Same pattern as you described....timber and brush from 18-30' on 1/8 oz jig tipped with minnows. Didn't matter if they were alive or dead. Caught 8 on the same one. Cut my last minnow into 3 pieces to scratch out a limit. I tried a jig briefly but no takers.
Question for ya K ,was reading the r. bob reports. So when using minner on a jig. Are you using whole minnow or a part?? Hooking em in the lips? Iam am mostly a jig guy but Whatever it takes .
Thjanks may get up there on a weekday. Enjoyed the pics. When do we eat LOL.
