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?

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
