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...

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
