Slender Pointer 127 MR - 1000 Islands

Postby Big-Bass » Sat Feb 04, 2017 11:40 am

Looking to put together some baits to fish the 1000 Islands in NY this summer and picked up a few Cabela's markdown LC Slender Pointer 127 MR baits in Aurora Pro Blue. Is/could this be an effective bait for the 1000 Islands in NY in late June? I plan on drop shotting, throwing tubes and creature baits, and senko-style baits on either spinning or baitcasting, etc. but thought I would ask if anyone uses this bait as it is rather large for most jerk bait applications. Thanks and best wishes on the water!

You may catch a few but that bait is too large for that area during that time period. The waters will be filled with fry, so a 78 or even a 65 would be a better choice. Square bills and spinnerbaits are the ticket up there from late May to the end of June.

Awesome! Thank you! When would this size jerk bait be more effective? I got them on such a good deal I had to buy them.

I'd think thats a bit much unless you're fishing for pike. i would stick to smaller baits like said before, LC pointer 78 or other baits around that size.

Thank you! I ended up taking the baits back in enhance for others. They were a little overkill for what I wanted to use them for but they were an impulse buy. I appreciate the responses. Thanks!
