Forage, rattlin' varmint, or buckshot. Use them outta the boat as well. The fish can't seem to resist them!

I like to pull on my Chubby!

laugh

I start with an aggressive lure and work progressively down to less aggressive lures as needed. I find the Chubby can cover a wide range of moods..up to and including negative..than I go with Chubby dropper rig.

Or.. a Northland jigging spoon, Lindy Rattl'n Flyer, Angel eye, Demon, ect..rigged with a dropper hook, or a plain hook and a slit shot.

on mille lacs 90 percent of the time I will start with a chrome Swedish pimple with green sticker and a single hook, especially if it's cloudy.

Sounds like everyones GoTo Lure is a jigging spoon of some sort. Now to sounds completely stupid, how do you fish jigging spoons? Whats the proper cadence? Just Jiggle Jiggle Sit?

Depends on how the fish are acting. Some days a jiggle, some days a snap, some days a jiggle then a slow reel up and hopefully a chase and a smack.

On my favorite body of water, my go-to is a black/gold jigging shad. Usually outfishes spoons every time. On LOW, like NAMA, I like JR's glow pink stop signs and glo drops.

I use only a head quite a bit, but usually start out with the full minnow.

I like to use only a head of a minnow and it seems to work better if I pinch it off but that might be because the edges are rough and a lot of the time the air bladder is still attached. I jig with a steady jiggle-1/2 to 1 inch lifts and every now and then if there is nothing on the Marcum I will give it a 3 foot lift and a slow drop while I jiggle it down. If a fish comes in I try to keep the same motion and pay attention to my flasher and try and gauge the mood. if he is hungry he will come in and chomp right away but some times you will have to tease them and when they do take there will not be a bite but they will inhale the head and sit there and if you don,t detect that and set the hook right away you will miss them cause they will spit out the head just as quickly. You will get quite a few takers on the drop and if you don,t pay attention to your flasher you will not see them come up and inhale the jig and all you feel is the rod get light and that is the time to set the hook.

Buckshots or Kastmasters are typically the first lures I try every time out. Kastmasters work great for perch too.

I love the Northland forage minnow. I used the Angel Eye lures last year for the first time on the Mississippi out of Maiden Rock. Tipped them with the head of a fathead and pounded the Walleye & Sauger.

    • The question was in regards to doors. As for breaking glass and entering the home I will remind you that locks only keep honest people out, if someone wants to get in to your house they will. Del you always have a comment that is not relevant to the topic being discussed. Matter of fact you have a comment on everything posted. So my glass door on my house has been there for thirty years and guess what Del... no one has broken it yet!
    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/

    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
