    Instead of waiting for the fish to hook itself have you ever tried sort of snagging the fish while you see it biting?
    Works pretty good for me.

    On the last lake "not dugan" that we fished (same lake as myself and Tranq snowshoed in to)... I found a light jigging does work. I was basically friggin around when I caught mine... as was the case the last time time out.

    However... however on "Dugan" Lake, I use a full raw white prawn (ideally un-peeled) and the fish will chew on the bait before actually "hitting" it. So you have to wait for the take longer than usual. Frickin picky fish anyways.

    After rocking "Dugan" for so long, I've noticed I have developed habits of not touching my rod until there's a for sure hook up.

    Also back to the point of using a huge piece of bait, I rock a size 2 or 1/0 hook. So I have to bet on whether I have the hook sticking out the tail, head or mid section. I'm basically dangling a cut plug set up with only one hook.

    yeah I’ve had some pretty picky fish aswell, the main thing for me was whenever I would wait for the fish to hook itself a lot of the times it would swallow the hook deep down the throat and would be a pain is the a$$, so I tried jigging and now every one I catch is on the upper lip nice and easy.
