1 Equipment/tackle on Sat Nov 27, 2010 1:22 pm

Smile Hi
Thought I'd start this section off with a fairly safe entry.
Toward the end of the season late Sept - Oct, we were using a platic bait system called fin-S. Nothing very special, minnow shaped grey-ish colours mostly. the jig head is expensive ( approx 40 cents ) but has a coiled groove which holds the plastic fin-S body on. We were catching undersized ( barely ) walleye but lots. The picks are a schooling fish, so no surprise when they are the same size. The fin-S minnows caught bass etc during the early season as well. I am always looking for that " go to " bait. normally, I would say a " zero " or senko wieghtless on a worm hook. However, the fin-S ahs been impressive.

A neighbour of mine told me last year he had a hot bait and I toild him I had one too. His was actually the Fin-S bait in a similar blackish/grey with off white belly. We went out a couple of times on a weekend and he used his hot bait and only managed one Crappie. I used mine and caught a walleye a a couple of bass. It was a bad weekend weather wise though, very windy and some rather large waves, very difficult to control the boat.

I have some of those Fin-S baits for this year and will hopefully try them with some success.

My go to bait is the SLAMMER made by Mark Kulik of StrikeZone Tounamnet baits. The have caught everything except a musky. They are awsome and are killer for Smallies.

He has just come out with a new swimmbait that was killer on the Smallis in the fall.

well you can never have too many " go to baits ". I certainly have my share or more than my shares.
My history goes soemthing like this.

Berkeley power grubs esp the original olive colour.
Berkeley power worms 8 in in motor oil colour
A dark ribbon worm, very ripply when it falls ( forget the name - senior's moment here )
then the " zero ' or senko -mostly white
