Whats going to be the hot bait for 2004?

Recommended Posts

What is going to be the hot bait for 2004? I think the new Grappler Shads from Cotton Cordell are looking sweet. They seem to be pumping them pretty hard in their advertising. Or how about Lindy's Max Gap Jig heads with bleeding hooks and Tequni-Glow, they look deadly. The fish don't have a chance. My tackle order is coming tomorrow, should be fun to see all the new baits.

Yepper, I'm gonna snag a few dozen of those Lindy jigs you mention, they look great and openwater on the Rainy is right around the corner for me to give them a shakedown. My special hand tied spinner rigs will be the #1 producer of Walleyes for me again this year on LOTW though!

My hot bait this spring I am sure will be Ring-n-Grubs pitched to those shallow water eyes or jigged along current breaks.Last fall these plastics out produced any other plastic bait for walleyes for me.They also took quite a few smallies.

These are not really "new", but the Original line from Storm will be big this year. All made from the original molds with original colors...The thunderstics ahve one-piece molding as does the wiggle wart. The hot-n-tot even has a metal lip again!

Other new products besides those already mentioned are the Boo-Yah line of spinnerbaits, Calcutta Lures which are another line of plastic swim-baits, and Storm has some new swim-baits as well.

Come on open water!!!

It'll be the Johnny Craw jig of course. Hand tied by yours truely. Works well on monster smallies, slab crappies and trophy stream trout. Never need to tip 'em. Just cast 'em out and swim 'em back.

Another vote here for Ring-n-Grubs. I havn't tried em yet, but I think like a fish and know they will be my go-to lure this year!

I like the 1.5 inch Kick-n-Craw, they are going to be great for crappies and gills in the spring! And the 3 and 4.5 inchers are going to be hot for smallies and buckmouths as well smile.gif

And then you can't go wrong with the Rattlin Rap for several species.

Good Fishin,

Those Grappler Shads are great. I used them last year, and had excellent luck. They run true out of the box, can get down to 16' trolled, and can take a pretty good beating. They expanded the color line to 24 colors this year. Can't beat the proce of these babies either... $3.99.

I think the glass raps will be pretty popular this summer as well.

Kick N Craws and All Terrain Tubes. Unless Corey Guttenfelder starts selling his panfish jigs and maribou's.

I think my hot bait this year will be night-crawlers and minnows, like it is every year. These two choices are just as effective as any fancy new "lure," if not more so. "When in doubt, pull a crawler out!"

I am thrilled with Bio-Bait!
It just rocks... and will be big for tipping plastics.
I think it is very handy.

New from Scenic Tackle this year will be a new bass spinnerbait called the angel eye spinnerbait, heavier than average wire plus custom skirts and the usual awesome scenic tackle paint should make this one hard to beat. Also from the scenic tackle lineup is the new rock-n-roll jigs and theres a hint of a new line of jigging blades, those I know are going to be hot for the river jiggers amongst us, Maybe Jeff could expand on this a bit??

    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
