Jig Riggin'
Bass Pro Shops
Try these jig-and-plastic tips.
0 Bass Pro Shops

Jigs-and-plastic account for more walleyes than all other artificials combined. Yet they can be even more effective with a little extra attention to detail:

  • Rig curlytails tail-down when tipping with live bait, tail-up otherwise.
  • More hook gap, more hookups. Always "skinhook" your plastics to maximize the gap.
  • Try adding a bright red plastic bead ahead of the jighead; it may trigger an "instinct" bite or two.
  • Use 2 tails for a beefier profile -- 1 standard rig plus 1 nose-hooked rig.
