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.

    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
