BLUE CISCO TROLLING GIRL - CUSTOM HOLO BROWN HOLO COPPER/COPPER BLACK NICKEL DOUBLE COWGIRL - CUSTOM WALLEYE SINGLE GIRL - SING57 GOBLIN JR3 - CUSTOM BROWN ORANGE 8" HINGE - CUSTOM
Blue Cisco Trolling Girl Spring open water trolling. This bait is used till the thermocline develops
Holo Brown Holo Copper/Black Nickel Copper Double Cowgirl The power of #10 blades still is my go to bait for the whole season. The big blades allow you to slow roll and keep the bait in front of the fish’s face. Huge amounts of water are moved creating a vortex behind these baits making fish eat. Can be used fast or slow and by far the best night bait. June-season close
Walleye Single Girl Smaller profile with a large single blade causing tons of vibration. Great for burning or moderate speeds in weeds rocks or sand. June- October
Goblin JR3 This bait provides a hinged long profile that fish can’t resist. The two blades up front create a great vortex but combined with the single tail blade and tail wiggle it seems to trick them all into eating. June - season close
Brown Orange Hinge 8" This is a giant long armed spinner bait. The name comes from the lead head being hinged with a split ring helping to prevent premature failure seen by other safety pin spinnerbaits that have lead molded to the wire. This hinge also allows the rubber tail to kick more aggressively causing fish to go wild. I use throughout the summer peak into early fall. Great on deep break lines off weed edges. July - September
