Busy day jigging/rigging

1 post in this topic

OK gang, don't give up on the Saturday bite even when the boats are running wild and its the middle of the day. I often turn to the deeper bite in 25 to 32 feet and slowly work marks, work slowly just as when a cold front hits. These bites are so subtle (unless a channel cat hits as they have been)you need light line and a very sensitive pole to catch these fish. The challenge is to keep in the same spot with the waves. This approach calls for either a rig or jig w/livebait. It is also a must to be confident that the eyes are down there or this slow approach can feel like slow death... Also I've been south of the Kinni in all but one of the last five trips.

Keep Catchin'

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
