Cold weather Lubricants

Recommended Posts

Ok, get your minds out of the gutter.

Does anyone use (or know of) a lubricant that I could use on the telescoping poles in my portable? The colder the weather the tougher they seem to extend and retract. Thanks in advance.

Deputy Welcome to the forum, this is really weird because I just heard this at the local bait shop this afternooon. 2 things bee's wax or powdered graphite shot up into poles. The older gentleman said stay away from liquid's they will always come back to haunt you. I would have to agree. I would go for the graphite the wax may build up.

I use spray silicon on my house. It works about as well any anything.
The main cause of sticking is bent and crushed poles though! Even a small dent really can cause a lot of grief.

Try "Tef-Lube" It's a teflon spray that's made by Remington.
Graphite works well also. .99 cents or so a tube @ menards!

Be carefull with the dry graphite because it can make a mess of your equipment. Very tough to get out of canvas and your clothes not to mention your hands when putting up or taking down. There are some comparable products out there that made of teflon and are clear, colorless, and odorless. You might have to do some looking but they are there.

Deputy Grizz's recommendation is a good one. The Remington teflon spray is the way to go, but spray it on a clean, dry pole. The graphite does work but as mentioned earlier--it's messy and dirty.

Parafin Wax, available at most grocery stores. Goes on dry, stays dry, won't attract dust and dirt. Used to use it on toolbox slides before ball bearings were around in toolboxes. I think it works great.

Try spraying a rag with WD 40 or even the Remington teflon spray then wiping the poles with the rag. This will prevent overspray from getting all over the fabric. Just make sure to apply to cleand dry poles.

    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
