6/29/10 Twitchin' And A Rippin'

Twitch baits come in all shapes and sizes and every angler has his or her own way to work them. For me, it's all about fast rips with the rod tip and throwing slack into the line between rips. It's all about finding a speed and cadence that trips their trigger.  It's all about catching a big fish off guard and taking advantage of it's instincts. If you can make contact with weeds and rocks it's even more effective. This is my favorite presentation for June fishing for Muskies, Pike and Walleyes. It's my best multi-species presentation by far. Especially for above average Walleyes, numbers of Pike and finicky, neutral Muskies. Shallow Raiders, Suicks and Magnum Bomber Long-A's for Muskie and Pike. Long-A's and #14 Huskie Jerks shine for both Pike and Walleyes. It's an in-yo-face, multi-species presentation that can really put some quality fish in the boat when little else will.
