I had to test a boat install today...Soo, on my way out the door I grabbed a spinning rod, Texas rigged with a 4" motor oil tube.

Quickly caught three smallies but, lost my only tube. I found a thick, black, rubber band from the depth finder I'd just installed.

I Rigged the rubber band much like a tube (Lazer Sharp 2-0 keeper hook / 1/4 oz steel bullet) and caught four more smallies B4 mister sharp teeth bit me off.....

Shows to go ya....When they're hungry, they'll eat 'bout anything....lol

See Kevin, I can catch Bass too.. shocked.gif

I have been switching to floating jigs tipped with a leach and a split shot up about a foot. Just before the jig I put on about 3 small beeds then a walleye blade. Has been working great as you can see. Got about 20-30 smallies in just a few hours. Man that was fun. grin.gif

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
