Not sure where you are but I found my Glo Shots at Gannon Sports in Oshawa, I know Sail in Oshawa does not sell these lures. They were a popular seller this year so they may be hard to find right now.

As for the rod, not sure what you are fishing with now but you do want a rod that is pretty sensitive as the bite can be very light up there but at the same time you want a rod that can handle everything from a small perch to a 20+ pound fish, the beauty of fishing Nipissing is you never know what might be coming up. That being said I am not a big fan of rods that the reel mounts onto the rod with the two plastic sleeves like the one you posted, I prefer the rods that you can adjust/screw the handle to secure the reel to the rod.

you can also try perch eyeballs on the lures.......it works and they stay on better

but first you have to catch a perch

Dang! I was just at Gagnon Sports, its where I bought the Seville Vibrato - I will stop back in there this Friday to see if they have Glo-Shots. Thanks for the tip FatRap!

So the importance of feeling the bite is to set the hook right? As soon as you feel that bite, you pull up on the rod to set the hook? Any other techniques/tips to get the fish through the hole without losing it? I Perch and Walleye are straight forward, reel up through the hole - but if the bite is heavy and something large is on the line would you handle it any different?

Only been fishing a couple times but I feel like this is a gig I'll really like!

I see lots of recommendations for 1/4 oz buckshots, is the 1/2 oz too large? Would I be best to swap the orange/yellow 1/2 oz I have for 1/4 oz if that's the largest I'll ever need?

Thanks all, fantastic collaboration by seasoned fisherman helping out the little guy - can't wait to get out there!

Now to locate the glo-shots, especially the rare ones like the wonder bread! Going to have to stop by Fishing World in Hamilton this weekend...

$25 off of this puppy... is it going to do a better job than the $15 combo I already have?

Great combo, I have one and it is sensitive with great back bone

Depends on the depth and the current.. You should be fine but you could even go down to ⅛ jigs..

"Get the gaff"........always a good idea to have a gaff and make sure it is accessable to grab quick.
