Rig It Tuesday with Russ Lane:  Featuring a Big Bite Baits Real Deal Craw in sprayed grass on a swing head football jig on 16 pound Sunline Sniper.

Rig It Tuesday with Russ Lane:

BAIT: 4" BigBite Real Deal Shad

RIG: 1/2oz chatter bait with RD Shad trailer

ROD/REEL/LINE: 7ft medhvy Castaway Skeleton/6:1/20lb Sunline Sniper FC

APPLICATION: Slow roll this rig around and over the top of submerged vegetation. When the rig hangs in the grass snap it free to generate reaction strikes. This is a deadly technique for late fall/early winter on lakes with hydrilla, millfoil and coontail. The large profile and realistic action of the RD Shad perfectly mimics a gizzard shad which big fish love to eat. Add a shad colored skirt if the water is stained.

Rig It Tuesday with Russ Lane:

BAIT: Big Bite Coontail, Tilapia color, dye the tail chartreuse

RIG: attach a Coontail worm to a swinging jig head. This is the original Biffle Head. Match the weight of the head to the depth that you are fishing. This is a 1/2oz which would be good out to 15ft deep. This is a great rig for just about any time of year. Make long cast and use a slow but steady retrieve while maintaining contact with the bottom. This technique is very similar to fishing a crank bait but you retrieve about half as fast. Usually when a fish bites this rig he will be coming toward you so use a long sweeping hook set to take up any slack that you may have in your line.
