Magnum #22 Rapala as northern bait?

Postby Questor » Fri Oct 27, 2006 10:08 am

For the 10 pound northerns that I'm after is the #22 Magnum Rapala too big? I like the construction and the design. If that's no good can you recommend another lure of the right size that is as well constructed and designed?

HI Q,
I'd say you're a little over gunned with a cd 22. ( I hope you take those 10/0 double tuna hooks off!)
Use any of the popular musky lures like Grandma, Jake, Depthraider, CD 18. Or, try slow trolling a live sucker.
best,
