Northern on crappie jigs

Recommended Posts

Guest

Last year my dad hooked into a huge northern. It wasn't on a tip up, though we had tip ups. It hit his tiny crappie jig. Why would a northern choose a crappie minnow over a big sucker or shiner? Does this happen a lot on upper Red. Just wondering.

Yep, It happens a lot on URL. Theres nothing quite like a 15 pounder on 2 pound test line. Check out the Waskish Minnow Station website for the picture of the monster I caught and released a couple years ago. Good Luck, Polar Bear smile.gif

The one in the picture was actually caught on 4 pound, but still a real blast. Surprisingly it came up through the hole very easily. The toughest part is getting their head started up, this one actually swam up like she was gonna jump right out on the ice wink.gif Only took a minute or so. Best of luck. Polar Bear

Yep, lots of big pike on crappie jigs. They're out in 13-14 feet eating perch, I figure. Since it's such open water, no weeds or rocks, really, unless you're on the cribs, you can get those pike in on light line if you're patient and if everyone else in the house reels up so there are no tangles.
