Not quite the talent as some of you doing the crank baits but I started tying my own worm harnesses this winter. We use them on Lake Erie and up in Canada fishing for walleyes. Here's a few that I got started with.

Snoot be more than happy to help you out.



Right off the top the best way I can describe using them is they are like the carolina rigs used in bass fishing, you can cast them, drift them or troll with them. Use crawlers, minnows or Gulp products with them and they catch fish. Just ask misty if they work

How do you use the two hook harness? Do you use two baits or one hook; one hook in the head and one hook in the tail

Front hook on the head rear hook on the midsection of crawlers and leeches. I made the singles for minnows. One thing you what to keep in mind is using a snap or barrel swivel to keep line twist to a minimum. Weights also to get your bait down depending on how deep you are fishing, you can use simple split shots, 3 ways with some of the same weights used for drop shotting or bottom bouncers/walkers, main thing is to be in contact with the bottom unless you are fishing suspended fish then you use the countdown method.



Hope this helps



Thanks Rapala!

They look Great!!!!





Are these harnesses sometimes called "Cats paw"?? I've heard guys around here say they catch walleye on a Cats paw.
