Default Lindy rig

Has anyone found a plastic that even comes close to live bait on a lindy rig? I ran out of worms yesterday after catching a few dozen walleye and tried a couple small black and green twister but no takers.

The gulp minnow grubs have been producing pretty good for me. A great alternate to a leech I think. The gulp leech sucks as it has no action, but the minnow grubs have great action. They get chewed up pretty quick. They are $6 for a 25 pack, about the price as two dozens leeches. It was all I used Sat. morning and slammed smallies on them, caught eyes last weekend at Bonny on them as well.

Tie some line off the rig and put a rapala or mister twister on it. I've caught smallies like that.

I just found out that gulp makes a night crawler thats worth a try. Its nice to have a back up when the bait runs out. Now if I could just find the wiper, I've only caught hand full of those this spring, can't wait for the top water action.

Plastic worms work just as good and their much more durable.

I agree with EyeHunter, the Gulp products have worked very well for me also. I hardly ever use live bait much anymore, minnows in particular, but thats just because its a pain in the but for me to drive halfway across town just to get them.

Had a contest with my son at the beginning of June. He fished for cats with Gulp nightcrawlers and I used the real deal. I caught 4 small cats, all under 5 pounds and he caught 6 cats between 4-6 lbs. He won $20 on that bet.

I have run into this situation more than a few times, and I just tear the tail off of purple ribbon tailed plastic worms and they seem to work just as well. I actually decided to do this when i was fishing with my brother who doesnt fish very often and he wanted to go home, but I convinced him that the tails of platic worms worked just as well eventhough I didnt really know, but i didnt want to go home, and it worked.
