I bought a dozen of the glow ones. The fish like them, my sons like them, my brother-in-law likes them. A dozen doen't go very far in that situation. I changed out the hooks to Mustad Triplegrip trebles. I was told this might retard the lure's action. If it does, no one bothered to tell the fish.

Take a look at the Glow Devils too. For some reason, I seamed to have better results with them. Those Red Lake Crappies absolutely loved the glow red one, not to mention those darn walleyes up there too.

You can order them and the Go Devils right here from FM. It is good to hear all the positive reports on this product.

I like the glow devils with a small whole minnow as a search lure. If I am seeing fish come up and no takers, then I switch to the jr's with a head. Either one is one heck of a good lure.

For perch and crappies I like to use 1/16 or 1/8 oz spoons, tipped with maggots or a minnow head. For walleyes I'll use either a 1/8 or 1/4 oz spoon, tipped with a minnow head or whole minnow. Glow red is a hot color, I caught a majority of my crappies last winter on glow red.

If I had to choose one size I would pick 1/8 oz, it can be used for a variety of species and for a variety of situations.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

The Angel Eye Jr. only comes in one size/weight. However the Go Devils come in sizes 1/4,1/8 and 1/16th oz. For the panfish and perch most people like to use the 1/16th or the 1/8th oz. For your walleye fishing I would recommend the 1/4th oz sizes.
As for colors, it all depends on the lake you are fishing. My number one choice to start with is always the Glow Perch.

Good Luck and keep in mind ice is coming soon!!

Does anyone know if the ANGLE EYE JRS can be purchased on the retail market, Cabela's?, Gander Mtn?

I've never seen them available at Gander, Cabela's or anywhere around the metro area. They are available in a number of bait shops up north. I can think of a bunch right now located around Lake of the Woods and Upper Red. I beleive Scenic Tackle is located in the Bemidji area.

I do know you can save a bundle and purchase them at:

TackleCity.com

There are a lot of good deals on a number of high quality ice fishing items like Custom Jigs and Spins Demons or bad Dog lures, even Jig-a-Whoppers.

Remember Islander Lures? Well they are back in an environmentally friendly lead free weight that weighs in at 98% of the weight of lead with improved hooks and much improved paint.

DeLong Lures and Phelps are couple others that may be available there soon.

TackleCity.com - CLICK HERE

Oh yeah, prices were negotiated to save YOU money getting your high quality, fish catching, ice fishig tackle this year. cool.gif

What's everyones favorite colors? I usually find myself using gold or the all glow AE jr's.

How about the original Angel Eye Sr's - anyone use those? They can be walleye killers and I have had a lot of sucess pumping them for pike.

The Angel Eye Minnow (Sr.) has became the go to lure for several of the guides up in the Lake of the Woods area. Most are using the hammered gold or the Neon Red tipped with a minnow head.

My favorite colors on LOTW are the gold and that deadly Perch one....I love those things! I paint a little pink or orange along 1 edge of the convex side on the gold ones as well, they like that!

Thanks for posting that link rick. Looks like some good deals on there. Buying tackle in those big packs is kind of like ripping off a band aid, you get the pain over with in one quick shot and then move on to the fun stuff. Now if i can only get a little more student loan money.... rolleyes.gif

If true, that is a good deal. I'd get them while you can if I were you guys smile.gif

We did Check L&M Fleet Farm and the price is $2.99 and Mills Fleet Farm (if you can find them) has them at $2.99 as well. Of course some stores don't have them and may not get them in. Some specials may be had...

However, even if the price you give is true, they are less than that at TackleCity.com (if you consider the convenience of the shipping and handling as compared to gas, wading through crowds and checkout counters and vehicle mileage and your time as a wash?).

Ive seen Jb Lures also sells Angel Eyes in 8 colors too. The gold, Neon Red, Neon Yellow, Neon Blue, Pink glow, Perch, chart green, and chart orange. I think they get them from Scenic tackle. You can find them at Fleet Farm, Gander Mountain, Walmart and other stores.

I've got the same gift card burning a hole in my pocket, they can't get there icefishing gear out fast enough!

To answer your question- NO. They might have some of the JB Lures Angel Eyes, but I was down at the Owatonna store last night picking up a deer stand and I didn't see any. I know they don't have the Scenic Tackle ones.

They also don't have the Rapala Jigging Shad Raps in yet.

On a side note- those Blue Catfish they have in the aquarium are HUGE!! blush.gif

    • Have you changed anything from your first attempt on venison bacon
    • A pic of the creek where we hunt, my deer, son in laws deer. Blended all 3 to 1. Ended up kinda neat for us. 
    • I have used a Toro single stage for about 10 years now. I was very skeptical until I helped a friend with snow removal. I won't ever go back to a 2 stage. Mine is a 2 stroke but I've seen the 4 stroke Toros in action and they seem just as good. There have been a couple times of heavy snow fall where I had to do the driveway in the middle of a storm and again at the end and also times of breaking up the plow ridge at the end but the pros far outweigh the cons. I like that it folds up like a lawnmower. When I get the mower out in the spring the blower goes under the shelf. No more big bulky blower in the way all the time and the rubber paddles clean right down to the cement. It's light enough to throw in the pickup and if you lift on the handles it'll propel itself if the snow isn't super deep. Go for the single. You won't regret it. 
    • The best snow thrower I’ve used is the one that uses your arms and a shovel😂 No blower or plow for me I can have the driveway done in the same amount of time if not a hair faster than a blower and, we’ve got a pretty decent sized driveway to, We get a good pile at the end from the grader that plows the township roads. I have wanted to mount a plow on one of the wheelers to plow the road as our township is extremely cheap and there must be Minimum 3-4 inches to plow. Anyway single stages are better for smaller drive ways and less snow. Personally I’d never by a single stage as you get a decent snow load and it may get frustrating or that pile at the end from the plow. But being you have a 2 stage as well it shouldn’t be an issue. Finding a good heavy duty rig with a good engine is key. Toro makes a good blower as well as huqvarna IMO. Im not sure if  huqvarna evenmakes smaller blower though.
    • I wouldn't get the Honda 4-Cycle Single Stage.  We have one at work and they are gutless wonders.  We also have the Toro 2 cycle single stage and that has a lot more balls!  IMO.  😉
    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
