Live bait river tackle
« on: October 07, 2019, 09:43:13 AM »
I fished the Susky for the past 10 years or so with artificial lures BUT recently switched to fishing crawlers and shiners on the bottom.  I am really enjoying fishing this way and catching a lot bigger fish.  I've learned a little bit along the way... upsized my gear a few sizes... using a 3-way swivel, a dipsy sinker and 2 big hooks.  I have 2 heavy Ugly stiks that work pretty good.  Thinking of putting Penn Battle 2's (4000 size) on both of them for next season. 

Been catching channel cats, flatheads, bass, some eels, couple carp.  Hoping to perhaps hook a walleye or pike.  This season is almost done but I want to hit it hard in the Spring!

Looking for advice of any kind from folks who fish live bait.  What kind of main line and leader do you use for what applications?... stuff like that.
