BIG river ‘eyes running…

Speaking of river fish, look at all those stumps on the Maumee! Oh…wait….

…but bigger girls in lakes.

Guy on WalleyeCentral said Shivers don’t produce like Rapala Jigging Raps, Gary Parsons answered:


> For open water the strong point is that they are a casting bait more than a vertical bait. If you fish them like Al [Lindner] does the Jigging Rap, you’ll be disappointed. If you cast them like you would a Hopkins Spoon, you’ll have far greater success.
> If you are a talented jig fisherman and fish them like jigs, you’ll struggle. If you cast them and sweep the bait and let it fall on slack line you’ll catch fish.

Interesting. Another example of two lures looking similar but not (Jigging Rap on top).


World’s most dangerous sport?



Pike toss?

Tip of the Day


In this case the Northland Impulse Paddle Shad. Do it slow at home so you can do it fast in the boat. If you don’t know Eric, he used to be a pro angler — for sure knows his stuff:
