Reducing snags and preventing weeds from piling up on your bait can be accomplished with some simple strategic rigging and can greatly increase your efficiency on the water let alone saving you from losing your bait cast after cast. Guide “Bro” Brosdahl shows a strategic double hooked minnow method to accomplish weedless rigging with a live minnow on any jighead. Double hooking your minnows this way will allow you to fish walleye in heavier cover with ease and can keep your jig baited a lot longer when jigging aggressively or pounding bottom as well.

Holding the minnow upside down, thread the hook through the mouth and come out the belly. Then, push the collar of the jig head into the mouth and turn the jig bending the minnow body at an angle to push the hook back up and through the belly so that the end sits hidden inside the minnow just behind the head. Not only does this give a weedless bait effect, but also gets the hook back a bit further into the bait for shorter biting fish and streamlines the profile to make it that much more natural and enticing for a strike.
