I bought a few of these at Gander in Duluth. Now I'm back home in Colorado and lost the package. They are very effective for crappie, but I am not sure how to look them up to order more online. Can anyone ID this jig for me? Thanks!323343

I went to the Gander website and looked at all 13 pages of soft plastics and did not find anything that looked like that.

Same. It was on an end cap in the Duluth store. Thinking about booking a flight ;)

No idea, but an interesting looking lure.

Save the ones you have left and make a mold for it, or maybe someone could do that and make them available. Neat looking body.

I'm hard headed so here is what I would do. Find phone number for store, get someone from that dept to go take a look and see if they could find them for you. Might even talk them into letting you text a picture to their phone. At least worth a shot.

That was next on my list. :)

If you only have a few --- fish with em and catch fish till they are all gone. If you get a lot of em they won't catch fish and they will just take up storage in tackle box. Don't ask me why I know this.

:) That's what I've been doing. It is outfishing my other gear and partners 10:1. Seriously. I have tried to fabricate similar lures by paring down existing jig bodies and using 1/64 oz jig heads but nothing gets them like the pictured jig body.

At least worth a shot.Before we had all of these smart devices, many moons ago if we had a question we would pick up the phone, ring Aunt Bee to patch us thru to the general store, and we would just ask them.
It worked way back then...

Pretty expensive for only 6 baits!

You're right. But they are fairly durable. And when one of them by itself is responsible for 20 fish in the boat to the other guy's 4, you pay up!

Many of the threads on CDC (and a few of our members) are infused with Donkey Sauce. ;)

I remember a time when you had about 4 different colors of tubes and about a dozen colors of marabou and if a bait shop had all them if was world class. I would think the Bobby Garland's would work if you can't find them good luck

Hal fly and maribou and bream killers, white and green curl tails—that was it. Cool looking bait.

I used the 13 Fishing coconut crab (purple rain color) and caught over 47 bluegills (2 trips) with the same one and still in useable condition for another trip. Yeap they are expensive even when I got em on sale --- 6 for $3.49

I use the Bobby Garland shad baits all the time. But when I say they wouldn't take anything else, that's what I mean. I already tossed Bobby Garlands at them (including pared down versions), Road Runners, twisty tails, maribous, skirts, etc. This one particular jig body is the one they really wanted this go around. I think because they are already full of shad, they want only a little snack, not the whole fish, or even close to the whole fish.

Before I spend my Christmas bonus on an order of them, do you mind telling what size jig you were using & how you were fishing them?
Thanks

LOL. Not at all. I put them on a 1/64 oz ball type lead jig head. Then I put a crappie nibble on it. However, I am considering getting out my coke mirror and razor and cutting the nibbles in half. They seemed a bit too large for this application, but it still worked. Anyway, then I put the jig about 15-20 yards behind the boat and dragged it over the fish at .5 to .75mph using the electric trolling motor. These fish are only down 3-8 feet in 50 degree water. But I suspect a vertical presentation will work, when it's time to switch to that style of presentation. Just need a split shot or something to get it down to them in 30' of water.

Those baits are very similar to a some of the Ajing / Mebaru soft plastics out of Japan. That doesn’t surprise me as 13 Fishing is out of Australia and they use a lot of the Japanese micro plastics there, and maybe they wanted baits modeled after the Japanese micro lures. Micro jigs catch fish no doubt. I fish a Trout Magnet for all my fishing and it is even smaller than the 13 Fishing Jeffrey bait....also use the 1/64 ounce jig head with a #6 hook or smaller. If one tips with a Crappie Nibble you may find it is too large and can interfere with the action of the lure. I used to use Nibbles but never really liked the fact they came off so easy. So now I use a tiny piece of a Berkley Power Wiggler. I cut the whole pack into tiny pieces and then put them in an old Crappie Nibble jar. This works...in my opinion....just as well if not better than using a Crappie Nibble.....especially for micro jigs. Here is pic of the set up on a 1/64 ounce jig head with a #10 hook. Using this setup I caught somewhere around 500 crappie over the last 5 weeks in about 10 trips. The micro jig head....a micro plastic....and the Power Wiggler setup can be deadly. I don’t post much on the main board but you can see the results of using the Power Wiggler setup on my YouTube channel “TroutMagnetMan” if you care to. The Power Wiggler setup is just another option.

my 2 cents is ANYTHING Gander Mountain or the new store name they go by is selling they can KEEP on the shelf . They burned me on a 25 dollar gift card with that you know what bankruptcy thing and told me I had to go to some other state up north governing the bla bla bla court order to get my money back and being not happy about the entire episode I tried and tried and it was more bla bla bla . it was a couple of years ago and I wont forget it ….
and besides they are ridiculous high priced on EVERYTHING they sell anyway .
sorry for the rant but to be sure they wont get a penny of my money under any circumstances !
