#AskTheBuzz 013: Livebait vs Plastics, Eelpout 101, Hooking Minnows & Walleye Line w/ Brett McComas


Welcome to episode #13 of #AskTheBuzz!

On this episode, I sit down with Brett McComas and we answer the following question:

1:03 – Is live bait always better than spoons or plastics for panfish and walleye?
4:24 – It seems like eelpout have really been growing in popularity in recent years. For someone (like me) who’s never targeted them, how do I start? Location, presentation, best time of year, etc?
13:29 – What is the best way to hook a live minnow? Through the eyes, middle of the back, or the tail?
17:05 – What’s the preferred line strength for walleyes? Can you use heavier line like #10 or #12 if you’re using fluorocarbon?
