They are a plastic bait sold mostly in the baxter/brainerd area from what I've seen. Put them on a small jighead and off you go.

I picked some up at fleet farm in Brained the other day, sportland bait in Nisswa always seems to have the best selection of them, if your up that way!

Spearing Machine, they're a fantastic little plastic... You can get them in quite a few places, but the people above are correct, the Brainerd area is flooded with the best selection. You can get them from tiny bluegill size all the way up to a walleye killer size. Huge selections of colors. One of the best things to hit the fishing market... They've changed ownership a few times over the years, but you can still hunt them down online if you search your butt off.

funny I have a bunch of those but it has been a couple years since I put one on cause it seemed that they were sold in Brainerd and they worked in Brainerd area lakes......even though I fish up there I tend to use other plastics....maybe it is time to slip one on a jig again!!!

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
