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...
