minnows or maggots

5 posts in this topic

Are there times when maggots seem to produce better for URL crappies or is it strictly a minnow bite. I am wondering if it would be worthwhile to bring wax worms and maggots for our next trip up.

The only time I use waxies up there is during the day. Otherwise its pretty much a minnow bite. At times its shiners V.S. chubs but when you get into the fish they seem to hit anything that glows.

Hmmm, N'lander, anything that glows?

Makes me wonder just how many more drinks would be sold at W.W. if they put glow on the beer bottles, shot glasses and drink glasses.

Not that there's any shortage of alcohol sales going on there on any given night, and I've kicked in my fair share of revenue.

But can't you see it? Get S.T. to put some of his special glow paint on all the bottles and watch the guys start zapping them with their blue-light specials to get up the glow. Blue lights blinking everywhere. Next thing you know, Fox Mulder shows up looking for the truth.

Oh shi*, here comes another thread about the URL triangle.

When your'e in the crappies, your'e in the crappies! Minnow heads and glow spoons. (red)

I've been up there twice and both times I've been blessed right off the bat. I've litterally caught 20 crappies that inhaled the angel eye and wedged sideways in their mouth. No hook, they just slammed the spoon!

Best darn fishin I've ever had.

Once I went out on a charter from Mazatlan Mex. and we stumbled into a square mile of dolphin and tuna feasting on bait fish. All around us the dolphin's were jumping. We landed 32 tuna and lost twice as many. That kind of fishing takes endurance!

My experience up there was just as much a kick in the butt.

I only have 3 trips to URL...

One trip I got most of my fish on maggots.
The next trip I got them all on minnows.
The next trip I got them all on a plain jigging spoon. I limited out each time.

Just depends on what's working at the time I guess.
