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?

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
