Walleye Jigs

6 posts in this topic

What kind of Walleye jigs can I use with a bobber and stopper? For some reason I like the bobber-stopper combination of fishing. Anyone? Much appreciated

Jigs? What about spoons? I know a lot of people like buck shots. I found that i missed a ton of fish using a bobber and stop. I think you should try a spring bobber tip. If you get the right one they can be adjustable to suit heavier lures such as a spoon.

On my bobber/dead stick rids, I love the Gem-N-Eye, its a cross between a spoon and a jig. Has the perfet amount of weight to keep the minnow down there, the perfect amount of flash and color. by far my go to for that type of rig.

If you want to use your ball head jigs in the winter you can hook them by the dorsal fin, tail or the mouth depending on the size and action you want. For me it works on lakes were I know that the fish have a preference for a certain color and there are time's it will out fish my jigging rod that I am using a spoon on.

I like Gem'M'Eyes for walleyes and perch under bobbers or on deadsticks.

Here's a link to a similar topic in the walleye forum, there's lots of good info in here

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
