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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
