How to lose ZERO jigs in the Detroit River

I take this….

Vexilar Flasher

…and put it on this!

Somebody was asking this morning on one of the walleye group pages on Facebook, just how many jigs people typically lose in a day while fishing the Detroit River.  My answer was zero, specifically because since I hooked up my Vexilar to the Minn-Kota  equipped with US2, I can see the bottom, and see the jig at the same time, just like ice fishing!  Vexilar sells the Adapter-Universal US2 that fits right into the existing connection wired on the Minn-Kota!

Trenton Channel/Detroit River

With your Vexilar rigged up on the boat, you can literally fish anywhere on the Detroit River, including the Trenton Channel without fear of losing any jigs. Think of all the time and even some money you will save by converting something you already have from ice fishing to something you already have on the boat for less than $25.00.  Just in the time spent trying to work the snag out, going to the box to get another jig, then threading on another minnow, putting on the stinger hook, getting set back up in the water, that’s a good 8-10 minutes, it really is an easy decision.
