powerbait question

2 posts in this topic

has anyone fished powerbait with a plain jig head? covering the head if needed to fish it at mid depths without the interference of a split shot to spook the fish. When fishing it suspended with a slit shot it floats up toward the line and was wondering if anyone had tried this.

That's the tactic I'm going to try next time I get to Foster's. I figured I'd use a painted jig, leave the head exposed and cover the hook with a tapered gob of powerbait to mimic the shape of a minnow. I'd have done it last weekend, but I forgot my powerbait in the truck and it would have been frozen solid anyway.

I wish they made sinking powerbait. If they do make it, I can't find it anyplace.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
