im gonna try using some waterdogs tonight for tigers ...im not quite sure how to rig them to keep them active and alive and even more important how long of a steel leader should I use ....
I like to rig them with a weedless hook (one with a light wire weedguard). Run the hook up from the bottm jaw and out the top jaw, then clip the weed guard closed. It keeps the 'dog on the hook, cuz that hole where the hook is will enlarge some as you fish. You can then "swim" the waterdog around in the vegetation as you prowl the bank. If I'm working waterdogs for pike or bass, I prefer to fish more actively than just hanging the bait from a float or plunking it down on the bottom. You can present the bait to a lot more fish that way. JMOfishinguitars said:im gonna try using some waterdogs tonight for tigers ...im not quite sure how to rig them to keep them active and alive
That should work. Good luck!!!fishinguitars said:I might just us a j hook and do the rubberband trick to keep the waterdog from getting off
You might have heard them called mud puppies. They are ugly, but harmless.TL said:Alright guys what the fu** are Water Dogs. I'm hoping I just call them something else. I'm assuming they are some sort of minnow.
