Millenium Lookalike stand-up jigs & “Bass Candy” Tube Baits.

1 post in this topic

Finding the right stand-up jig has been a challenge so I am always game to test new jigs to see if they hold up to my needs.

This fall I started testing the Millenium Lookalike stand-up jigs and found a very great jig for walleye, pike, and cats. A sturdy wide gap hook and a reliable stand-up jig that offers a quality brush guard all spell out a winner for late fall walleye or bruiser pike and cats up in the shallows on rivers or lakes.

Walleye & pike were not the only fish suitable to target with the Millennium jig, big cats are no match for the heavy duty wide gap quality hook built into the Millennium jigs.

Many jigs are not built nearly heavy enough to handle the crushing jaws of a sumo channel cat or the power of a monster flathead, but the Lookalike handles them easily and effectively. Whether your feeding cats live baits or cut baits this jig puts the bait in their face so a solid hook-up is a guarantee.

I have had excellent luck rigging the jigs with live baits as well as plastics. For those who are not especially comfortable using frogs for bait I recommend trying the Millennium “Bass Candy” Tube Baits as a bait option, they do a great job of imitating a frog when rigged on a stand-up style jig or a conventional tube jig.

Another plastic bait option worth experimenting with is large 5" shad bodies rigged on the Millennium Lookalike jigs they offer both bulk and action that will draw in sumo fish after dark.

All in all, I would say the Millennium jigs and the “Bass Candy” tube baits are winners and well worth a try this fall on you favorite sumo piggy species near you.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
