... a mouse trap rig sounds like what I would call a bottom bouncer w/leader, only your 4 feet off bottom with 35 feet of leader, me 18” and 5’ leader.
Those rods look nice.Are they one piece or 2 or something else?
Do you run 2 speed reels? After thinking about shallow being 100 feet and those monsters I’m sure you do.
Gamakatsu hooks? I think they are the sharpest. They will stick into your thumbnail.
I make all my own ice fishing lures but 64/ounce and #8 trout shanked hooks...
