#8 Tungsten Slab Spike (1)

3 Brothers Flies » Store » Ice-Flies » #8 Tungsten Slab Spike (1)

Spikes (mayfly nymphs) and scuds are a favorite food source for winter panfish. The Slab Spike, with its segmented body, rubber legs, and seductive chickabou tail, closely imitates a small mayfly nymph. Slab bluegills and crappies can get pretty finicky under the ice, and ice flies are sometimes the only way to hook mid-winter panfish. The tungsten gives it the speed of a jig, without loosing the finesse of the fly.

This highly productive technique utilizes ultra-quick sinking tungsten jigs in combination with realistic, imitative ice flies on the same line. You just can't beat the tantalizing movement and realism of an ice fly for slab bluegills or crappies through the ice. These flies often turn negative fish that reject the baited jig into biters, a situation common with finicky cold front panfish.   Anglers fishing with ice flies and the tight line technique will often out fish the guy using standard methods with just bait.
