Looking to fish with jigs more this season. Some days when i did use jigs they outfished live bait and vice versa. But was wondering what jigs do u like to use most and why? Trying to get a genral idea on some diffrent setups to use this coming season minnows are cool, but catching fish on artifical is much funnier love the feeling u get when a fish stirkes. Thanks for any ideas u like to share,:)

The only thing that I use is a jig and blue and white tube . If the fishing slows I throw and small minnow on the same jig.

Hummmm, well I guess I have to say mine. I mean what else would someone that makes jigs say.

As for color, I like my Christmas jig and then I like silver/Fl. Yellow/ SDblue tail. However the newer to me chenille on my Green Hornet and Black Widow will I think take over for my other favs.

Check out my web page and see if you like anything you see.

I don't use minnows. Just homemade solid body plastic jigs.

1. Berkley micro tubes - green/chart or dark green glitter tipped with a white berkley micro wiggler under a float or cast. Just a killer combo.

2. BPS Crappie Beaver

3. Green head, black body, chart deer hair.

4. Berkley grub - 2 inch - Christmas tree on a unpainted round head jig. When your after slabs or they are agressive a 3 inch.

5. Kalin triple threat style grubs on unpainted jigheads. Bps and Southern Pro also make nice ones.

6. Solid Body tubes on unpainted jigheads. Red black or blue heads with white chart or clear tails.

7. Almost anything smoke and glitter on a unpainted jighead.

8. 1.5 inch northland Mimic Minnow.

9. Stanley wedgetails.

10. RoadRunners.

if i use a regular jig, i put a small tube or a small grub on, various colors. i also tip the jig with a minnow sometimes when i am using tubes.

try putting crappie nibbles (powerbait) on your jig too

I use Tale Gunner jigs when a hair,feather or marabou jig is what there biteing. Due to the color and material versatility of them. I also use alot of Southern Pro tubes when its a better tube bite. As for me colors vary. Depends on time of year, location , Day or nite fishing, water color ect. The jig heads i use are 1/16 oz monnow heads unpainted. I dont use minnows much, Its all about a JIG THING for me.

Slab Busters are made by a fellow named Jack Stevens (573-374-1337) in the Lake of the Ozarks, MO area. He will send you a flyer or go to the Missouri board where bugman has posted a scan of the flyer in several spots.

I prefer to start my jig casting with the slider/turbo jig heads in 1/8th or 1/16th weights and a blk/cht slider t-rigged on them. If that's working but wanna change I'll just go to same weights but with ballhead jigs and use every concievable plastic known to man (just ask 33 classic and CRex). That's the majority of it.
Sometimes when I want a hands off winner slab I just tie a brass hook on with a YUM vibratube in pink.white troll along and wait for my rod to double over. i forgot to mention there's usually an 1/8th jig under that hook rig about 12-18 inches down.
Don't tell anyone;) but the best trolling jig rig consists of two jigs about 2ft apart and 30-40 ft behind the boat. That's landed lots of fish for me.:D

Mid south's jigs and heads are what I use.

I use umbrella tubes made by Southern Pro with 1/8 leadhead inserted inside 99.9 per cent of the time. I mostly vertical jig brushpiles with a 12' buck's pole. I perfer the larger jigs as our fish feed on larger shad most of the year. Also I like the big profile it makes in the dingy water.

Sounds like tube baits gets the most votes here . I will be sure to look into getting a few to try to season. Thanks for the info.:) Are they basically the same as using grubs on jigs heads. Related to how there put it on?

There are 2 main ways to rig a tube. A traditional jig with head and shaft loaded on the jig like you do a grub. The other is a internal jig that you slide inside the jig and just pop the eye through to tie on. I like and use both.

I use an unpainted head and either a pink or a white 1" curly tail grub. sometimes i'll use a smaller grub but almost always pink or white. sometimes ill throw a spinner on.

I use this and have found it to be the best Jig I have ever used. Holds up great and stays on the head fish after fish.

I used TEE_ZUR for years and still do occasionally. Then I used Skip's Thumpit and I really like those. Now my fishing partner has bought out a jig company. I guess I know what I'll use now.

I use WalMart jigs (10 for 97 cents) tipped with crappie nibbles. 5100 keepers and 15000 throw backs last year seemed to like them.

If you're gonna use tubes why not try mid south?they're around 5 bucks a hundred and a whole lot better quality than anything you can buy at wally world.5100 keepers and 15000 throwbacks:confused: you must be good with numbers.....

I am using the marabou jigs(hook and everything included) . I keep records on all keepers and we usually catch 3 throw backs to every keeper.
