Gosh it has been a while since I went fishing, but I always just used a rod & reel baited with minnows. We might have to set up a fishing trip this spring. :biggrin:

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:

I mostly fish with yoyos or troll with a minnow or small beetle spin.

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.

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!

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 ?:confused:

I had never seen yo-yos until I started dating (and married) a fella from the bottoms. I just assumed they were illegal since I'd never seen my dad or any of my uncles use them in my entire life.

I have seen limb lines so yo-yos would work in those place.

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:

We (my Father-in-Law, Brothers-in-Law and me) run yo-yos when we can, jig most of the time with jiggin poles, but have also been known to troll (me moreso with my buddies). Whichever method is bringing in the fish, is the method we'll use!
