I just got a sweet thing plus from thorne bros w/ the spring bobber & love it!! One question however, anybody know if the spring with the yellow tip is the smallest they sell? I was using a very small (#16) diamond jig last night & there wasnt enough weight to watch the spring release upward when those fussy crappies suck the jig in... DO I have the most sensetive thorne bros spring?? Appreciate any feedback...

You'll love that rod(well I guess it sounds like you already do). I've caught everything for 6" sunnies to 38" pike on mine. Although I just can't recall what color the spring bobber is on that rod.

I believe that is the smallest they sell. They do have another spring bobber but I believe it is for larger jigs and it is read instead of yellow. That is a great set up. My favorite for pannies.

Yep, the yellow tip is the Panfish Spring, which is the smallest Thorne Bros makes. There is also a Perch Spring which is orange and is designed for slightly larger presentations.

You could add a shot to your presentation, but you might loose some action on the jig.

The Thorne Bros spring bobbers are designed to allow the angler to still effectively jig without loosing control, yet also acts as a strike indicator. You can still pound a jig without having it jump all over the place.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
