Another good reason to ban large, non-biodegradable plastic baits. Fish with a bellyful of plastic can't digest much real food, and so slowly starve to death. There are bio-degradable artificials out there--let's stick to them, at least in the larger sizes.i've only ever caught them incidentally. but i use to have a ''mystic minnow''made by excalibur. i had a perch pattern one , and i still have the clown. they're a suspending bait , and i caught a lot of trout on them. the last one i caught was a 10 inch speck on a 5.5 inch suspending plug!when i brought it in the plug was about 3 inches down it's throat!it was hooked badly so i brought it home , cleaned it up , to find a plastic worm in it's stomach that was quite old and probably about 7 inches long!that particular fish had quite an appetite. so to put a long story shorter.lol.a suspending plug , xrap , or husky jerk!
cool good see they are in there now I just gotta find emHey all,
I have had some success with countdowns and floating minnows but most of my fish have come on size 5 husky jerks. The big one from my profile pic took a silver and black husky jerk.
The fish is going to be on the canadian sportfishing show on april 16th if anyone is interested in checking it out (should be just before the 1st commercial).
