Default Case Plastics

I want to thank all of you for the wealth of information that comes forth on this discussion board. I have just begun to get into fishing the river and your discussions have proven quite helpful. Brandyn, you are quite a fisherman and your posts have been great to read! Happy birthday!

I fished the Batavia dam yesterday and hammered white bass on a 1/8 oz. white jig head and 3 " white power grub but I was looking for smallies. I fished above and below and besides the white bass, didn't get much for 3-4 hours. I finally decided to rig up some of the Case plastics I bought as a direct result of reading Brandyn's posts. I first tried a pumpkin seed Helgie (only color Midwest had) and the first cast produced a little smallie. The second cast got me on one a little bigger. I got a few more throughout the day. It was the only bait I could get smallies on all day and I was grateful for the information.

Thanks again guys and, Brandyn, if you are ever looking for someone to fish with, I'm available most days as I bartend at me. I'd love to see you land one of those pigs!!! Also, what's the best way to rig and work the helgies and madtoms???

I rig the Helgies with just a regular jig head 1/16th ounce and hook it the same way you hook a twister tail. For the larger Helgies I prefer the 1/16th ounce jig heads with the longer hooks. You can find these at Cabelas.

For the Paddle Stiks I just use a simple texas rig or a plain hook with a spit shot and hook the Paddle Stik right in the nose.

Case Plastics are great, but there are other baits that work well also. I use Tubes, Twisters, and many others. Experiment and have fun.

Crankbaits are also a good choice.

Here is a picture of some ways to rig them.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.
