Meat Rig Substitute


Recommended Posts

I know this is a forum for more Lake O fishing, but I have a theory. Since the main food source on lake Huron is emerald shiners, does anyone know how I would do if I were to catch some creek shiners that I like to use for pike and bass, but after they died I would cut them up and run them on the meat rig. They are pretty hefty sized and they stink like Chinook that's for sure.

I would give it a try. Back in the mid 90s'  I bought a bag of frozen cleaned smelt from the local supermarket, split one down the middle, and jammed it in a Rhys Davis meat head. Ran it clean off the rigger in early August.... largest king of my career @ 34 lbs.  Lots of options out there. ( I still use the smelt) :lol:

I would think there would be more scent in the wild unfrozen shiners, I'll have to give it a try then. Huge king!
