LAKE TROUT NEWS: GUIDE STEVE FOSS ENDORSES ECHOTAIL® BLADE BAITS

-Steve Foss-

I rarely work with lure companies, because pro staffing them obligates me to use those lures, and there are times that other lures do a better job. 

And a guide's gotta use what works. Simple. 

Two companies, however, have been putting out product that I keep using for lakers. One is Big-Nasty Tackle Co., which produces a bucktail jig that is awesome. And, pictured here, is a new series of vibration lures by Vibrations Tackle. Called the Echotail, they've been in my tackle box since summer, and I can say they call in lakers really well. I've been working to tweak them throughout the last months, with excellent success. A productive combination of extreme (but adjustable) vibration and seductive plastic wiggle.

You'll see I axed the front treble, because it doesn't help, and is easy to get caught on the bottom of the hole. I'll also be drilling a small hole in the rear top of the bait, so I can put the rear treble on top and anchor one hook in the plastic. This is the best way to present for lakers. 

Now, a lot of anglers see these types of testimonials and are turned off, because they think someone has been "bought and paid for" in the fishing industry. I look at it exactly the other way around. I don't write these types of recommendations for just any company, because it's my guiding reputation at stake when I do. Also at stake is my 15 years of newspaper journalism experience (truth telling). I don't need to pro staff products. I can just go buy them, after all. And I enjoy working with companies to develop effective fishing tools. Why waste 50 years of fishing experience? 

So when you see something like this from me, you can know I believe what I'm saying. 

Have fun out there, guys and gals. That's what fishing is all about! 

And if you're determined not to let a warm February stop your ice fishing season, come to Ely, where the ice is thick, the travel fine, and the lakers snapping!

Summer Walleyes and Blades

                                                  River Walleye Jigging

Pro staffer Jesse Quale caught the 27" walleye on a 1/4 oz Elite Series Echotail. Casting Echotails over structure during the warm water months has a proven track record of success over the last 5 years.

Try all techniques, snap jigging, rip jigging and casting or retrieving in a slow manner.  We have found that these baits work tremendously in the summer as well.
