Fishing Heavy Jigs, Light Jigs and Jigs In-Between on the Edge and Beyond!
I’ve lost hundreds of jigs over the years. I would tie on a 3/8th ounce jig, add a minnow, drop it down and get snagged. I’d try to free it loose, bust the line, tie on another 3/8th ounce jig, snag it up and start all over again. The problem was that sometimes I wouldn’t snag right away, I would actually catch a walleye, so I knew the 3/8th ounce jig just HAD to be the right weight so there was no reason to try anything different. Finding the right jig weight In a river, fish can be caught in a lot of different areas. It’s all related to river depth and current speed. In low water a …

​Blade Baits and Spoons are Hot Right Now!
Blade Baits and Jigging Spoons are the overlooked lures in your tackle box, they are just not very glamorous! But if you are a river fisherman or fish power plant cooling lakes in Illinois and other states you need to have a good selection of each and use them right now. When the open water season starts and the water is cold, it’s that time when the vibration of blade baits and drop speed of jigging spoons create a motion that walleye, sauger, white bass, striped bass, wipers, smallmouth and catfish can't resist!

My discussion with Chekai Here are some excerpts from my recent long distance phone interview with this dynamic dynamo desig …

Ice Fishing Tackle, You Better Have a Back-Up Plan!

Ice Fishing Tackle, You Better Have a Back-Up Plan!
If all you are catching is little fish...you better have a back-up plan! I’ve learned a lot over the years on the hundreds of ice fishing adventures that I’ve been on, but nothing is more important to fishing success than having a back-up plan. Reason being, a fish's moods will change from day to day, their location changes, their feeding time varies and they just get downright ornery. Because of all this and of course Murphy’s Law (anything that can go wrong, will go wrong)...you need a back up plan every time you go ice fishing. I’ve done it all, once I left my minnow bucket full of …
