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...

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
