You may have to adjust and play with the volume to see what the fish really want!

My favorites are Pro Tackle short shanks. They have flat sides to give a little different fall with the bait.

I like Cabelas Walleye Wobble jigs, Whistler jigs are good ones too, tipped with a minnow in the spring. Later in the summer I like Northland Phelps floaters with a leech

I would suggest getting one of those combo boxes that has different sizes and colors so you can find what works on your lakes. Also Lindy now has those new jigs where the different colored lead heads clip onto the hook. Interesting concept.

I'm trying the lindy jigs this season, so far the hook size is the only thing that is a little off. But it is very early in the season.

Do you mean that the hook seems too big if you are using a smaller jig head?

Haven't used em,(New Lindy Ex-Change Jigs) but the hook looks huge, esp. if using the 1/8 oz head. Looks like an 1/8 oz of "hook" with an 1/8 oz head. Anyone using them with much success??

I've been using the Phelp's Half-Face Jigs for 6 years now, and I barely ever find myself using anything else! Great hooks, wonderful paint, and the stand-up style works for every situation!

I like the lindy Fuzz-E-Grubs, especially in glow.

I was using a 3/8oz. Whistler jig chartuse/orange and added a small treble stinger to it. Put on a whole crawler and stuck the stinger about four inches from the jig and drifted with it and caught walleye's better than spinner/crawler's or plain single hooked leeches.

Caught 2-26.5" eye's, and a 27 7/8" eye on this jig!

where i fish pink seems to be the ticket. type doesnt matter as much as color, usually use standard gumball, smallest possible for wind/ current. cant figure it out because they slam the darker colored swims and raps, and ironically the bigger the better. might have to try the lindy if the hook is a little bigger.

It depends on where I'm fishing, but Fuzz-E-Grubs and the Hair jigs from Moore's Bait & Tackle are usually what I'm using.

Multi-colored jigs are probably my favorite. The color changes seems to provide a little bit of a "flash" that catches the fish's attention a little better at times. Orange/Chart, Black/White(Pearl) with a little red dot on the top, Black/Red.

Super-glo chart. seems to always be a good producer too.

i just got home from leech and used the new lindy jigs. LOVED them. could change sizes very fast and get back to fishing without having to cut off and retie. it was very windy and changing hooks was a pain.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
