I have never gotten into live bait rigging. When I fish live bait it’s usually a leech under a slip bobber or a jig/minnow deal. I’ll be fishing a lake this summer where I’m reading that rigging is the key presentation. If you were in my position and you were headed out to scheel’s or wherever, what would be in your cart? I want to keep it kind of simple. Don’t need thousands of beads and blades in every imaginable color. Been thinking it might make sense to just buy a handful of pre-tied snells, but even then I get to the store and the variety is overwhelming. Help me get started?
Fwiw this is a relatively clear and deep shield lake with primarily boulder and rock bottom.
