Master Bait'r

Recommended Posts

so i’m keeping things very basic this year.  only real things on my shopping list are lipless cranks and deeper +1 and +2  jerk baits.  i’ve got twins on the way so i don’t really know how much fishing i’ll be doing past june.  

 

plan building one bass spining rod and walleye vertical jigging rod which, i already have reels for. 

 

these all came from walmart In St.johns.  that OG6 is a replacement for one i lost on the titabawassee last year.  

 

bottom to top

 

googan lipless 1/2 oz 

rat l trap  1/2 oz 

shad rap rs-7 in perch 

shallow shad rap -7 in perch 

og-6 in silver black back. 

 

i’ve got some lucky craft 3/4 lvo’s on thier way which i win on ebay.

Guess I didn't even realize is was a jerkbait.  I thought it was a crankbait based on the shape and size of the front lip.

 

Either way, it will definitely at least get tried next spring.

i used to catch a lot of fish using jerk baits as cranks baits.  when I am small stream trout and smallie fishing that is how i still fish the smaller rapala’s like f5-7 and the j-7 jointed rapala’s.

Been a couple years since I added a new setup. Finally pulled the trigger on a dedicated "cold water" setup for jerkbaits mostly.

I took this masterpiece (Conquest 101 and a Megabass P5 Z-Crank) out for its first run and it was a blast.  My wife confiscated this set up for Christmas and I've been wanting to fish it for quite some time.  I tried a jerkbait, a shallow crankbait and a topwater popper at my local pond.  I caught one on each. 

 

This one has that magical feel to it. The reel is amazing but the rod is perfect for 110s and 110jr's.

Oh geez! I didn't really need another bait caster but when I saw this Daiwa Coastal I just had to get it. I didn't know it existed. I have a few Tatulas and a Zillion already. My wife saw this and I had to get her one as well. Lord, stop me before I buy again!

The main differences between the Coastal SV TW (there's also a Coastal 80) and the Tat SV TW is it's larger handle (100 mm vs 90 mm) and deeper spool. And color, obviously. Where you getting your Coastal's from?

I miss Farley as well.  I guess departing with cocaine and prostitutes isn't a bad way to go :unibrow:

@NorthernBasser I have feeling you have a whole library of comebacks for your wife when it comes to tackle purchases.

I'm not married, which explains why I can make so many irresponsible purchases. Also explains why I probably won't retire as soon as I'd like when the time comes. 😅🤦‍♂️

Apologies for my assumption. Not sure if I should offer congratulations 🤣. Not married here either, and fine with that - more time for chasing the green variety of fat bottomed gals. Much fewer headaches but not sure which is worse on the wallet.

Also explains why you have an entire SHED full of tackle.  The rest of us sleep in the doghouse when we upset our wives and you get to sleep in your shed because you want to. :respect-059:

here is a major score from my favorite ebay vendor from alabama.  4 lucky craft LVO’s 3/4 oz ( 2 gold & 2 striped gill).  bottom 3 right side 3 magic-man 75 3/4oz in louisiana frog cakes.  and 3 magic man 65’s 1/2 oz in chicken of the sea.  got it all for $70 shipped. 

 

that translucent gill color should be killer early spring with a lot of the clear lakes that i fish.  I always like throwing gold on cloudy days 

 

 

First impressions of the 13 magic man lipless cranks is very favorable.  these are well well made.  I like the color line up that 13 has.  havnt fished them yet though.  i think im set on 3/4 oz lipless baits but, i could buy more of those 1/2 oz.  I could see me buying a few more 1/2 oz rattle traps as well. 

 

lousiana frog color could be a bunch of different bait fish up here. chicken of the sea, i don’t like super bright chartreuse baits.  i like the chartreuse to be more subdued.  best time to throw chartreuse is the last hour-half before the sun goes down.
