Groundwater can well up from the depths of a lake and melt the ice. So don’t set out on the ice too early this ice fishing season.  

River Fishing Rig

June 5, 2013 | Categories: Fishing Tips

When river fish use snag infested areas, don’t fret. Snap-Loc® is here. Tie the river rig with a three-way swivel with your line attached to one end in line with a three foot leader and your bait. Run a lighter dropper to a look knot and a Snap-Loc®. So you only lose the weight if you hang up. Loop knots also ease weight changes to reduce lost sinkers.

When your hook is on a long leader and you want to be sure it doesn’t get hung up on the bottom, just add a small round bobber or cork.
