Just tried a different set-up (for me) for trolling for the 'eyes. I had been using crawlers and minnows, which I stil use, but wanted to try something different.
I put on a Chartruese jig head, tied right to the line, and on that I put a smoke colored with silver specs artificial thing, with a "skirt" on the front, and twin curly tails on the back. All of this topped off with these being "garlic Flavored".
The first time I tried it, I also had my live bait on another rod. The two other guys in the boat were both using artificial lures. I had caught a keeper size 'eye, and had several hits, while my crawler and the other tow guys didn't even get a strike
Garlic must be a good thing!! Rich
