Spinning jigs!

Recommended Posts

OK, I got kind of sick and tired yesterday while ice fishin watchin my little Rat Finke slowly spin with my camera! When the fish aren't aggressive, like yesterday, you can't have a spinning jig! What do you guys do to prevent this problem?? I sometimes put a little swivel up about a foot or so from the jig. That seems to help. I would add that I am using Okuma fly reels so as to help prevent twist in my line! I think my buddie has less twist problems using his old Schooleys!!

no if fishing gills when they do the sunnie swirl it puts line twist in the line. I like to put line on every few outings. I do not put as much line on as some. 70-90 feet is what I put on. I know I could get spooled by a pike, but it has not happened yet.

You can stretch your 1st 15 to what ever feet of line once in a while. Also a little tip jiggle often keeps a jig rocking on an up and down axis reducing spin with the horizontal type jigs.

Jigs will spin if the bait is unbalanced. If your maggots or waxies are to one side you can put a twist into the line with every jigging stroke. So after you stop jigging your line will untwist. Replacing line really helps.

I purchased a fly fishing leader straigtner and use it often. Like every three times I put the lure down the hole. It is two pieces of leather with rubber pads glued to the insides. Just run the line through the middle so it touches the rubber pads and it does wonders for line twist. Takes like 10 seconds to do. I purchased several in-line reels hoping to eliminate line twist, it helped a lot but doesn't eliminate it.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
