. . . with a dozen medium-size sucker minnows. Used 'em all and only caught 5, (piteeful, I know), all pike. I missed the first two because the pole I had rigged up and ready to go had mono on the reel and I'm used to using fireline, so I wasn't setting the hook hard enough.
I don't like to let 'em have it very long, because the big ones will scarf that size minnow anyway and I don't want to guthook 'em. If the price is losing small ones, I can live with that.
Biggest two were 29 and 30 inches and fat, a lot of fun on light tackle.

What's the deal with Gander Mountain? Last couple of times I've stopped in, they haven't had white 3/4 ounce spinnerbaits with colorado blades, my second-favorite lure (and favorite for weed fishing.) How do you not stock enough of 'em in Minnesota?

Always had good luck for Northerns right under the
Gray's Bay Bridge, Don't know if you can still fish
there, but it was a great Canal to fish.

Ordin which store you stopping at? If you ask the guys in the dept. they may be able to look the item up. maybe even show if another store in the twin cities has the bait.

The one in Eden Prairie. Also have tried the nearby Walmart, and the baitshop in Minnetonka
on Hwy 7 and the one on Wayzata Blvd. Thanks for the suggestion. (Actually, I'm looking for 3/8 ounce, not 3/4.) If that doesn't work, I suppose I can break down and order some from one of the catalogs that keep coming in the mail.

As good as my rat-l-trap's been working, I may not need one this year anyway.
