Molds suggestions
« on: 12/08/17 16:01 UTC »
Hi,

I'm looking to buy new softbait molds and i need your advices!! I want a good all around lure. I fish walleyes, yellow perch and big lake trouts, most of the time vertically (ice fishing and under the boat)

Baitfish are minnows and smelts around 2.5 to 4 inches

I've the budget for 2 or 3 molds

Thank you guys!!

Lake Trout....I'd look closely at the 3.5" Essential Swimbait and either the 3.5" or 4" Essential paddletail bait. Both molds are easy to work with and have some room to play the color thing but more importantly they are sized about right for a serious trout jigger.

Thank you guys. Nice looking bait and for the price :o!! But i'm concerned by the lenght of the hook. think i will get one and give it a try next summer for lake trout!! Here in Quebec lake trout fishing is closed from september to april :(

So it's time to get yellow perch and walleye gears out for ice fishing!!

Any other suggestions??

You might consider one of the carrot molds/  I use the small one (3 inch skinny carrot) all the time vertical jigging for crappie.  In the larger sizes I think it would be very representative of a smelt
I find it incredible that I have to explain to a grown American citizen that taking a knee during the National Anthem is disrespectful.

The 3.75 is top 2.75 is side but I’m going to a top in 2.75.  Top is so you can pour laminate bait the why the mold is.
