How Do You Rig Plastic for Ice Fishing?

Ice fishing is a special kind of fishing that requires special equipment and techniques to be successful. One of the most important pieces of equipment for ice fishing is the plastic lure, which is used to attract fish and entice them to bite. In order to rig a plastic lure for ice fishing, there are several steps that must be taken.

Step 1: Select the right type of plastic lure for your ice fishing needs. There are many different types of plastics available, so it’s important to choose one that will best suit your particular situation. For example, if you’re Targeting larger fish then you may want to select a larger sized plastic bait.

Step 2: Attach the lure to the line. This can be done by either tying it directly onto the line or by using a snap swivel. If you’re using a snap swivel, make sure that it is securely fastened onto the line before continuing on to step three.

Step 3: Rig the plastic lure properly for effective presentation in the water. This can be done by threading the line through one eye of the plastic lure, then looping it around and threading it through the other eye. Make sure that both eyes are securely attached to the line before continuing on with step four.

Step 4: Tie on a weight or jig head if needed. Depending on your particular situation, you may need to add a weight or jig head onto your line in order to make sure that your presentation is effective in deeper water or when Targeting larger fish species.

Conclusion: Rigging a plastic lure for ice fishing is an important step in making sure that your presentation is effective in attracting fish and enticing them to bite. By following these steps outlined above, you can ensure that your plastic lures are properly rigged and ready for success on your next ice fishing outing!
