Lindy rigs

4 posts in this topic

It seems some of the guys are out and doing well with lindys and leaches. Is everybody using plain hook or are they pulling spinners? If so is there any particular color to the spinners?

Gary,

I fished Winnie over the weekend. Used a floating Roach Rig (chart./orange) with a leech or shiner some of the time and had pretty good luck with it.

I use Lindy rigs a lot on Winnie and have since they were first introduced.

I prefer red hooks, no spinners. It'll keep a lot of the perch & hammer handles off... smile.gif

Gary,

I generally don't run spinners that often but I have had times that they smoke rigging natural.

There are two things that I use them for:

1.provide visibility

If the fish are scattered across a flat, they can attract attention.

2.provide lift

If I'm pulling in the mud, they are very helpful with lifting the bait a couple of feet so it is above all the silt. That mud can really foul a good spot if the bait and weight are pulled down in it. I caught fish last weekend slightly up the break from the mud so I didn't use a spinner. I did mark many eyes deeper and if I would have had to get off the break and in the mud, I definitely would have ran a spinner. The fish I was on were moving up and down and I was able to get picked up on the cleaner break.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
