Best Minnesota Walleye Opener Tips & Advice (2023): The Northland Team shares a bunch of A+ tips that will help you catch more walleyes during the MN Walleye Opener this year.
Northland Fishing Tackle’s Tungsten Short-Shank Jig uses Northland’s legendary Short-Shank Fire-Ball® Jig design in a Tungsten offering. Molded from Tungsten which is 30% more dense than lead, this jig has a faster fall rate and less drag in the water. This allows anglers to use a lighter tungsten jig than typically used when fishing a comparable sized lead jig. In addition, the hardness of tungsten increases sensitivity and allows anglers to feel exactly what’s on the bottom. It features a premium short-shank wide-gap hook and dual bait keepers that lock on soft plastics and live bait. The Tungsten Jig comes in 3 size ⅛, ¼ and ⅜ and 8 colors. They are available 2 per card and 4 or 5 per card bulk packs
- Made from eco friendly heavy weight tungsten that is 30% denser than traditional lead jigs
- Tungsten’s hardness allows anglers better feel for bottom contact and lite bites
- Premium Mustad Ultra Point Short-shank wide gap hook and dual hook keepers lock on soft plastic and live bait
- Red “T” eyes easily distinguish tungsten
Northland Fishing Tackle® – EST. 1975
In 1975, a young Northwoods fishing guide named John Peterson started pouring jigs and tying tackle for his guiding clients in a small remote cabin in northern Minnesota. The lures were innovative, made with high-quality components, and most importantly were catching fish when no other baits were working! The word spread like wildfire, the phone started ringing for Team Northland®… and the Northland Fishing Tackle® brand was in hot demand!
