The Demon size 10 is the most popular panfish pick – and the size 12 is a premier ultra-light lure for finicky fish. Tipped with a single spike, the Demon 12 is a tremendous shallow water bluegill producer. The Demon size 8 is great for perch and crappies or any fish species keying in on larger profile forage. Demon size 6 has the same size body as the size 8, but the size 6 hook will accept a larger minnow or other supersized bait options. When fishing “eater” walleyes, the Demon size 6 will outproduce heavier, bulkier jigs on highly-pressured lakes. The largest size 4 is an excellent choice for chasing the bigger ’eyes, but make sure to balance your tackle! A Demon size 4 used with a whole minnow or minnow head on a medium-action rod and 6 pound test line, while a Demon size 12 used on a light rod with 2 pound test line. Size 4 is nearly unbeatable on a dead stick or jingle reel; size 12 is deadly on a long rod in shallow water.
Don’t overlook the Demon for open water. Size 4 Demons in Glow Brite colors like GB7 are super effective for walleyes in dirty, high-water river situations or the tannic waters of the North. Tip it with a large fathead minnow or shiner and cast on light spinning tackle. Strikes can range from subtle taps to full-on reaction bites that nearly yank the rod from your hand! And don’t forget size 6 and 8 Demons for panfish! Worms, small leeches, minnows, waxworms and maggots make ideal partners to any Demon.
