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.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
