Have you ever noticed when Jigging you’re getting lots of fish and bites and then all of a sudden nothing bring it up no minnow head but your other Jig rap or spoon is still getting hits . That will Purtee much tell you minnow head or not
Speaking of Minnows, coming up Saturday or Sunday and was wondering about Cox's Bait and Tackle shop since I'd drive right by it on my way. Hours, decent minnows Y/N? Only info I could find on several websites was open 6am which is about perfect but couldn't confirm. I could get them around here today but they would be crappie minnows and would rather have the larger shiners and fresher in the morning anyways. Just never been there. Thanks.
Iv started using Salmo lures and other similiar lures quite a bit...no bait/minnow/minnow head, And have had just as much success. I will agree w the scent of bait being an attractant, but if u have a lure that has a stand alone awesome presentation it can b pretty deadly! Its nice not to worry about gettin bait.
I never use bait on my jigging rapals in the river and I catch fish all the time.Last night at the mouth I caught 7 fish and my smallest one was 17 inches and the biggest one was 26 inches. Black and silver works the best for me #7
Yesterday when we had fish staring at the lure for a while and not taking it we would pull up and find that we no longer had a minnow. re-tipped and the bite would continue. (however open water season I never have had to tip. I just use plastics in the boat)
