Does anyone have any MUST HAVE lures?

I always keep red/white Gem n Eyes with. Those parrot jigs use to be great but they quit making them...

Lake of the Woods is almost always gold/ red glow. Rattles some days help.

I haven't caught much on those new rattle raps -open water, I've caught crappie on rippin raps.

The glow demon with a green top use to be hot- but the red glow out fishes them 3to1 now. I've seen glow blue work.

Never see many black lures...anyone know why?

My "Must Have" lure has been the Northland Forage Minnow jig in the Golden perch color.

There is a particular lake I fish over the Christmas/New Years time and that jig with a shiner minnow has been very productive. Water clarity is 12 - 14 feet.

I jig 4- 5 times about 6", then rest 30 seconds. Repeat this several times then slowly raise my rod time 3' and slowly lower it down with some hesitations/fluttering motion. Sometimes I'll add a small twitch while in the rest phase. Mostly get walleyes, but also deadly on Northerns. Caught a few LMB and a couple big perch (13 - 14").

My primary colors are chartreuse, white and pink, or blue. Other then that, I don't really have any favorite lures.
Something we have in common.........

I've never been a slave to "trend" lures...........

RE: Black lures... Many years ago my dad was fishing off his dock several weekends in early fall and limiting on walleyes averaging 6-7 lbs... The only lure they would bite...... A black beetle spin................

Busy winter between dodging snowstorms and trying to get out fishing!

Lake of the Woods was pretty slow in the basin but we did hook up quite a few -color preferences were the same gold or red, keep changing though. The person who keeps switching catches the most.

I had great luck with Fatso lures this year too- but they aren't cheap! Glow red or pink just pick off fish like a sniper. High hopes for there new #4 hook size in 1/9th... $70 later I get 24 tiny jigs... But when you have $1500 into a brand new Otter equipped -it's hard to do budget cuts on what sinks minnow heads into 15 inch plus crappie's strike zone.

Back to black- we paint Johnson Silver Minnows black on my favorite minnesota lake. The bass and northerns just beat them up.

Had high hopes for this new UV paint- but supposedly walleyes can't see UV... oh well.
