Final Fishing Opener Tip: What Bait To Use

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 2013 fishing opener is nearly here.

For tips on what it’ll take to snag winners, guide Steve Carney shares his insight.

“A standard jig is good for normal part of the season, but this time of the year I’m going to use a bait that’s very small,” Carney said. “This has a very long shank on it.”

Another rule is don’t just fish for walleyes — pan fish can be fun and found with the same presentation.

“Everybody thinks of a crank bait as five, or six inches long,” Carney said. “But this is a tiny bait. I want an option for crappies, too.”

As for the weighty issues of sinker size, take note.

“Most anglers put a great big heavy boot-type weight on it,” Carney said. “I don’t want that. I want something very light, something that’ll pull through vegetation.”
