Jigging and Shiners

2 posts in this topic

Coming soon is the time of year to get the ol' shiner minnows out. Jig and shiner (medium size) or shiner minnow rigged is a great producer. Jigging in general is also very productive now and in the future, blade baits or jig and minnow (as mentioned) or jig and plastic - TrollerX will verfiy that the plastics are hot! (ringworms in particular)

In fact come to think of it jig and plastic takes more big fall fish than many other presentations, believe it or not.

I thought I'd mention this as jigging is so many anglers favorite ways to fish and the time is near!

Keep Catchin'

Have you been picking the fish up on minnows as well? Sure seemed minnows worked better then crawlers today. Have you tried tube jigs tip with a minnow? I've done real well in the past on salt and pepper color,black or white head, do you have a favorite color jig or maybe even a tube?

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
