lazy ike

5 posts in this topic

Today I was fishing in north geogia when I happened upon a lure in the water. After a short search on google I found it to be a lazy ike in fire tiger pattern. Seeing as they have been around for ages, I figured a few of you guys have used these lures. Do you have any tips, advice, or plain stories about the lazy ike or the mighty ike? Should I troll it, cast it, or just admire its unique design? Thanks in advance

You have a battle tested and proven lure. Having used them since I ws a kid (a long long time ago) they still produce. You will see more usage of them in the North but that may be a good thing if the fish are not seeing them where you are. Fish it like and other crank bait. Try to fool a bass into thinking it is an injured minnow. Twitch, twitch, pause. The Fire Tiger color will normally be selected with stained or worse water as it will show up well. Try it above undewater grass and it should produce some Bass.

Good luck and keep us posted. 8-)

I still have a lazy ike in the redhead color. Used it a couple of times back in the day, but being from the detroit area, Helin's Flatfish (local mfr.) were the norm for that style of bait. Didn't like those either, but man did they have the paint jobs! I have a lot of cranks from the 60's &70's that i would love to use, but i get too many pike break-offs, so they just sit in boxes waiting for me to build my museum.....

I used these when I lived up north. The lazy ike in perch color was the best lure for big Northern Pike. you need heavy line and steel leader because of the teeth. The ike will catch bass but you have to keep the pike, pickeral or gar away first.

I used to use an orange Lazy Ike fished very slow like a wake bait.

it was deadly.  Lost it to a nice chunky pickeral,

Never replaced it because they changed the design.
