What did you ask Santa for as far as fishing gear and lures are concerned?

I know I'm getting some 10 # Trilene XL fishing line this year! Can't have enough fishing line :)

On my list is new waders, carbide studded boots, wading jacket. This will be for fishing the streams up on the north shore for Trout. I got an early Christmas gift in December, a Garmin InReach Explorer +.

I think Santa would shoot me if I asked for anything else.

I have a long list of stuff I "need" and I like to be surprised, so hopefully Santa will bring me one of the following:

-waders
-buddy heater
-okuma baitfeeder reel
-fingerless wool gloves

A new bait refrigerator for the garage. My wife was not happy when a couple dozen crawlers escaped from a flat in the refrigerator in the kitchen the night before a Canadian trip this past September.

Funny you should ask the question. I was just looking at the Cabela's flyer last night and saw that they have St. Croix Premier spinning rods on sale for $99. I had to think hard if I really wanted to ask Mrs. Claus to put one under the tree. They're really nice rods.

I beat Santa to it and snagged up some good BB swivels and quick snaps the other day. Walked by them twice at that. I have enough tackle to last my lifetime already.....but will still buy a horse tird at a 'dime-on-the-dollar'. :) oth

Asked Mrs Claus for something from Sig Sauer company.. And Ice breaker clothing for the May trip to the Q. Which was my way of telling her about the trip again this coming year :) The dog could use a new wool sweater for the trip as well..

Waders are at the top of my list. I'd also like an 8wt setup but will wait until the spring

I learned years ago that the best thing to reply, when asked from my mother in law of what I want... is a Bass Pro Gift Card. Not as much fun for them...but I sure enjoy relaxed perusing through the aisles with that card in my pocket!

Hey Jackfish - St Croix is having a big sale on a bunch of their rods. Discontinued styles. Some 60% off. Premier crankbait rods are among them.

Said as convincingly as possible while staring in the mirror... "I don't need another rod... I don't need another rod... I don't need another rod..."

Thanks Dave, you just cost me some serious $$$. "Well, I don't neeeeeeeed it necessarily, but it could be my backup to my backup..."

I was waiting for Zmans. I will just ask for some jigs and a leech locker. Also a St. Croix or two. :)

I used to keep all kinds of live bait in the fridge when I was a kid, I don't think my mom was real pleased but she put up with it somehow. :)

Santa,
All I want is for my grandson to catch a nice sized northern this year. And maybe get him a tackle box so he stays out of mine.
Thank You

If your grandson wants to read my article " Grand Slam Lures " please email me - queticomike@yahoo.com - and request the article. There is a section on pike fishing that might be helpful.

I'm typically chasing walleye in the BWCA. Last season I bought one top water popper to target some bass, absolutely hammered big smallies with it. Such a blast. Small little slimer bit it off on one trip. Fair to say I'm asking for more.

Read the article, though I couldn't get the kid to read it...yet. Thanks Mike, I will probably use some of the techniques you wrote about, not only for the pike, but also the other species.

Santa doesn’t need to bring me anything new, but it looks like my 15 year old nephew will be getting an Orvis 5 weight starter fly fishing set up. This will be out of the blue for him, but I’m holding hope it might just be the start of a big shift for him.

I'm glad I could be of some help. Merry Christmas to you and your grandson!
