Ice Fishing Tips -Check your local regulations! > Ice Fishing Live Baits and Plastics

Spikes, Waxies etc .

<< < (6/7) > >>

boss j:
spikes are a thick skined, about 1/2-3/16 long grub. waxxies are about 3/4-1 inch soft skined grub. both work well. i like waxxies, they dont last as long on the hook because they are softer but imo they put out alot more scent and with a larger profile are easier for the fish to see. i have to rebait my jigs often but the fish go on the ice faster...

I used mousies years ago when I started fishing because they were cheap. I remember them being a lot smaller than the ones in the pic. We kept them in a small plastic cup with saw dust and a top and carried them in a shirt pocket inside your jacket to keep them warm and alive. I would keep them on a shelf going down the basement in our house, my mom came upstairs one day asking "where did all these fly's come from?" That's when I learned where mousies came from.

[I got some preserved wigglers and they turn to mush.Was using them from my boat for crappie in spring.Hard to keep on hook.Waste of about $30 to have them sent to me.Even kept them on ice./quote]
