Post your catch

Recommended Posts

Well with the VHS topic hot the MNR has already hinted that if things are as bad as they suspect, live bait fish including all auquatic baits (leeches, crayfish, frogs etc.) may be banned within 2 years. Your live bait may be reduced to maggots, worms, crickets etc.

 

This thread is not a VHS thread however. With the possibility however that it may cause the discontinued use of live baits, I've started this thread for catches using artificials only. Post your pictures where you used stick/body baits, plastics, spoons, fly's etc without tipping with live bait of any kind including worms.

 

Now Fishmaster I know this will be a tough one to stay out of but please guys............... lets limit the replies to artificial catches only and refrain from reopening the live bait debate.......... :P get it?

 

I'm going to try to hit the ice tomorrow between games and I'll bring the camera. Hopefully I'll put up the first post.

 

Oh ya tell us what you used and if you can get it in the picture is even better B)

All fishing, ice/stream/boat etc

Just looking to see how guys make out on artificials. It may be possible that it's mandatory soon so lets see if there are any success stories out there on a regular basis.

 

I would however say that the ice pics will be the hardest to come by.

Prove me wrong and show us how you did it

I can't remember the last time I've used organic bait. Probably while ice fishing, which was several years ago. I use 100% artificials these days.

My wife and I didn't catch anything on live bait this past year...all our fish were on artificials.

Except for a few minnows we used on the Lower Niagara last winter and a couple ice fishing trips, I haven't used live bait in probably 40 years and I usually do pretty good.

Hello,

I fish walleye tournaments and live bait is slowly being replaced by artificial. A good example was this past summer in July when I was fishing Michigan's Upper Peninsula with Ron Seelhoff - the 2006 PWT angler of the year. Most of the anglers where catching fish with live bait and bottom bouncers and Ron was contour trolling Lead-core and small shad raps to catch the big fish.

I too seldom use live bait... The only times being in the winter ice fishing or when I gou out with friends who just want to catch fish the easy way :)... besides that I always use artificials, from plastics, to cranks, poppers, whatever...

Only use artificial.

 

My 2 year old girl picked out this storm lure for me while she was running around walmart and I caught my first walleye with it on Rice.

I fish artificials 99% of the time and I do okay. Well, some days anyway!

 

I think all, or almost all, the pics I've posted on this board have been on artificials.

Here are some of the beauties that I have caught on artifical lures. Using Shad Raps, worm harnesses with Berkley power worms and northport nailers have caught me some great fish! :thumbsup_anim: The Salmon was my best catch ever weighing in at 26.9 lbs and she won me the ExtremeFishergirl Contest. :w00t::thumbsup_anim:

I don`t have a lot of pictures and really am not good at figuring out how to post them anyway.

 

Caught a lot of fish on artificial baits, including some you wouldn`t expect to like carp and catfish.

 

I don`t usually use live bait.

All the fish I catch are on artificials, as that is all I use. This one might be the most surprising although I'm sure some guys (Ohio Fisherman) have done it as well.

All of these fish except the pike (and thousands more) were caught on an inline spinner with a dressed hook.

I'm 100% artifical bait guy....

Used to fish some limited live bait, but stopped about 4-5 years ago completely.

I just enjoy the challange, and Invlovment more I guess?

 

Sorry no picks of the lures...they are all removed before I take any pics(I'm a bit of a stickler for getting the hooks out ASAP)

But these are all recent catches from last season, and every one was Taken on artificals.

      Typical Nickolas Cage movie, It starts for 90 minutes and then doesn't finish. "" LOOKING GLASS" Cage owes 100's of 1000's in back taxes to the IRS. He did this one to pay down the debt I guess. Terrible way to waste 2 hours. If he spoke the worst line in movie history it might have been worth it. In a movie called ""Straw Man" if I can recall he stops a woman riding her bicycle,  pulls a gun on her and says "Step away from the bike!" Then he is burned at the stake by the locals.

    • What's your best boat ramp argument or funny story?

      Launched in St.Clair and had trouble starting it.  Took my time cause there was nobody trying to get there boat in.  While playing with the motor a guy says to me "Are you going to be all day".  I looked behind me and it was a guy that wanted to get his boat out.  I said to him "My bad I thought you were fishing there" lol.  A little awkward when I moved my boat to the other side, but all was okay.  Was a lesson learned cause it was my first launch with my first boat.   I'm sure some of you guys

      Just got back from a fly in to Old Post Lodge On Lake St Joseph near Pickle Lake. First time up there this early. Usually go in July when it's warmer. Fishing was amazing. The guide put us on Walleye and Pike very day. Didn't seem to matter where we went we caught fish. I walked to the back of the island the lodge is on and fished off the rocks. Caught and released 35 Walleye in 1 1/2 hours. Best ever back there. Was cold a few days in the morning but we dressed for it. Definitely a great place
