Crawlers in the winter?


Recommended Posts

I've never used them through the ice but I know that people catch a handful of suckers on them at the big jig ice tournament every year in Duluth and I have caught fish on Lake Superior fishing from shore with crawlers in the late winter when I'm sure the water temp is probably comparable to the lakes still covered in ice.

I use them extensively in the Summer for walleyes. I have always (except Rainy River in early spring) out produce people in same boat using minnows and leeches.

Saying that, I have tried them twice this winter and they did not produce compared to fat heads on LOW. On one trip this winter, I was catching 80 fishing a day. I tried for an hour with crawler on one and minnow on other. Minnow out fished worm 7 to 1.

I probably did not try long enough.
