    Hali lures for Panfish?

    I just purchased my first one. I have not seen much discussion on this lure for fishing. Then also the chain hook ala carte purchase for other lure adaptations.??

    I "really hit the crappies"

    I left Richmond Lake last year of ice fishing. I was sure I had caught and Kept a total of nine bluegills and Crappies. I laid them on top of my portable and walk back to car about 100 yards and went home to clean fish. When I got to cleaning table only 8 fish to clean. I wondered if I had miscounted? Got back a day of two later and found that someone had left a nice nine inch bluegill on the Ice. I am about 100 % sure one of my bluegills jump out of my portable shed that night! Oops

    Shrimpo vs. Ratso

    I have only been using these two styles of lures for about a year and I have done way better on the Ratsos instead of the Shrimpos. Color of choice has been the pink headed Ratso with a replacement white body. I did have a good day with a Rat finkee too this winter.

    Fireline Crystal

    I started tieing the knot that shows up in the WEB site your bobbers down. Try tying the Wolfram Jigs with a loop knot. it is describe in the sight. I now tie all the little jigs with this knot. I am using two pounds test yet so I don't know for sure how this knot will respond with the 1 lb. test line. I am dreaming about moving to the one pound test line because of the ease and strength on this knot. I used to tie the palomar for my knots and have change to this knot instead. Have great weekend! Sounds like some ice weather is coming.

    Wax worms, mousies or Euro larvae?

    I fished New Years day with a buddy I socialized with until 2:00 am on 12/31/06. This was our 2nd annual New years day trip. We left town by 7:00 am. We had everthing along, W. Ws, Ms, E. Ls, and crappie minnows. The bait of the day however was mousies attached to a pink headed/white body custom ratso. We ended up with 3 - 9" inch perch and 3 - 9.5" inch Crappies. Plus a bunch of too small bluegills for harvest. Nice New Years day fishing trip. I stayed home the rest of they and ate and watched college bowl games.

    Wax worms, mousies or Euro larvae?

    I just learned another life ice fishing lesson. A person must keep their euros refrigerated or they will pupate. (sp) I did catch one nice crappie on the remainder of non pupated euros last night. Holes I on punched on Wednesday night were still open last night. (Friday) I was wishing you would of got some additional cold weather before our snow!

    What's workin' now...

    I must confess that I have switched to fishing for walleyes in this fall season. Casting jigs and minnows in and amoungst flooded timber. That has been working nicely!

    Fall Eyes and Jigs

    I had good luck tonight with a white and chartruese shad rap until a lost it on a submerged snag. I was casting in lanes on some flooded snags. I then had to switch to a shallow shad rap and again white and chartruese with a split shot above the invisaleader. Also had one nice Northern pike that I caught and released. Get ready for tommorow, a gusty Northwester is headed your way.
