#324447 Pike Fishing Question

Posted by Kleiner on 27 May 2015 - 10:12 PM

As the water temps get closer to 60F you'll start seeing better numbers. But you're best chance to go after the big girls was directly after ice out. The water will warm considerably during a hot day so I'd definately be fishing that 5:30-8:30pm window that Dilli was talking about. Jerkbaits are by far your best bait this time of year but I'd be throwing big plastic swimbaits too. Keep a close eye for followups and have another rod rigged ready to drop in front of them if they don't take the first bait.

#309871 Algonquin Park Fishing

Posted by Kleiner on 09 June 2014 - 09:52 PM

Live bait is illegal in Algonquin park, leeches fall under the amphibian category... Worms are acceptable, I would maybe invest in 8-10 flourocarbon 6 is a little light for reaction baits.

Wrong. Only live minnows are illegal in Algonquin. I checked with the park warden before I bought the leeches!!

Check the regs, zone 15

I am heading there in July too. Last year I had success trolling lucky bugs tipped with a live leech on a 3 way setup. Caught lots of brookies!

#291958 Baits for Fall Bass?

Posted by Kleiner on 22 October 2013 - 11:10 PM

you're not suppose to give too much informations bro., It's better for anyone to learn by losing their gears, It will help them learn more and understand rather than looking for over the counter tips all the time.

Too much info? I don't think so, I'm not giving away any big secrets here. I think we all joined this site for the same reason; to help other anglers out and hope to get the same in return.

#291757 Baits for Fall Bass?

Posted by Kleiner on 21 October 2013 - 07:17 PM

Same thing I always use for bass 18lbs braid for a 3lbs fish and worms.



I lie LOL I just dont get the challenge in that. I know with different action baits, you need a heavier line, however a 18-25lbs braid ccccc'monnnnnnn! thats a bit much.


But I have always had success on those $0.97 bags of plastic grubs with the spinning tail from Wal-Mart, matter a fact I bought 2 bags of every color they offer. Clear sunny days - year round black/brown works. Overcast days greens/yellows/white work well.


Once upon a time I ran out of baitholder hooks, instead of calling it a day I started using Salmon hooks. Found for some reason I can hook em better with less snags on weeds/branches and whatever.

The heavy braid isn't needed to haul the fish in, its to get that fish out of that heavy cover where he was hiding. You would loose a lot of fish and tackle going any lighter than 10 or 15 lb line. I usually use 30lbs braid in the thick weeds. ;)

#290477 Rice Lake

Posted by Kleiner on 11 October 2013 - 03:07 PM

To be honest, never heard of a fish reference as a bronze. As for the bite, Rice Lake has always been a pressured lake so you really have to know where to find them.

Bronze back is a term used for smallmouth ;)
