Jason they are considered trash fish. You catch a bunch of them before you can catch a walleye but thats because they are trash fish and most everybody throws them back. Now we have and explosion on Gobi's little bait steelier s throughout the water column.
We called then sheephead with many more unpleasant descriptions.
I know I've read about folks bottom bouncing jigs out of boats in the Detroit River. I tied up a few Crawler Harness a couple years ago, but have never gotten around to using them. I do know that folks that are die-hard Crawler Harness rigs will keep a large stock of various color blades and beads so they can customize their rigs to meet local conditions.
Adding a stinger hook to a jig like that, almost sounds like a Quick-Strike rig used for Pike.
Allen; in my area; we bottom bounce jigs;; tipped with minnows;; but also; we use a stinger hook on them;; tie a section of line onto the jig; along with your rod line;; then tie on a small treble hook. hook the minnow thru the head; with the jig; then the treble hook; into tail section of the minnow;; gives a LOT better hook ups with sauger !!
I've got a friend on another forum, that fishes for 'eyes at sunset and the first couple hours after that. He usually catches fish on cranks or jigs (jigs are his own ties). The fish are usually within feet of the shoreline, so close that he can actually see their eyes glowing underwater.
I've only caught Saugers before. I will say that the Saugers hit a jig or minnow much harder than the Spotted (Kentucky) Bass that I was catching at the same time.
