New Line of Ice fishing jigs

7 posts in this topic

Was at gander yesterday and saw the new northland plastics jigs and colors. Something new on the market worth looking at.

They were the scud bug, gill getter, mud bug, bro bug jig, bro's bloodworm jig, slug bug, mimic minnow fry and slurpies fry. You can look at them on their HSOforum as well. Geez Brosdahl with those and Frabill these year seems to be a busy man.

I picked up a few last weekend. I think the bloodworm and the gill getter look pretty good. I'll be giving them both a shot in a few weeks with 3+ inches of fresh ice under my feet.

They were also advertised in the in-fisherman ice issue. Never a shortage of jig options out there ... plastic options are growing.

Those look pretty cool, I wish they came in a little smaller sizes though. I like the option of going down to size 12-14 hooks and 1/100oz heads.

I totally agree. I always go with the smaller size (12-14) jigs for pannies.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
