If you can run two it's a numbers game. Sometimes in shallower water you can only get away with one.

WHEN RUNNING TWO DO YOU USE A HEAVIER JIG ON BOTTON ? SAY A 1/32 OVER A 1/16 ? I know depth and speed will dictate total weight YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH JUST WONDERING IF THEY WILL PLLL BETTER IF NOT THE SAME SIZE .

When I pull doubles I put the light head on the end of the line. It will stay above the heavy head and make for less tangles.

I usually only have one jig on, but I have seen a friend (currently a guide) down on Weiss Lake pull two 1/24oz Jiffy Jigs and do just fine.

Overall, it probably is a "numbers" game .... putting more choices out there for the fish to see vs having twice as many hooks out there that can potentially snag up. :twocents

Always heavy jig first and lighter jig on the end.

We are only allowed (by law) to fish either two rods with one hook, or one rod with two hooks, per fisherman. Which is why I tend to pull the two rods to increase the spread.

I use 2 sometimes to get the right depth. If your marking fish 10 ft down 2 1/16 jigs will put you in the money but so well one 1/8 jig is just up to you.

WHERE WILL 2X 1/8 BE ON 6 LB. TEST ?

Depends on how much line you have out an what speed you are running. I always just cast out about 35 ft. Then slow up to go deeper and speed up some to run shallower.
