“Panfish Phil” gives up the ghost for catching fish of all species with Custom Jigs & Spins’ Demon
Coralville, IA (December 5, 2014) – So many lures. So many species. But only so much time. The fact is, all too many ice anglers spend more time “fishing” with their lure out of the hole rather than in the strike zone; all the while nipping and numb-fingering different jigs rather than just tying on a confidence bait in the first place.
But not “Panfish Phil” Laube. He always has his favorite jig laced up and ready to roll... er, wiggle, waggle and wobble that is.
So what's the go-to jig for this Northern Minnesota panfish expert? Why, only one of the most well-known jigs on the market since late 1970s – the vertical-oriented Custom Jig & Spins' Demon.
“It's the Demon's unique beetle shape, vertical orientation, and great color schemes that make it stand out from other jigs. And the available glow finishes are the brightest and longest-lasting in ice fishing,” says Laube. “My dad turned me on to the Demon years ago. It’s all he uses ‘cause they just plain catch fish. And that appeals to my A.D.D.! I need to catch a lot of fish to keep me focused. All I know is it's a numbers game when I use a Demon.
“It's my confidence bait, for sure.”
And now that we've revealed Panfish Phil's top 'gill-catchin' contender, you'll want to check out the video to see exactly what he means. Phil covers the maneuvers he makes to call in fish of all species from afar. And notice Phil’s preference for nipping waxworms over larvae on the Demon’s razor-sharp hook – “I like to pop ‘em and let a little of their juice out to create a scent trail. Plus, that floppy action is deadly on big ‘gills.”
All this … and more!
