    Fall/Winter Steelhead

    Thanks for the info!

    Fall/Winter Steelhead

    You're all set then!
  3. Hi all, I know the most popular way it seems for people to fish for steelhead is to run the float on either a centre-pin or spinning setup, but for me I would much rather swinging a spoon or spinner thru a boulder strewn tail-out and practically getting a rod ripped out of my hands.....something addicting about that! My spoons of choice are the Canadian made Len Thompsons (have not found a color that doesn't work), and as far as spinners go, I'd have to say it's the Bluefox Vibrax #3 or #4 depending on depth. Just curious if there are any fellow anglers who prefer this method of angling for steelhead compared to the traditional float method?

    Baitcaster for Steelhead

    Ok, thanks for the feedback guys! Distance is paramount on the rivers I fish North of Sault Ste Marie, so likely stick with the Daiwa Whisker Tournament SS 1300. Besides, a "good baitcaster" could set me back a good couple hundred dollars!
  5. Hi all, I was just curious if there were any anglers out there that use baitcasters instead of spinning reels to toss hardware for Steelhead or Salmon and obtain equal casting distance with both. Im not talking castingheavier baits, but rather in-line spinners down to 1/4oz (#3) I just figured that a baitcaster would solve the line-twist issues associated with spinning reels.

    Senko style baits for Brookies?

    Okay,thanks guys..yah, it wouldn't be my first choice either, but just figured sometimes something "off the wall" can work wonders!
  7. Hey, just curious if any fellow anglers have ever tried a smaller version of the senko style baits for Brookies? I hear surveys that have been done and revealed that trout do seem to readily eat these baits, so just figured that maybe a smaller version, like say 3" or so would be an effective bait?

    Husky Jerk Hog-Tie

    Thanks for the tips!......Yah, as mentioned by other anglers, this problem seems to be pretty much secluded to Husky Jerks, as this never seems to happen with the X-Rap, and also the leader which I was using was a very thin one, but had a pretty good sized barrel swivel up front which may very likely would've contributed to the hog-tie issue! True the Husky Jerk isn't the best caster by today's standards, but I think they are more versatile in the fact that they are also a good trolling bait as well......wish they still made them in the old OCW color pattern!

    Husky Jerk Hog-Tie

    Well, every avid angler knows the effectiveness of the Husky Jerk, but I seem to have a very annoying problem when fishing them with leaders.... every other cast the leader gets tangled on the front treble....GRRRR! Any other anglers experience this, and what did they do to remedy this problem?
  10. All this ever increasing cold weather has inevitabaly got me and a lot of my fellow anglers thinking about the fast approaching hardwater season, and, (speaking for myself) LAKERS! I would have to say my personal favorite for hardwater season Lakers is first, the tube jig,in either white or chartreuse,and sometimes just as deadly, the ABU KOSTER (if you have them). However, sometimes if the bite slows down, usually mid February or so, I'll drop the presentation size down to a 1/4oz Buckshot Rattle Spoon, tipped with just a tiny piece of minnow.

    New Rapala minnow

    Pretty sweet looking!......Although, I think that when rapala came out with the x-rap, they really out-did themselves!
  12. Was watching that extreme angler show the other day, and the guy was using one of those Ardent Fishouflage reels, of course it seemed pretty nice, and was manufactured in North America which is extremely rare for a reel these days. But, during a bit of research I did, I found the reviews to be very sporadic, One guy thought it was awesome, the other a pile of junk? Anyways, part of me thinks that supporting North American manufactured goods is great,(ie;St. Croix, and Loomis), while the other wants to stick with something more familiar like the higher end reels such as shimano and what have you that are of course made in china, malaysia etc. etc. Any fellow angler have any personal experience to share regarding this product?

    Canoe trolling motor size?

    30lb min kota endura prob the best bang for your buck...
  14. On a recent outing, which included some nasty elements,such as rain and wind,(yeup....rain in January!), my partner brought along his portable ice-shelter which pretty much saved the day. That being said, I've decided to make it a priority to purchase one of these shelters, but have noticed that the market is flooded with options when it comes to these.....Id be looking for something that when folded down would fit into a med otter sleigh.... Any suggestions?

    Super Braid Lines for ice fishing

    Berkely Fireline Micro ice for me....Braid seems to retain the water a bit more, also would like to try that nano-fil too as well tho!
