    Default Best lure

    Just cleaned out the tackle box from last summer. Checking to see what was used and what wasn't. My best results this last summer came from a Mepps #4 orange. What was your best lure this last year?

    I will say that a flesh variation called "Cotton Candy" was pretty good, all year long. But that wasn't best.

    All the "rookies" were tearing their hair out with their hoochies, flashers, plugs, spoons, buzz bombs, spinners and herring strips here in SE. Personally, I had consistent good luck all summer long by getting back to the basics - 4-8 oz. of lead, a 6' leader, and a whole herring.

    I'm still chuckling quietly over a comment made at a local charter association meeting about how bad the fishing was this summer. It was the 4th most productive fishing season since statehood... couldn't have been THAT bad!

    For grayling a #0 meps with a froest green body. Every pond, lake, and river I used it on where grayling were present I caught plenty of fish. I even cut down a tree with my pocket knife after loosing it on the little tok river.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    I agree. no flashers or divers for me. I also had great luck with crippled herring jigs last summer. Caught most of my halibut and several silvers with 'em.

    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    A few shackles of gillnet seems to "bring home the bacon" for a lot of folks.

    But purse seiners are where the tonnage is...
