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 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. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
