Ring Worms

Where is the best place to buy these dandy little plastics? What colors are you all using for the eyes?

You can get Ringworms at Hooked On Fishing in Rochester, at Gander Mountain, and at Cabela's. Most places that sell them have Electric Blue and Purple which are my favorite colors. I like the ones with a white tail best.
I do not carry Ringworms at Catch-N Tackle. I do have Super-Do's which are another "niche" river plastic.
I like Super Do's much better on the river. I catch many more fish on them. I think this is because I fish them more vertical and they remain in the "strike zone" longer. Super Do's are a "do nothing" method of walleye fishing. I use a bit heavier than normal jig and fish them right under the boat. I use conventional round heads or a Fintech Nuckle Ball. You only need to "hover" them slightly above the bottom... and bump the bottom once in a while. Walleye and Sauger reeeaaaalllllly smack Super Do's hard!

Ringworms are a different deal all together... they are a "you gotta work 'em" bait. I use as light a jig as I can by with, and cast them up curent... working them back till they are behind the boat. When they loose contact with the bottom, I cast them out front again, bumping the bottom, all the way. I throw them into the shallows too. So... I tend to loose LOTS of jigs. Or else, I use them on a Weedless Super Do Jig head.
I think I catch more Eyes on Super Do's because I am not hung-up as much!

Anyways, Northlander... I will send you a handfull of my favorite colors of Ringworms if you want to try some. But I do suggest you "Do the Do" and try those on the river also. Catch-N Tackle has the longer / bigger Super Do's in stock and in great colors. I like the bigger Do's much better!
Let me know if I can be of more help.

Northlander,
Go ahead and let me know what colors of Super Do's you want to try... OR... you can mix & match colors in a 25 pack.
And you can just send me a check for the order.
If you do not make a $25.00 or over total order (gives you free shipping on catch-n.com), include $4.00 to cover the shipping.
Include your shipping address with your check.

I'll send YOUR order TO YOU with a 50 pack of assorted color ringies!

Northlander, for stained water I recommend Charteruse Sparkle & Emerald Sparkle... but NEVER pass up Brown and Orange Pepper! It is a "natural" color.
Heck, "the boss" says you can mix your order... why not try 5 each of 5 different colors! Then come back to the one that works the best for you in your water.

Yep, that is "my place"... not a store front, I sell out of my home. No overhead smile.gif 'cept for MOM... she is way over my head!

Northlander....A hint here. These plastics are wild after the water gets to about 50 degrees. Regardless of the amount of "color" or stain in the water, start with the brighter colors like white/red tail or chartreuse and as the water temps drop into the 40 degree water make a shift into the blues browns and dark greens (junebug is a good one). That will hold true for about any plastic. The warmer the water, the more aggressive they will be and they'll not take a good look at what they are hitting, but as the water cools your become more pinpoint in thier hits and will study the bait longer. Another key...chartreuse or white heads for the bright colors and black,purple,or dark blue for the cold water colors. Try a long line drag on the ringworms on a light jighead.

Northlander,
They will work on the St. Louis. I have yet to get skunked on them, fishing a variety of rivers across the state.

SOmething with white in it will work great. The most universal color I have used is the Purple with white tail!!!!!!

I know of another supplier if interested e-mail!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!
