RIGGING 4" POWER MINNOWS AND GULP

3 posts in this topic

LEAD HEAD JIG? TEXAS?

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE HOOK TO USE FOR TEXAS RIGGING?

I use a very long shanked leadhead jig that has some serious barb on the shank, to help keep the minnow in place. I have head that supergluing it on really helps them last longer, but have not tried that yet.

These jigs are not cheap, I haven't found a cheap style yet, they come in packs of two or three for like $2 or so per pack. Hopefully somebody else will have a good and cheaper way.

good luck,

I have tried to find a long shank jig head at Cabelas and they were the ones who told me about texas rigging.

the problem for me is that my favorite presentation right now is that 4 inch minnow on a 1/8 or lighter jig... and have yet to find those in a long shank..

it has been amazing so far, working weeds, catching pike, bass, sunfish, crappies... all on the same minnow...

just getting sick of missing the crappies that are grabbing the tail...

oh well...

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
