What we have here is the Detroit River rig.
It’s basically just a ball-head jig, anywhere from 3/4 to an ounce or ounce and a half,
with a soft plastic and a stinger hook. A lot of times, we’ll tip this, when we have
cold water, below 50 degrees, with a minnow. All we’re doing is just bouncing this on the
bottom – just jigging it vertically. Really methodically. If we stay vertical, we’re going
to catch less snags, and that will really help the catch rate go up.
