Do you love big bluegill?
does anyone have a how to, on making ice jigs or pin minnows, they could share?
This would be an interesting subject o monitor. Bass chasers use ice jigs quite a bit for deep water during winter on stacked fish. I have 4 from Northland. Very effective during days that are cold before the winter hits, when the fish are slightly finicky..
Of course, I don't have the human power to row all over the lake to chase after stacked fish. I can strap on the 55lbs thrust motor, but my battery would be dead in 2.5 to 3 hours.
you can buy pieces parts for making your own at net craft . its is a little tedious if you have big honky fingers like mine but ido get some made . its always fun to catch fish on your own baits
Thanks Ron, I have big hands, I wear size 16 ring. I will checkout net craft
Ive seen tutorials on YouTube and the internet, so they exist. A little research would surely lead the way.
I use gold hooks - solder does not adhere to bronze hooks. I found a tiny set of knock-off Vice-Grips at a craft shop that I use to hold the hook in place on the jig "spoon" while I apply a drop of solder.
Use a small diameter "flux-core" solder sold for use in electrical circuit-board type soldering. The net craft folks sell an excellent solder that must have some silver in the mixture because it stays shiney. I use their solder as well as the stuff I buy at the local hardware store. If you are painting the jig, you don't need to worry about a dull solder surface on your finished jigs.
Try searching for micro jigs for some ideas.
