View Full Version : favorite size crappie jig head

Mine is 1/32 but thought of trying 1/64

12-23-2014, 09:16 AM
You can't go wrong with a 1/8 and down size from there as needed.

Then of course you need some of these!! I have quite a few of these jig heads and will paint and tie them soon.

75% of the time 1/8th

i probe a lot of brush and believe the 1/8th gives me a better feel. 2" power grubs are the bait of choice also. naturally if the fish told me to slow down the jig and bait would change.

1/8 and 1/32:twocents

12-24-2014, 04:02 AM
I have no clue but i sell hundreds of thousands of jigheads a year and 1 /16 is definatly #1 followed by 1/8 and 1/32,i personally use 1/16 unless i'm trolling and i go up to a 1/4.

12-24-2014, 04:06 AM
If I had to pick just one it would be 1/16th. It just works well for me shallow or a lil deeper without having to rerig. Add a split shot above and it fishes well deep or in the wind. In the spring when fish are hunting something a bit bigger and most days are windy I like a 1/8th or maybe even a 1/4. A 1/32 1/24th or 1/64th rules the roost for me when dip fishing real shallow cover or bobber fishing in stained to clear water.

12-24-2014, 05:56 AM
I'm a 1/24 guy

12-24-2014, 08:30 AM

Same here and, if it's real windy 1/4

12-24-2014, 03:34 PM
1/16 oz my favorite on calm day, windy may go to 1/4 oz

12-24-2014, 06:17 PM
1/16th for the water depth I fish. 10 to 20 feet.

1/24 for me to but aint scared to change

12-25-2014, 08:44 AM
use 1/4 and 3/8 fishing deep 1/16 shallow and casting 1/16 weedless.

12-25-2014, 07:42 PM
1/16 most of the time. 3/32 when casting in the wind.

12-26-2014, 03:13 PM
1/32nd but will change it up when needed

12-26-2014, 03:32 PM
Use several different sizes but 3/32 if I had to pick just one.

12-26-2014, 07:11 PM
I like 1/32 or even 1/64 for the slow fall presentation. If conditions call for a heavier jig I will use them.

12-26-2014, 10:06 PM
I can't narrow it down, I like the ones that are putting the fish in the boat today. I use everything from 1/32 to 3/8. Lately I have been using 1/4oz the most, them fishes down deep lately.

12-26-2014, 10:57 PM
1/16 about 75 percent of the time

12-27-2014, 01:02 AM
Mostly 1/8 but I use 1/4 oz too.

04-20-2015, 01:14 PM

04-21-2015, 04:22 PM
1/32 or 1/4 for deep.

04-21-2015, 09:13 PM
I like 1/8 most of the time but will go to 1/16 on occasion. I always go with 1/8th when verticle jigging and when casting in the wind. Anything less than 1/8th and the wind puts too much of a bow in the line.

04-23-2015, 07:24 AM
1\8 to 1\4 in the Spring, 1\16 to 1\8 in the Summer, 1\16 in the Fall, and 1\64 to 1\4 in the Winter. I have caught 5 inch fish on a 3" bait, and 2 3\4lb fish on a stinger with a 1\64th jig head. Let the fish tell you what they want.

05-04-2015, 11:54 AM
1/64 oz for my area. Now I do fish them 2 or 3 at a time to double/triple my chances.

06-03-2015, 11:51 AM
1/16 but starting to use 1/8 a lil more than I used to .

06-08-2015, 09:31 AM
I've been using 1/32 this spring, fishing the spawn in shallow water. They seem to be moving deeper and I'll probably start using 1/16 soon, which is my usual preference for casting. In the fall I might switch to 1/8, or on windy days.

I fish a 1/16 oz head 99% of the time. Will occasionally go up to an 1/8th if the wind is bad.
