Rated 5 out of 5 by NJBass Not just limited to ice fishing!
If you like the looks of this lure but don't ice fish, well don't think that's all you can use it for! I don't ice fish, but I use this lure almost 90% of the time for crappie/light bass fishing. I like jigging under docks and in and around structure on ultralight tackle with 6lb. fluoro or mono. A 4'6" rod is perfect (I use a G. Loomis GL2), and a small spinning reel. Jig it fast, slow, deep, shallow, any way you want, and you are pretty much guarenteed to catch the attention of any panfish/bass in the area. I have even caught walleye, trout, and pickerel. I recommend the color silver, or gold/parrot for stained water. Tipping it with bait is optional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrianV Great for Pike and Perch
I've generally used this lure when ice fishing - the 'perch' colour is especially dangerous for pike. Seems they can't cruise anywhere near one of these without striking.
I've also had luck with perch on this rig. They strike fairly well without any baiting... stick a few maggots on it, and it performs quite well. Of course, when you bait it with eyes, you get a fish every drop.
These set very well; I've never lost a fish once on the hook.
Note: You may want to get one of the bigger variants of this lure. I've needed to do that to prevent smaller perch from taking it in. The bigger varieties are only really struck at by 'keepers' - 11" and bigger.
