Spring tackle roundup

Recommended Posts

Well another 95 days and we should be on soft water up here... That leaves me thinkin about the spring tackle run and the summers fishin..I need to update the jig box.. The one offered here at fishingminnesota.com by Scenic tackle is a dandy especially if you need jigs, the price is right and they are top quality jigs. A super box for the beginner to expert jig fisherperson. Other must haves for me this year is the book Precision Trolling, Man after using a buddies last season this is a real timesaver. I had to figure all that out on my own. Instead of taking a season to master a small handful of cranks, it just gives it to ya. not much thinking involved there! lol Cost of the book about 25$ the info within, priceless.. Rods and reels, hmm what way am I going to go there? Only need to replace one reel this season, possibly three new rods. All will be baitcasters, just seems easier for me. Other than tying up a ton of spinners looks like I'm in good shape! Until I start lookin again. Will it ever end??? lol Paul

No - because there will always be a new toy you will just have to have! You know what they say about a boy and his toys - or is it a fisherman and his toys? grin.gif

More like 65 days. I plan on hitting that soft water in April as soon as the lakes ice out grin.gif. I need to buy a few new rods and reels as I had several go out on me last seaon... my friend sat on one, the bail broke on another, and the seat screw cracked on my ultralight. And I need to re-stock on mono... all I have left on spools is 12, 14, 17, 4 and 20... does me litte good for the bass and eye rods.

Thats not to mention all the work I need to put into the boat for next season too... hmm..

Sure beats the heck out of work though!

Looking forward to "tackle" some fishing line decisions, rod storage issues and some boat maintenance jobs. I guess the darn job things helps pay for the important stuff.

Has anyone bought or used an ANTI BACKLASH BAITCASTING reels and how good are they. I have never used a bait caster before but i like how they look and the many good things people have to say about them but i dont want to deal with the backlash lol

Hi Paul!

I'm not a "tackle junkie" like I was years ago...simply the basics in basic colors for me now. It takes lots of convincing for any particular bait to make it's presence permanent in my modest box.

But - some of those new Storm plastics really look like winners. I picked up a combo kit of 5" & 6" WildEye Swim Shads the other day. These baby's are going to get a workout to see if they can "earn a spot". It appears to me to be an extremely practical and versatile bait since it can be worked both horizontally and vertically, along with trolling. An added bonus is that they will lay flat in the box and not take up much space.

Last year's "winner" was definitely a Reef Runner Little Ripper for open water trolling just before and after sundown. I'll be adding a few more of those in this year, also.

The hard part is to eject an old favorite from it's place, but then again, some always to make it back in.

In my humble opinion there is no such thing as an anti-backlash reel. At least I don't think any of them are fool proof. Abu Garcia came out with one a couple years ago and it flopped. Decent idea bad design. Anyways there is a lot of ways to reduce backlash. The most common one is practice. grin.gif Other than that lots of reels have weights inside on the spool to make the spool spin faster or slower. Depending on your likeing. Also the spool brake is helpful. Well I hope this helps ya out.

Thanks Chev Truck youre probably right practice makes perfect or so the saying goes. and about the storm lures i used them all this summer the wildeye they have a built in weight for long casting and i mean they get hit like nothing else ive seen they work really good i bought 20 bags of all kinds they have a small draw back. the eyes pop out pretty easy but thats expected when you have a northern biting on soft plastic lol but i just reuse the weight and hook on tubes adds extra weight this is the way to go they are cheap also.

I'm an amautuer when it comes to baitcasters, as I only own one. The Ambasudeur I have doesn't backlash that often on me. I have less backlashes than I do birdsnests on any of my spinning gear. It's a nice lil reel. If I get another baitcaster combo it's gotta be an Abu wink.gif

    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
