Okay you drilled the hole, marked the fish on the Vexilar, now what? CATCH THEM. In nearly every situation a simple tungsten tear drop jig in 1/32 or 1/16 oz tipped with a wax worm or minnow is a guaranteed bite. But if live bait isn’t your thing, look for specifically designed ice plastics that are around or under an inch long and resemble natural food items for fish like bloodworms, leeches, smaller minnows, and more. A plastic with a lot of action when jigging is great for calling in fish from a great distance. For colors, don’t be afraid to go bright. A shiny gold jig or a classic white or pink jig are go-to choices and the plastic color to match rounds out your fish catching ensemble.
