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.

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 use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
