Best must have Ice lures

Recommended Posts

Any lures you can't do without? Mine has to be orange Forage Minnows, slender spoons, a couple Marmooska's, some chub-head or Diamond drops, and always a gold and silver Swedish Pimple......:)

Glo Devils and Swedish Pimples are my go to for eyes.

If I put 2nd line down in the house,  Ice Buster bobber with bare hook and minnow.  Or and this will sound odd but a Angel Eye with a minnow hooked through the dorsal fin.  Either on bobbers or tipup.

I forgot...I also like the little new rattle spoons too. Forgot about the doodle bug...anyone have luck with the puppet minnows? I haven't...just don't care for them, I guess.

I'm pretty simple.  In the last 5 years 95% of my walleyes and perch have been caught on either a plain red hook and shiner minnow under a bobber, or a spoon of some sort, usually a glow red Kastmaster, or glow green Buckshot/Forage Minnow.  The other 5% either a perch colored jigging rap, or perch colored chubby darter.  

 

All these new lures are made for catching fishermen, not fish.

welcome fishhook34 to FM !

 

plain red hook has been best for me also when I do go after eyes.  always seems to outperform different jigs.  but i just gotta jig ! :)  LOW or Winny mainly when I go.  Might hit red next week.

How you work it is- the deal-other stuff like line, knot, bobber, bait-action matching mood-all assuming you are on them is the first place. Small buckshot usually works for me. The 'Godfather' himself told me personally that jig type does not make much of a difference. At the time he did not have a contract with a manufacterer and probably was still under a "no compete"-Now he says certain jigs do make a difference-so was he biased then or now? Great to talk with him though-he was very nice.

Clam Drop Kick jig with a Maki plastic on it. Despite their absurd price, they're the best jig for mounting medium to large plastics. Because of the position of their line-tie, they hang straight horizontal and have a nice wobble to them when shook gently. It's really the only jig on the market that really stands out to me.

 

Ultra Light Rippin' Rap (#4) is really starting to grow on me, as well. 

 

#8 chartreuse Gamakatsu hanging 4" under a tiny split shot and packed with 4 spikes is another winner, and it can be jigged lightly to make those maggots dance. I don't carry bobbers.

Go Devils, fastest, most effective search lure for active walleyes and crappie on the planet. :)

    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
    • juicy or freeze dried?
    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite. 
    • Nothing better then homemade pickles. We did 84 quarts last year but the kids didn't eat all of them so we are going to skip a year.
