Freshwater Lure of the Month
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
~Henry David Thoreau
The Thunderstick lure was originally created by Lauri Rapala in the early 1900’s and was fished off of docks in lakes and ponds. Little did Lauri know, this lure that she had originally carved out of birchwood would become fine tuned over the years, and with a little added color, would be a mainstay for every pike, walleye, and any other freshwater fisherman out there.
Currently being manufactured by Storm, these lures are now made with hard plastic that stops the pike from penetrating the lure with its teeth, which can result in a better hookset. Casting and retrieving slowly will create a natural wiggle that attracts pike. Thundersticks can be used to troll and to cast. They are generally meant for water depts. Of 1 to 5 feet.
Rated as a “Top 10 Pike Fishing Lure” by eHow.com, this lure is a must have for any fisherman’s tackle box.
Lures are on their way, be on the lookout!
