    Ziggy (or Ziggie?) Lure Question

    Ok guys,

    What in the heck is a Ziggie Lure? I have just been on two different resort websites (one an Eagle Lake, ON site and the other a Pipestone Lake, ON site) each recommending Ziggy (or Ziggie) baits for open water trolling.

    I am taking a trip to Pipestone in 3 weeks, and plan to spend the majority of musky time doing lots of deep water trolling. So has anybody here ever used these baits? Positive or negative feedback you can provide? What's the depth curve on these things?

    Just visited the Ziggie bait website. Apparently they are popular out East (St Claire), but I had never heard of them until just now. Was unable to find any depth curve info on the website.

    Can anybody here provide me with more info?

    Thanks in advance,
    "Jackpot" John Schroeder

    Awesome baits, great action, quality, they are a go-to for us on Green Bay as well, we always have a few of these in the spread. Mostly the 8 and 10 inch models in both straight and jointed.

    As far as a running depth, I do not know. I do know they get deep, fast. We typically dont run our baits very deep out there, as we are often trolling very shallow flats, using the planer boards to keep the baits much shallower than they want to run.

    RE: Ziggy (or Ziggie?) Lure Question

    I troll at 3.9 to 4.3 knots. Here is what I know about my lures and their behavior. For every 10 feet of line in the water the lure will sink 1 foot at 4 knots. So at 40 feet of line in the water it will sink 4 feet. When I troll I use a 10 foot fluorocarbon leader with a snap swivel on one end which is attached to the main line and only a snap for the lure. At the junction of the main line and leader I attach a 1 inch length ball chain with ball swivels on both ends, with one end attached to the split ring of the main line the other end for ball sinkers to adjust the lure depth. For every 2 ounces I add the lure will sink an additional 1 foot.

    So 30 feet line at 4 knots no weight 3 foot lure depth
    30 feet line at 4 knots 2 ounces 6 foot lure depth
    30 feet line at 4 knots 4 ounces 9 foot lure depth

    Also the chain and sinker act as a weed guard
