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.
