chubby Darter #3?????

8 posts in this topic

So last year at the Ice Show in St. Paul I bought a few Chubby Darter #3s.......And they POUNDED walleyes for me. I had the best luck with a glow red one....and now I can't seem to find a glow red one anywhere! Not even on Salmo's HSOforum. Anyone know where I can get my hands on some of these???? Thanks!

We have several of them at Thorne Bros... it's a custom color that's only available to certain stores that deal with certain distributors.

Give us a ring at Thorne Bros and we'll order a few up for you... 763-572-3782.

Or else stop in at the store, we have them on the shelf smile

Ya like my Limited Edition GM Luminescent Blue Dace Eh? That was a custom I designed especially for Gander Mountain last year. Gander Mountain will have it again this season.

It is a lethal Salmo Chubby Darter color pattern from the tiny #3, #4, or the #5. I caught several giant eyes on the #5 LBD last season, 2 over 13, 1 over 14 in fact.

I like the new Red Rock Rainbow Dace pattern, a well done pattern too by the way guys. I'll have to be sure to order some direct from them and stock up.

The Rainbow Dace pattern is a new one this year.I have not tried it yet but did get mine from Red Rock yesterday and they sure look like they will work great.Ed I have got some of the Blue Dace pattern but I got them for Laker fishing but I will have to give them a try for the walleyes.

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
