  1. You were probably looking at a Castaic Swim Bait or something similar. Bunch of companies out there now making this type of bait. Started out in California for BIG bass fishermen, but they realized there is a market for these baits among musky fishermen also.
  2. The Weagle is not an easy bait to work. Rod, line, and leader are very important with this lure. I use my 7'6 MH Premier with a solid steel leader. Work it slow with alot of slack.
  3. I only fish tipups for pike... The hook depends on the bait I am using. Dead bait I go with a quick strike, this is mainly just to keep the bait in the right position in the water. Live bait I use a single treble in the back near the dorsal fin. No need to wait on the fish at all with either of these rigs.
  4. I usually just bite the tails off the suckers. They struggle more without much movement. I have also rigged a couple tipups with offshore releases for those really big minnows. Just drill a hole in the tipup and use some leader wire to attach an offshore release. Clip the line in there and you are all set.
  5. got a bullhead in my fish tank at home. bought him at a pet store. Not too sound ignorant, but what is the rule on bull heads for bait in MN? I think muskies may like em too...
  6. Topraider or Super Topraider? Get one of each...they both shine at different times.
  7. Got a 50 gallon tub in the garage for keeping minnows. A couple aerators for oxygen and small aquarium heater to keep the ice off, and you are all set. These minnows also serve as food for my aquarium fish so I have a bunch at a time.
  8. I like Mepps and Blue Fox for this, but I mostly make my own when I cant find what I want. Shoot me an email and maybe I can whip you something up...
  9. I tried them on my pike tipups last year and was not satisfied with the results. I had a couple gut hooked fish and then I gave up. I will no longer fish with any hook that has to be swallowed to be effective. Stick with a single treble for livebait and a quick strike rig for dead bait. If fished correctly there is virtually no chance for either of these to gut hook a fish.
  10. I like 'em. I raised alot of fish this year when nothing else would get them going. They are fairly bouyant so you can work them nice and slow. Give them a shot, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Big pike like 'em too.
