Some new icefishing goodies
« on: December 10, 2016, 02:14:32 PM »

We're steadily getting the baitshop stocked up for the coming icefishing season.

New items this week are four new colors in the #4 Rapala Rippin' Raps, and four new custom painted #6 Rippin' Raps. We also currently have every standard color in the #4's, #5's, and #6's.

New this year are the Rapala Slab Raps. We're stocking every color in the larger #5 size.

We also got a close-out deal on a Lowrance Elite-5 Ice Machine. It's a sonar/ GPS unit with a portable carry case for use on the ice. It would also work well on your boat during the summer, (just need to add a skimmer transducer.) Last years price was $600. SOLD

We'll be getting all our standard Jigging Raps topped off this week. Still trying to get a hold of the new Rapala Flat Raps. We're also looking at getting some custom painted Jigging Raps this year, so watch out for them.

Some more new baits.

Jigging Raz from Tyrant Lures. Large size is 3/4 ounce, about midway between a #7 and #9 Jigging Rap. They come in several unique colors. They also have a very large tail fin, so they should swim really well.

We also got our Jigging Raps topped off. We carry all 26 colors in all five sizes.

BRING ON THE ICE!

More new baits in today.

Johnson Johnny Darter. A nice, heavy bait, about the size of a #7 Jigging Rap. Unique thing with this bait is it has a built in rattle. Nice big tail hook, too.

Another new swim bait is the Acme Hyper Glide. Little lighter bait, about the size of a #5 Rap. Neat thing with this bait is that on the drop, wings pop out from the side to make it glide more than a typical swim bait.

Also got our Moonshine Shiver Minnows topped off. We carry every color and size, (something like 146 different baits!)

All these baits would make great stocking stuffers for the fisherman on your Christmas list. Fishermen also love gift certificates to the baitshop. We will  be running a special offer thru Christmas Eve. Get a $30 gift certificate for $25.

I'm pretty excited!  :dance:  We've taken our first step into the custom painted lure market!  :rock:

We're starting small,  but will add more sizes and colors if things take off. So far we have 4 colors in the #7 Jigging Raps.

Top to bottom - Metallic Purple Perch, Orange Firetail, Baitshop Guy, (red tiger over glow,) and Bay de Noc Goby. Pic really doesn't do them justice. Come check them out!

Finally got a hold of the new Rapala Flat Jigs in  the #6 size. It's a heavier bait, with a wider profile and broader tail. Weight is 1 3/16 ounce, (a #7 weighs 5/8 ounce.) Perfect for fishing deep or in current, (which describes most of the spots on LBDN.) Second pic shows a side-by-side comparison of a Flat Jig next to a #7 Jigging Rap to show the difference in profile, (Flat Jig looks more like a goby.)

We also got in some Mummy Worms. They are preserved wax worms that come in many colors, (so far we just have chartreuse and red.) They last for up to 2 years, and are very firm and plump. I can see where they would be good for panfish, whitefish, and steelhead applications.

Come check them out!

Last batch of Mummy Worms went pretty quick. Got in a new batch, in several more colors. Now we have them in purple, orange, blue, yellow, chartreuse, natural, red, green, and pink.

No taste testing yet, but I think if I was a panfish, I'd be in trouble!
