Thanks Cap! What type of jig would you recommend to make a 4″ minnow weedless. We fish in an area with a lot of underwater structure and lily pads. Any suggestions?

THANK YOU!!! Subscribed! Soooooooooooooooooooo damned refreshing to see some real and useful information detailing so many different ways to rig soft baits without all the bias hype from pros trying to push a new lure and setup…or worse having to listen to 10 minutes of their fishing stories and opinions to get one second of valid info. I’ve fished for 40 years and I learned many new things from your video…. Thanks again!

Do you have any tips for wading, I’ve been wading and I haven’t had any success

Mimi Le says:

Hi Cap’n,
Love your video tutorial! You make it look so easy to rig the soft plastics.. but I have a lot of trouble bending them enough to get the hook to come through at the right spot on its back… and as a result the hook ends up deeply buried in the soft plastic. Don’t know if that makes sense to you… but do you have any tips to help?
Thanks 🙂

Matthew Mackenzie says:

thanks for the info. I’ve been fishing the flats alot from my kayak. been quite successful with rat l trap and mr17. but the grass is everywhere now. been told using a weedless soft plastic is the way to go. Haven’t had much luck so I usually put it down quickly. going out today with nothing but soft plastics. I’m going to force myself to learn it
