|My order came today. I am impressed with your service.
I am not going fishing any time soon but none the less it was nice to get them so quickly. Everything looks great, no disappointments!
Thanks Denny, February 2012
|I forgot to mention, those jigs (Colorado) I bought from you were snag proof! I can't
remember losing a one of them. The lake bottom up there are covered with boulders, so you're always bouncing around the rocks. Was quite a relief not to have to re-tie often.
Only jig lost was the one I gave to my friend. He kept it.

What colors should I use?
We have always stuck with the old wives tale and it works well for us.
Bright days use bright colors, cloudy days use dark colors,
stained water use orange, red, chartreuse, pink and white.
Clear water use nickel, brass, blue, black, green and purple.
What size of blade should I use?
The smaller blades such as Colorado #3,
and Dakota #1
do the best in cool and clearer water because
walleyes require less intense vibration. The larger blades
such as Colorado #4, Indiana #3, Dakota #2 and
Willow #3 are more effective in low clarity warm water because
more vibration and flash are required to attract attention.
What type of blade should I use?
Each blade design makes its own unique sound, which is picked
up by the walleye's lateral line, ultra sensitive nerve endings
along each side. Because popular blades such as the Colorado
and Indiana are so widely available in stores, people tend to
think they are the only blades to use. Although those blades
are very effective, we suggest going to the Willow, Tomahawk
or Dakota when you are on to non-aggressive walleye or over
fished areas. Sometimes the change of music is enough to
trigger the walleyes to bite. The Dakota blade is our personal favorite.
When should I use Live Bait Rigs?
Live Bait Rigs consist of a hook and an attractor bead or a
float and are really effective during cold fronts or cooler
weather such as in early spring and late fall. We like a slow
presentation pulled behind our Spoonbill Bouncer
or Walking Sinker. The Live Bait Floater Rig can be deadly once you
have discovered suspended walleye - it puts the bait right
in the strike zone!
How do I use the Colorado Jig?
The Colorado Jig was an idea I came up with in 1990 for my friends
who didn't like to jig fish. When fishing for walleye, we drifted
a large percentage of the time. So I thought we needed a jig with
a wider base to keep the hook up at all times - it was an immediate
success! I favor the Rattl'n Colorado Jig when vertical jigging
because of the way it erratically drops with a sound that wakes
up even lock jawed walleye. When we drift fish with two rods each,
I always have a Colorado Jig on one of them and usually baited with
two minnows. Now jigging isn't just in the spring and fall, you
can use this jig all year round - even through the ice!
