Waxies? Dont you use Little atom plastics? What he means would be he "threads the needle" slide the waxie on from head to butt and shape it too the jig. I have done the one spot hook on the waxie, kinda like a wacky rig, just the tip, and threaded the needle, it depends on how the fish are, if your in an area with alot of little fish, go with a plastic, or gulp, if they dont like the gulp or plastic, thread the needle nad youll save your bait awhile.

I've found that fish when picky want bait hooked certain ways. Usually, I do the head to butt thing to hide the hook, other times I just tip the hook with the head of the waxie so it's dangling. On other occassions I have had to tear them in the dangling position which for some reason turns them on also. It all boils down to how the fish react to the different presentations. They can be picky, and sometimes they just want plastic. Oh, and I'm not sold on Genz's tip, not sure what that accomplishes other than easy CnR.

ive always ran it over the entire hook. but i generally use plastics first until the fish tell me they dont want them.

For me it depends on the mood of the fish.. More often than not,I use Eruolarve. But I do bring wax worms with as well. with wax worms I often fish them on a horizontle lure. I try to rig them so they hang pretty straight. Much like you would hook a minnow in the summer time. If fishing on a verticle jig, I will often do my best to get it to hang at a 45 degree angle to the hook.

Thats how I do it, and what works for me.

I second Deitz on this. I usually use Eruolarve as well and will put to are three hanging vertical on the hook. Can do the same with waxies.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
