I always use jigs with a grub
For panfish, all I use are tear drop jigs tipped with a wax worm. And as for pickerel, just get medium shiners and put them on a tip-up. Leave them about a foot or two off of the bottom.
I ALWAYS USE LIVE MINIS HOOKED MID WAY DOWN THE TAIL WIT A BOBBER
mouses, waxes, minnows, and a assortment of teardrops, and even some swedish pimples does the trick!
wax worms for panfish and shiners for about every thing else can get the job done
wax worms were cathin blugill and crappies for me on wensday. but be sure that u keep changing jigs until u find the right one for that day. also be sure to keep changeing depths and jigging motion, they may want it jigged fast, on the down fall, or sitting on the floor of your shack. and as always good luck
whatever sized shiner is appropriate for the fish your targeting on the smallest jig to reach the desired depth, also jigs tied with marabou has been succesful in the past
The tube jig with mini tail is great for jigging, caught right at 75 the other day. Only kept 20 tho. Gotta love perch jerkin. Blue and white or red and chartreuse or however its spelled
