Expert Tip: Make the Mosquito - A Worm Harness

Expert Tip: Make the Mosquito - A Worm Harness

Tip: This rig will help you catch more walleye and smallmouth bass.

The Mosquito is a worm harness with either # 4, #2 or #1 hooks, Mack's Lure stack beads a 5 mm bead in the middle and a 3mm  or 4 mm bead in the middle then another 3mm or 4 mm bead against the hooks, this gives a long slender body.

Tip: Instead of using a Smile Blade we use a Mack's Lure Hot Wing blade in its place.

You can use either one or two stack beads depending on how large a bait you want to display. The center bead can also be a Mack's Lure Wedding Ring bead if you want a little more bang for your buck.

The length of the lure depends on the size of presentation that you want to give the fish.  The leader length can be from 24 to 60 inches.

The long slender body and the long slender wings give this lure its name, the Mosquito and it is extremely effective for walleye and smallmouth bass.

It can be rigged with a night crawler or a plastic and can be made weedless when necessary.

Tip: The important part of this lure is the wings do not interfere with the first hook.
