Catch-n-Tackle - Ring-n-Grubs

3 posts in this topic

Sunday my son (4) & I fished with Rick & Dennis at Frog Stomp in Fargo and Rick sampled to my son with some Ring-n-Grubs. Thanks!

So anyway, Monday night finds us back at Lake Osakis at our favorite shore spot (a little secret hole special to us and a couple of hundered locals) tossing crawlers for sunnies and little bass and a couple of local boys about 8 or 9 come up and start fishing. They're pretty friendly, so my son 'samples out' some of the Ring-n-Grubs to them.
First cast with a chartreuse/orange grub and one of these local kids pulls out a 3lb. LM bass from a shore-hole the size of your living room. It was rigged kind of Carolina (one of my carp kahles & some split shot). We'd been saturating the area with live bait for an hour and didn't rouse this mama, but the Catch-n-Tackle Ring-n-Grub did the trick.

Thanks Rick & Catch-n-Tackle! You made two kids' day.

My pleasure Aquaman.

Little Eric is going to be a dyno angler, not too bad already for a 6 year old.

I'm happy to hear he shared the wealth with the other kids and that they had good luck with an artificial when live bait wasn't kicking them out. I've noticed that pattern a little more lately as well.

As those waters start cooling down, that's when the Catch-N tackle plastics really start shining on walleyes. If you haven't tried it, get out there and really work it until you master it.

Once you do, you can really cut down on having to bait your jigs up all the itme and be more productive getting after those fall walleyes.

Those Ring-N Grubs are pretty good. As you know Backwater Eddy nailed a dandy walleye on one rigged with a Super-do Weedless jighead. I prefer the Ring-N Tube for walleyes, but the Ring-N Grub is pretty good as well.

Hmmm...split shot rigged plastics! My secret is out...okay I'm NOT the only one using that rig. Aquaman, that specific method of fishing works great for just about anything, including walleyes. It's a very simple method that is great to use with kids because it's nearly tangle and snag-free. If you get a snag and loose the tackle your out a hook and split shot... grin.gif

Keep using that rig and here's a variation for walleyes...split shot with a floating jig head, such as the "hook up" variety that catch-n tackle carries. I use this combo on Koronis and Big Birch (by grey eagle) during the fall on steep drops. Both lakes are loaded with "shear" drop-offs. The walleyes slide up on bars with this type of structure just before dark.

What makes this rig work???? One - I maintain a taunt line with the bait vs a slip sinker rig so I can feel ANY weight from a strike & Two - I can fan-cast this rig like a jig and work diferent depths of the structure I am fishing. EASY CHEESY!! Oh yeah...I usually anchor when I am doing this wink.gif

Also another reason to consider this is some structure is just toooo ackward to fish any other way, such as trolling plugs.

Sounds like you had a fun day and your son has the making's of a great fishermen! Nav

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
