Hello, my name is waterfowler, I’m a tackle junkie. OK guys, I haven’t had the itch to hit the ice until last night. Went to Gander and spent a better share of my xmas present on several new lures. Wondering what your opinions are of this tackle?? I’m a sucker for just about anything new that I don’t have in the box.
I picked up several of the Salmo Chubby darters, at that price they better catch fish. If you’re not familiar with them, they are similar to the Normark jigging rap. Not sure what action this lure will have since it doesn’t have any “lips”. Does anyone have any personal experience?? I really like the paint job Salmo does.
I bought a bunch of the Lindy Techni glow jigs in the Genz worm, pounder and the new tear drop shaped one. I also bought the Tazer for lighting these jigs. I messed around with them in a dark room and was fairly impressed with the the glow.
Of course I picked up some more swedish pimples(best ice lure ever made). I also picked up several of the Northland buckshot rattle spoons. I’ve read several articles that brag these up, but these are my first. What’s your experience with these?? I think, they will be the hot ticket on days when you need to pull the fish in from a distance. I can’t wait to try them on the sumo perch on Mille Lacs.
I also picked up a couple packages of the ice buster bobbers. This will be my first year with these also, but I’ve heard nothing but good comments on this simple yet effective little invention.
Along with one of the new Plano waterproof boxes, I’ve got a pretty decen array of stuff to try out. Now I’m ready to gas up the auger, buy the shack license and hit the ice. What am I missing??
