Must have and new jigs or spoons for ice fishing this year?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what the new or must have stuff is out there for the eyes this year? I know there is the new JB Orca Diver, its like the old Orca with the single hook but they have a treble on the end like a Buck Shot. I dont know if the moxie minnows are new this year but I haven't seen them before.

The Moxies are a must have. I bought a bunch to test out right as the bite was tapering of on them.

As far as other stuff, the Lindy Darters are not new this year but must haves for ice fishing and I am going to try them out this winter open water ice fishing.

For the river there is a new plastic just hitting Evert's shelves and a that is the Drag Queen. It is a ringworm body with a huge thumpertail for dragging jigs. I have tried these and am very impressed.

The new Lindy Slick Jig sounds like something to check out for sure. There a horizontal jig that swims to the side when you jig it. It comes in many different sizes and colors, I would think it would work great for eyes and perch. You can use plastics or live bait, and the longer the tail the better it swims.

I'm hoping to get a couple Lindy slick jigs when I go to the ice show this weekend, and hoping to get them for a better price then $3 a piece. After looking them up some more and seeing a video of them in action, they look like they would be killer. I guess they were at the show last year so I am sure some people have tried them out last year, so I'm wondering if they really work well or not. Haven't found much of people talking about how good they really work on the net.

I also will be replenishing my stock of JR's Diamond Jigs and spoons. I had very good luck with them last year.

    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
