Swedish Pimple and Jiggin Spoons

Recommended Posts

Tip with a fathead (usually just head unless fish are very active). You have to let the fish tell you how they want it worked. My best technique seems to be more active (1' raise) until you can see them on the flasher and then slow it down to a slow jiggle or hop. If they don't like that you either need to change colors or the action. I have caught a lot of fish by just dropping it an inch or two when they are right on it.

I like to tip with a fathead then jig it hard to get fish in. When they are on the bait a slow jiggle will usually enice a strike, let the fish decide!

The swedish pimple, and Glow jigg'in spoons are one of my favorite walleye lures. Just use the head of a minnow, and jig it about a foot off the bottom. Depending on the size of the lure you can also have success with perch, crappies and northerns too!

Tip it with a minnow head and watch the flasher. Try different things and let the fish tell you how they want it.

Start with big lift and fall to bring them in. Then go more subtle and watch your flasher to see how they react.

I always like tip mine with a piece of meat like a fathead,rainbow chub or small shiner head. I like to jig it in 1/2" to 1" strokes and anywhere from 10" to 24" off the bottom. If there are no fish present on my flasher I will lift my lure up as far as I can go and jig it down just as a way to attract fish over but you would be surprised at how many fish will come and grab it on the drop. If you see one come in on the drop pay attention to your line in case it comes up you will not feel the bite but the loss of the weight of your lure. If that happens SET THE HOOK. I am always cautious of what my hands have come in contact with and if in doubt I will wash them especially if you just got done eating.

I like to run a plain hook instead of a treble.We use the small size for crappies and larger sizes for white bass and wipers.I tip them sometimes with plastics but run them naked most of the time.The fish tell you how they want it jigged most of the time.

I used to just tip with a minnow head but one time I was running low on minnows so started using tails, and even mid-section steaks put on the hook. To be honest, I never noticed much of a difference. Caught fish on all presentations.

What type of plastic do you use under the jigging spoon?

I have often thought of trying this, but not sure what would beat a minnow head! Would appreciate any ideas.

I caught lots of crappies and perch last year by tipping with Gulp maggots on the single hook.

I like to tip mine with waxies or sometimes wedgies when the fish are more active. A couple waxies works for well for crappies and perch. If I'm looking for walleyes I'll will usually use a minnow head or tail, but usually not the whole thing.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
