    Default Minnows, Ponies and#2 LiteWire Hooks

    Here are a few different style jigs I poured with the Eagle Claw #2 LiteWire. What do you think?

    The ponyhead on the right has been modified for a flat surface to add 3D or Hand Pained eyes.

    Those look real good. I like to use lite wire hooks so theywill bend free of a snag. What is the number on that eagle claw hook?

    The barbs on the minnow look to be a bit long.The ones I use that are that long I trim just a bit with the nail clippers in the boat and they hold real good. Nice stuff.

    They look very good, but I just prefer sickle hooks.

    The Eagle Claw lite-wire hooks work great when fishing around snags and brushy areas where the SLABS hang out. I'm also making 2 different styles of weedless jig that work really well. Nothing is more frustrating than constantly breaking your line and losing your baits when the bite is HOTT! With either of these options your catch rate will go up. If I can help you, let me know.
    PS: the ponies are for my personal use only.

    Did you use a filler (Jb weld or resin) on the pony mold to get the sides to come out flat or did you just flatten them after pouring. The most I've ever done is use an emery board to file them flat.
