Stupid jigging raps!

5 posts in this topic

Yesterday afternoon, I got out to Winnie, thinking this front would have 'em on the feed bag. Needless to say it was a tough bite for me and my 2 partners. The fish wanted nothing to do w/ my assorted spoon and minnow head combo. One of the other guys caught an 'eye on a small airplane type jig head and minnow, so I broke out the jigging rap. One the positive side, the fish were hitting it, but I lost 4 nice keeper sized 'eyes right at the hole. So I got the pliers out the cut off the front and back hooks, leaving only the treble and the bite was done.

I was curious to see other people's experience with the vertical (spoon) vs. horizontal (jigging rap) approach.

Were you able to see where (or how) the fish was hooked on the jiggin' rap?

if its a smaller rap then you need to bend the hooks or upsize. the gap is just to small

it didnt take too many losses at the hole with a jigging rap for me to clip the front and back hooks. of course, since then ive had a walleye nibble at a jigging rap that may have been hooked had the hooks been there. i saw it on my camera. so, who knows?

    • I know you are young and all but just because an entity calls itself Politifact, that is no guarantee that they are presenting unbiased facts.    http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-roff/2013/05/28/study-finds-fact-checkers-biased-against-republicans     There are plenty of lies occurring on a regular basis from both parties and for you to not see that is only a demonstration of your own bias.

    • Hi! I have never ice-fished and my parents are coming to visit from the east coast and told me they would love to try ice-fishing. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go as a novice? We have no equipment and so I was not sure if this is even a realistic thing to try. Any input on where to go (not too far from Grand Forks) and if there is a place that has equipment to rent would be greatly appreciated!   Thanks! Rachel
