Lindy Little Joe

7 posts in this topic

Lindy-Little Joe has proven time and again that its live bait rigs and lures are truly deserving of the title “Legendary” and its lineup of ice tackle is no exception. From proven jigs like the Genz Bug and Frostee to the innovative products like the Rattl’n Flyer Spoon, look to Lindy to cover your hard-water needs.

This year sees an exciting addition to the already deadly line of Rattl’n Flyer Spoons. They are now available in a 1/16 oz. size – small enough to catch bluegills and perfect for finicky walleye! The unique action of this lure allows you to “cast” under the ice as it glides away from the hole, returning to a vertical position when jigged. In essence, it allows you fish an area much larger than what could be accomplished with other lures. Just pound the bottom a few times, reel up, and repeat – but be sure to hold on, with a built-in brass rattle and irresistible flutter the fish can’t resist! Tip it with a minnow head, waxies or spikes and you’ve got a deadly combination for all species of fish.

While jigging the new Rattl’n Flyer with one rod, it is always a good idea to rig another rod with a Thill Gold Medal float and live bait. This combination allows you to effectively fish with two different tactics from virtually the same location. Apart from being the most sensitive floats on the market, the Thill Gold Medal Supreme floats have a unique feature which allows the angler to use them as a fixed float, slip float, or even remove them to fish no float at all! Mini Shy Bites and Mini-Stealth floats are perfectly designed fixed floats for the dedicated Panfish angler and Ice ‘N Fly floats, which can be used as fixed or slips, are ideal for use with tip-ups or for “dead sticking.”

Techni-Glo is yet another legendary concept created by Lindy. It was the pioneer for super bright, long-lasting glow in dark lures. Glow red, blue, green, and chartreuse are the four primary colors of Techni-Glo that have been widely received by successful ice fishing enthusiasts. Glow lures are important because of the low light conditions which confront every ice angler with the need to attract fish from long distances, and Techni-Glo rises to the challenge with not only an ultra-bright glow, but one that is the actual color of the lure. This allows for a fine-tuned approach in living color! Also check out the Techni-Glo tazer, a product guaranteed to super-charge your glowing arsenal.

For a full list of available products in the Lindy ice lineup, be sure to check out lindylittlejoe.com for details and useful tips from Dave Genz, Ted Takasaki and other experts in the field. Take Lindy fishing, you won’t regret it!

These things ae making a huge difference on Upper Red right now. With this years super dirty water the flutter and rattle all presented with some wicked glo power is triggering walleye like no other right now. It is not very often I sway from my old stand by jigs but this is one new lure I an very happy to have tied on right now.

Great write up, Harvey! The ONLY problem with Lindy tackle is deciding which one to use! Genz Bugs, Worms, Fat Boys... and especially now the Rattl'n Flyer Spoons. Awesome innovations by Lindy!

I've been using the Rattlin Flyer Spoons/deadstick combo lately for perch and it's been pretty darn deadly.

The water here is pretty muddy still, the comob glow rattle of the Flyer spoon is awesome.

Tipped with maggots or a minnow head has worked best for me.

I love the Lindy Line! I landed my first LOTW wall hanger last March on while jigging a Gold Rattl'n Flyer trying to entice her to bite when BLOOP my dead stick was the ticket.... Guess what! The Lindy Red Glow Genz Worm was the winner!!!!! I love the action of the Flyers and get great glow options with the Genz worm, Frosties too on the dead stick. Lindy's in my box every time and usually on the line!

Thanks for this baby Lindy!!!

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
