  1. Greetings, When they are in an aggressive mood (not often) they will hit all 3 hooks. Most of the time they will hit the 3rd hook and occasionally I will have to put a 4th stinger hook on when they are just nipping at the worm. Back in the day the only crawler rigs that were available were 3 hook so that is all I ever used.
  2. Haven't used the little guy but you got me thinking. I wonder how the Lindy little joe would work? I also thought about trying the Lazy Ike.
  3. Thanks Big Al, I use mostly the T 4 and the U 20. Yellow and black. Yellow and red. Orange and black in that order. I use a whole nightcrawler and occasionally use a stinger hook on the end if they are short striking. Yes #2 hooks. I usually use about a 12" dropper with a 30" leader. As far as speed goes I just hang it over the side and when it looks right I send it back. The action on this lure is absolutely mesmerizing. Believe it or not I caught this 55" Musky on it last year. Good luck.
  4. Thanks for the info. I will.
  5. This lure is very speed sensitive. Slow as she goes. If you troll too fast she will spin on you. I normally use a 3 way swivel with a 30 inch leader and a 1 to 2 oz. dropper about 12" long. Strictly old school but that's what works for me. I very seldom fish big water or fish deeper than 30' so I have no need for riggers or divers. I haven't tried it with any lures other than the flatfish. I assume it would work just as well with the other lures.
  6. Here is a lure I made and have been using since the 1970's. I have been keeping it a secret for 50 years and figured it's time to share. It's a flatfish with the hooks removed and a crawler rig attached to the back. DYNOMITE!
  7. We decided to try fall fishing instead this year. Looking at the middle of September. We narrowed it down to Guffin bay or Black lake. How is the fishing at that time?
  8. Looking for any information on Hi Tech Tackle. The owners name is Dave and I know he is from up state New York. He made spoons and crawler rigs and sold them at the Harrisburg Sportsman show several years ago. (see pic). I have his phone number but it is out of service. Anyone know what happened to him or how to contact him? Thanks.
  9. Thank you for all your help. You have been very kind.
  10. Thanks again. Sounds like a plan to me. I am going to contact them today.
  11. Thanks. Looking into Guffin Bay Resort. May be a better fit for the kind of fishing I am after. Only reason I was looking at Henchen is because they allow pets. I usually fish the Canadian side but can't get there this year.
  12. Thanks for the info guys. I don't have the equipment for salmon fishing. No line counter reels. No downriggers. Just medium spinning equipment.
  13. I will be there week of July 11-18. Meet me at Henchens and I will give you something to scream about. If you have a set that is. A hole.
