I have been out to Finger Lake the past couple weekend for my first ever ice fishing trips (Why didnt I start this sooner??) Anyways, we were catching a bunch of little guys using single hooks and shrimp. I want to get some of those hogs but not sure what works best. I See a lot of guys talking about tube jigs but all I can find at Sportsmans is larger ones, like 4" that fit over the large weighted hook...but that hook is huge! Am I looking in the wrong area, or is that what you guys use?
I did manage to catch a couple in the 17"-18" range fishing in about 6 feet of water 15 feet from shore, our tip-ups in the 30ft water were getting no love...do those rainbows and char like the shallower spots?
P.S. I searched around the forum a bit and couldnt find a good thread answering this question yet.
