how about some pics of that setup.In my younger years I fished a lot with yo yos, but that is hard work. I have resorted to jig poles mostly and I love to use jugs madeup of a piece of small noodle about 8 inches long with a clothes hanger attached with mono line and a crappie hook about 2 to 4 ft long. Had a blast at Overcup last year using that rig. I fish Erling more than any other place and have not used this set up yet, but plan to this year. We catfish with jugs a lot there and do very well. I'm about ready for a mess of slabs. Try this set up, it's fun.
P.S. I lied, I trout fish more than I White Perch fish.:biggrin:
Same here John, except I usually use an open face reel and the spools can be changed which allows a 4 lb. test line on one spool and a 6 lb on the other one. I love that curly tail grub in Chartreuse or white.5 1/2' limber rod and an old well oiled zebco 33.....6lb line.....1/8th ounce flathead jig with chartruese 1" curlytail grub. Tight line or slow rolled!
As far as I can find they're legal. Problem is without high water where would you find a place to set them at Norfork ?Now realize that I fish deep, clear water.
Light action rod, I prefer a G Loomis
Small tube jig in your choice of bright color, I prefer pink with white skirt
Cast, and retrieve, slowly jerking it up and letting it fall back down
Works wonders on those ole slabs up here in Norfork!
You bottom boys can use your yo-yos, but I'm pretty sure us hill-folks aren't allowed such contraptions!
Yep, there was a guy I hunted with a couple weeks ago doing that! Would go out to look for a downed bird...and check the yo-yo's. :smack: :thumb:Setting out yo-yo's year a round is my favorite. I know guys that set out yo-yo's and duck hunt at the same time. Yea were in the Bottoms
