    Im sure tons of you do this already, but while out fishing recently i thought of a new way to rig minnows. Get a fist full of 1-2inch minnows and hook them all on the hook through their back ends. When in the water they release tons of scent and all pull franticaly in every direction..attracting attention. worked GREAT for me.

    I've done this before with good results. If I can't get any decent sized baitfish, I'll hook several small shad together on a hook. I'll cut one to release some scent.

    It doesn't hurt to stomp on a couple of them either. I mean it doesn't hurt me. The minnows may not agree.

    Iv'e ran multiple minnows on multiple hooks before, but I never thought of trying them on one hook. I'll have to give that a try.
    Thanks,
