Favorite Beavers

Recommended Posts

I was using some SK Rodents last week with some success and was wondering what is everyone's favorite Beaver style baits to fish? Also how do you like to rig and fish them. Is it mostly an on the fall type presentation or do you like to work them along the bottom and thru cover like a plastic worm?

I pitch them a lot with a straight shank hook, Texas-rigged. Downside there is they tear up easy so I go through a lot of them. So I buy mine in 50 ct. bags from Christopherson Bait in Alexandria. (Find them on the Bay of E by searching Alexandria Bass and Muskie Tackle).

My other favorite is the Cheemo Lures Creature, which is made by a friend of mine in Walker. It kind of looks like a garden variety Beaver type bait until you look at the tail. It has this funky 3 dimensional spade tail that just makes it fall different. They're great on a jighead on weedlines, and for lord knows what reason, I catch a ton of walleyes on them besides. More than any other soft plastic I fish for bass, and I don't begin to have an explanation as to why. They're really a cool little creature bait. Plus the Minnesota Berry color rocks...

My favorite is the Missile Baits Dbomb. I rig it T-rig and also use it as a jig trailer a lot of the time. The baby dbomb is also a great bait on a finesse jig.

Those are all good baits, although my preference is the Dbomb because I'm going for bigger fish (big bait, big fish).  For what it's worth (literally):

Cheemo Lures Creature = $.42 each.  I'm going to pick up a few bags of these the next time I swing through Alexandria.

Sweet Beaver = $.48 each.

Baby Dbomb = $.57 each.

Kinky Beaver = $.67 each.  This one has the longer tentacles.

Dbomb = $.67 each.  This one is larger than the ones listed above.

DBombs are $.52/each if you buy the 25packs from Thorne Bros..... :)

I just ran over to Dick's at lunch and picked up a few more packs of Dbombs.  They had a "Buy one pack get 50% off the 2nd pack" deal which comes out to $.50 each.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
