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.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
