Cool!

Cool!

 

I have some of the modern models with only a single hook. I forgot who made them. I used to use them religiously for pike through the ice. Now I've diversified quite a bit more.

 

They swim very well when jigged properly. smiley

That is pretty cool! This
That is pretty cool! This far south, I don't think I've ever seen one of those, but I've caught fish on more ridiculous things...

 

 

 

Let there be fire!

Cool!  Gotta love something

Cool!  Gotta love something scraped together and made out of a bullet casing.

Yeah I doubt they are popular in the south - up here airplane style jig/lures are most commonly used for ice fishing, which I'd guess there isn't much of down there...  I don't use them very often but they do look great darting around down there.  Maybe if I started ice fishing more lakes (rather than rivers and shallow backwaters) I'd fish them more.
