    Default My favorite Big Lake set up: The Dodger and Jig Rig

    photo-9%u00252520copy.JPG

    I always seem to get a few questions about the dodger and jig set up I use on Big Lake. So I decided to make a blog post on my personal blogs that talks a little bit about my rationale for using it.

    There's no doubt it is super effective for me, but for me the fact something works, isn't good enough. I want to know why it works and if it can be improved upon. It's a work in progress because I want to edit some video to show what I am talking about.

    My secondary lure I use are large spoons 4 to 5 inches long. Favorites come and go with my current go to spoon being a 4 or 5 inch Doctor Spoon. You also can't go wrong with the krockadile spoons.

    But any input, ideas, modifications are not only welcome, but VERY MUCH appreciated!

    Great article, it makes a lot of sense. I'm fairly new to the jigging-style of fishing. I'm from the south where some chicken liver on the bottom of a lake is really all you need. I'll have to give it a shot though and see how it works.

    I employ the same technique for all species of fish, but at a smaller scale. As stated earlier, this is a very effective technique for all species.

    Do your top spoons ever get hit? If I were a fish, I'd hit the shiny things!

    Some days they do some days they don't. Depends on the mood of the fish. If they do, they will whack them one or two times and then hit whatever offering is below. Either way, it definitely helps to get the fish worked up.

    Sweet. I was going to ask the same thing. But the extra "fish" definitely seems to up the activity level! Cool!!

    On lakes where multiple hooks are allowed, do you have hooks on both spoons?

    No hooks on the upper spoon. It's considered an attractor. Even if you were using one rod in a multiple hook area, you cannot fish two lures with hooks, two spoons with hooks, or two jigs with hooks on the same line. If fishing with one rod in a multiple hook area, you may use two hooks, two flies, or one lure with no more than two hooks on that lure, such as an airplane jig. If using two rods in a multiple hook area, you may use one lure with one hook on that lure or one multiple hook per rod.

    Great article. I am really interested to hear how you like the hook above the flasher! Please give us an update when you try it out. I'm going to have to try this setup soon.
