Bro, did you order those dinner bells through the states? I am jealous!

And to reply to the original post, I was smashing walleye last year with a pink northland glow shot with chartreuse glo stick. Really looking forward to trying the coffin spoon this year too. Tungsten jig with a minnow always works too.

can i ask where you bought your Frostbite dinner bells?? Almost everything is bought out in the Canadian website

Hey score23. A buddy of mine put an order in a few weeks ago on the Canadian site, but a lot of the ones we wanted were already sold out.

Definitely agree with the buckshot, I cut the heads off the dead minnows and tip all my spoons and jigging raps with those. Also the forage minnow works really well tipped with a live minnow or jigged with a dead one. January usually books up first and weekends will be tough as well. You can usually get something during the week if you can take time off and comfortable pulling him out of school. February tends to be a bit slow depending on weather and temps. You would be wise to book something now because if ice is delayed and cancellations happen in the first couple weeks things will book up really fast with rebookings.

the ice will not delay, the ice will not delay, the ice will not delay....lol...keep repeating that, and it will happen...lol..i just know it..cheers !

https://fishfrostbite.ca/ seems to have a decent selection in stock now, just bought 2 large, 2 medium, and 1 micro Dinner Bells.

Just bought a bunch of Coffin spoons & Freedom minnow spoons too. Every year I say I have enough and then boom there goes $300.

Agree Shank.
New lures catch more anglerís then fish. IMO.

Definitely feel you there brother. I wonder if northland are a publicly traded company? 😂😂😂

We just put an order in for dinner bells too. Ring ring Walters.

I did the same. Got couple micro and med. The micro are quite small. Put order in on Saturday and came Monday. I live in a small country town so was quite impressed. Happy fishing.

1/4 oz white jig head and dead minnow hooked through the back, aggressive jigging until you mark something then finesse your jigging...BAM fish on !!! iv'e also have done well with a gold slender spoon tipped with minnow head...good luck.

So the micro dinner bells are really tiny, it's clearly panfish bait with the tiny hook.

For Nip I replaced the hooks with red size 8 ones, tipped with a minnow head it ups the size profile nicely.

I heard cameras donít really work on nip. Itís too murky.

They don't, can't see anything.

My Marcum camera works on Nipp, fishing 27 to 29 fow was still able to see my jig and bottom. Wasn't crystal clear but definitely see good enough.

I have the Marcum recon 5. It has infra lighting and regular led lighting. I've used it several times on Nippising. It's fantastic for checking what's at the bottom of the lake when you get to your rental hut. I've tried it on other lakes in the Algonquin highlands area while lake trout fishing but had no visibility as I'm fishing 70 to 80 fow, the cable maxed out at 50 feet, and couldn't make out anything.
