    Default Making weedless jigs

    After watching the fishing machine's video, i tied up a few. I only had 60 lb test line ( a brail line from a old throw net ) . I will try some 40 lb test when i get some. I pre crimped the line as it was fairly stiff. I also tried it on a marabou jig. We fished a little while Monday around the mouth of Elk river under the docks. The bluegill would not leave the jig alone. We caught a few of them but no crappie. Hope the weedless jigs help out in tree tops and under the docks. Big thanks to Richard Gene for all the helpful videos he puts out.

    Yup I’ve made some as hand tied jigs they work good. Simple idea, good results. Just go slow and don’t set the hook on trees or structure, amazing what structure you can get them through.

    Looks good I have tried them in the past and they do help some but I found the extra work versa the lost of jigs just didn't work for me. It does cut your losses almost I half but I can tie on a new jig fast, I'm sure whenever my eyes get bad I'll rethink it

    I have been doing that for years, I use 50# cheap mono. Works great. Sometimes I will do it as a y- guard. Have fun.
