Mooneye, Gizzard Shad

Recommended Posts

Pretty much looking to get some catfishing bait. I got plenty of spots for getting my creek chubs and suckers and bullheads but was wanting to try mooneye and gizzard shad also. I live right along the sippi within 10 min of a big lock and dam. Ive heard the dams were honey holes for these fish. Whats the best methods for cathcing them on hook and line. Or is it worth my time?

Im thinking sabiki rigs would work great in an eddy section of the tail race waters at the dam. Anybody try this for mooneye before?

sabiki rigs would be illegal in MN. only one lure or hook per line. three flies may be used to fish for trout, crappie, sunfish, and rock bass. i believe that means fly fishing only. not spin/fly (using a non fly fishing rod) i may be wrong.

but if you are going to try fly fishing. go two nymphs, on the first 2 flies. and then a streamer such as a clouser on the last one.

spinners work well. like a mepps. white is killer. pull it through the eddys/ slack water on the edge of current.

As per the new regulations:

Hooks, Lures and Tackle Configurations

Single Tackle Configuration. Anglers may use up to three single or multiple pronged(example - treble) hooks on a line used as a single tackle configuration attached to the end of a fishing line (Examples – crawler harness, quick-strike rig. Note: a single tackle configuration cannot be used on designated trout streams and lakes.

- The total length of the single tackle configuration from the first hook to the last hook must be nine inches or less.

- This single tackle configuration is not considered an artificial fly or lure/bait, and no additional hooks may be used. Adding a bead, blade, or spinner does not make it into an artificial lure/bait.
