New Lures for 2004

Recommended Posts

I have a question on some of the new lures out this year and if they have been productive.

Has anyone tried out the new Buckshot Dropper Spoon? I think this looks pretty deadly especially with the dropper for thos finicky perch?

Also anyone heard much ab out the Jiggle Bug or Doodle Bug??

The last thing that really intrigues me is the new Techni Glo Tails? They seem like they have some merit, but part of me thinks that sometimes a fisherman can go overboard and make their presentation to fancy. After all simple usually seems to out produce fancy? If these things are good, what types of lures do these tails work best on??

Every year it seems like something new and innovative comes out onto the market. Is it a gimmick or will it really work?? That is the million dollar question. Hopefully a fisherman doesn't spend that much on this new stuff. I just thought I would ask for some info or advice before I went out and spent $ on this new stuff. I guess everthing is designed to work.

May you drill your holes straight and your bobbers stay under!

I have had good luck with the new Northland Airplane jig. Looks like a jigging rap but more holagraphic paint job. Also like my new Quickset ice house. Fast and easy to set up and bulletproof!

Pretty hard to make a call this early in the season. But, I really like Custom Jigs and Spins Nuclear Powered Ants. Not just because I like ant-style baits for panfish, but I like the idea of mixing the skirt colors with the body colors. The skirts on the Nuke Ants are swappable.


I don't think this sets the world on fire, but it does give you an option that you don't typically enjoy with winter baits. Kind of like summertime where a lot of us build our own spinnerbaits, pick a skirt, pick a blade. Options are good, at least for me.

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
