Kids and White Bass.

Posted on Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Our featured images show’s off Isabella Kumar’s White Bass she caught fishing the Detroit River, ON recently. White bass make their annual runs in May/June of each year entering rivers & marina harbors in big numbers. The rest of the year mot of them are free-roaming the open lakes feeding voraciously primarily on baitfish.

Many anglers recognize how good these fish are to eat and fun to catch and literally line-up the shorelines intercepting them as they make their annual run.

This is an excellent fish to target if you’re family fishing and especially if you have young anglers. This was Isabella’s first time fishing for them and she had no trouble catching one after another using a jighead rigged with a Fin-S Fish plastic grub. Spinners, spoons and even small crankbaits and minnow imitating baits work well for them. If it looks like a baitfish, White Bass will “smash” it!!

Jig configurations for Walleye.

Posted on Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Some anglers may thing that a jihead is a jighead, that it’s only function is to drop to the bottom. Well, if you appreciate “hydrodynamics” you soon realize that different shape jigheads produce very different results when they are dropping to the bottom. Let me explain the difference in four of my favorite jig-heads.

1.Round jig-head – This is a standard in jig-fishing and excellent for all round plastic grubs. A round jighead drops relatively fast with a vertical drop and is ideal to fish with action-tail plastic grubs like twister-tails and paddle-tails.

2.Flat jig-head – One of my favorite “flat” jig-heads is the Fin-S Fish Jig-head by Lunker City. It’s flat configuration drops at a slower speed and helps to “plane” the soft-plastic grub from side to side creating a very natural “injured-minnow” imitation. Excellent to use in shallower water and out of the current where an anglers desired to keep the jig in the “strike-zone” for a longer period of time.

3.Sculptured flattened, pointed head-jig – These jigs are designed to fish in heavier weigths for deeper-water applications and also for current fishing. Good example are the Domo’s Custom  Jig. These drop fast and cut the water on the drop and also when jigged vertically in faster currents enabling the angler to keep in contact with the bottom even up to currents of 3-4mph and depth of over 30′.

4.Football jig-head – This configuration is excellent for deeper water application in the larger weights and also allows the plastic grub tail to stick-up from the bottom. Ideal when targeting fish in deeper water and also were an anglers wants the tail of the plastic grub to stick-up off the bottom often producing strikes even when stationary.

Fin-S Fish, Detroit River Walleye.

Posted on Monday, June 18, 2018

I just came back from shooting a 1/2 hr Walleye TV show on the Detroit River, ON and also covering the 16th Annual ICHA Handicapable Fishing Derby. Both were a great success.

We had several friends join us on that trip and all of them had a chance to also enjoy the great Walleye fishing the river has to offer. The Walleye fishing is so good right now that we were able to produce a TV show in 2 1/2 hrs. fishing!

The lures that caught all of the fish were the Lunker City Fin-S Fish. Our good frined Michael Kumar asked me what he should stock-up on before the trip and I said just find 4″ long Fin-S Fish and get some 5/8 oz. jigheads, that’s all you need. He ended up fishing with his wife Roma, his daughter Bella and good friend Americo.

They all caught fish and fast! If you have not tried fishing the Fin-S Fish, you should really give them a trip, they work well for all species of fish that feed on smaller fish all year long!!
