Gliders for northern

11 posts in this topic

In the new In-fisherman, they go over the use of glide baits for northerns. Specifically, has anyone used the Salmo slider or fatso with any success? Interesting read for those of you who haven't read it yet, but something I'm looking forward to trying this summer. Thoughts?

I picked up a 6" Phantom with curly tail at Blue Ribbon Bait - for musky fishing. The sales guy said it catches a lot of Northern Pike.

If a Suick with a vertical motion drives the pike mad, then something with a side to side action can't do a whole lot worse.

Sliders catch pike as do wades wobblers. Hellhounds, Phantoms ect.

I had some decent luck with the sub-walk. However if I remember right it went deeper than I thought it would (wanted to use it over submerged weeds, didn't really work that way.

Come fall "glide baits" make up a huge part of my arsenal. Love them right down the weed edge.

I catch a few northerns on Phantoms but my big northerns consistantly come on Bitten Tackle Warlocks. They are my favorite glide bait.

I seem to catch the most northerns muskyfishing with a wabull perch pattern.

When using gliders how fast do you typically work the bait? Just curious what works for others.

How fast I work it depends on the conditions but I normally work them medium to fast I would guess.

I catch alot of Pike on hellhounds. A few summers ago I caught 3 different Pike on 3 straight cast while using a hellhound.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
