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.

I do believe that those flyer could be a good jig for those 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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
