With some above freezing weather and the snow mostly melted, spring is in the air, a few more days and it will be official. Not sure if I'll attempt another shot at ice fishing this season, maybe an outing for some Northern pike.
Either way, my tacklebox is squeaky clean and loaded with my favorite lures, all sharpened to perfection with mean intentions. My tacklebox is set up for "all purpose" fishing, as I'm fishing waters that contain most freshwater species. As I have way too many lures to git into a tackle box, I narrowed it down to my spring favorites.
Here is a quick rundown:
Dardevle and Williams Wabbler spoons ranging from 2 to 5 inches.
Mepps and other in line spinners ranging from size 1 to 15.
A few Rapala X rap, shad rap, countdown and jointed floating.
Bomber Long A shallow and deep diver.
Smithwick rogues, 4 and 5 inches.
Storm Thunderstick, straight and jointed floating.
Some Arbogast Jitterbugs, frog, weedless and musky size.
Storm Chug Bug.
Rebel Pop R.
Brush Baby deep diver.
A couple Cotton Cordell wally divers.
Cotton Cordell Red fin, floating jointed.
Little joe worm harnesses.
The regular terminal tackle, hooks ranging from #14 to 3/0, split shot, egg and bell sinkers, jigs ranging from 1/32 oz to 3/4 oz, steel leaders, flouro carbon trolling leaders, snap swivels, pre-tied live bait rigs , bobber, popping corks, etc.
The the mandatory blade, knife, measuring tape, scale sunscreen, bugspray, camera and video recorder and were about ready to go.
