Sometimes just a simple plain jig and minnow is the best way to go for me.

Plain hook, whole minnow and splitshot on the deadstick. The dropper buckshot works with a whole minnow as well.

Buckshots, Scenic Tackle Go Devils and Angel eyes and JB rattin Varmits.

I like the rattling ones as it adds to the effect with a little rattle to attract eyes.

I have yet to try the Lindy flyers but I will be soon as they look like the ticket.

What Harvey said for jigging spoons, but add in the Swedish Pimple as well.

Mine would be either a Scenic Tackle Angeleye ,Northland forage minnow in perch or the Kastmaster in the perch pattern.My reason for picking them is that they simple work at attracting and catching walleyes. There are some lures out there that will attract but unless the fish are really active you can't seem to get them to commit.

I will have to take a look at those Lindy Flyers for both walleyes and lakers.

Buckshot. I think I go with this becuase of my confindence in it. I am pretty sure there are plenty of jigs that work, but I KNOW I can catch them with an orange Buckshot!

Northland "WHISTLER JIG" and "THUMPER JIG".. minnow head, or whole minnow.. Lindy "FLYER".. when down sized on these lures mentioned, they also work well for me on crappie,perch,even fat rock bass..

Jb Rattling Varmints were the cats meow for me last year. Second was the buckshot's, but that wasn't really a comparison either.

    • In short, "the main reason politicians are deathly afraid of economic downturns:,,,
    • Well, the dismount is the part that everyone remembers, and will make or break the entire routine. 
    • The overwhelming majority of that money that they are making is speculative and has no tangible value such as banking, insurance,real estate etc and that value can vaporize very quickly. When the debt reaches the breaking point there are going to be a lot of urbanites figuring out that corn and potatoes don't grow on asphalt or concrete. We will see then where the value is.  
    • Well, he's right,you know? Oh yeah, those two women just made the list. 
    • There was not much mentioned about the debt this cycle because both side's economic policy plans called for no change in course. So am curious......now that Palin and Coulter are saying the same thing "we" are about Trump.....does that mean they are mad and crying liberal tears as well? Not so ironically, it sure is looking like Billghazi and D2E are the actual libtards in the room.  
    • Should be cold enough the next few days to do that.
    • I like to let hang for two weeks if the weather is cold.
    • This morning, while in the garage feeding my dog, I saw a mouse running along the wall and behind the tool bench. Thirty seconds later, "SNAP!" There it was. A dark mouse in it's prime pelt giving the last few kicks in the trap before expiring.   Do you guys like your mouse meat fresh or do you allow it to hang a few days like you would a deer?
    • So in Minnesota's case then, wouldn't it make more sense for the metro area to return control of the resources and ownership of public lands in the northern part of the state to the northern counties so they wouldn't be such a burden on the metro area?   Or is it really more about the power than the money?
    • That's because you still have many that are still fighting the 2016 election cycle and/or are upset because their gal lost the election and can't seem to be able to recover from that fact.  It's over. Trump will now be the president. So going forward, he is now going to have to earn my vote come 2020. And it will be based 100% on what I see and my own evaluation of his performance in the next 4 years. Not what the NYT's says about him or his critics. For now, it's all I can do   She's 100% right. Especially her comment regarding the debt. Little was mentioned regarding our debt this election cycle. Her quote; “When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” she asserted.   Can't be stated enough. This is but one small example of how government can end up creating market distortions
