    Default Small jigs

    Is there any rhyme or reason of when to switch to a smaller sized jig? Is it true that in the colder months smaller jigs hit better?

    I use trout magnets a lot and other small jigs. Usually with a 1/32 or 1/16 #4 sickle jig. And tipped with a chartreuse nibble or a small worm chunk works for me any time of the year.Name:  20200517_210845.jpg

    I think it's more important in summer, have you ever noticed that after spawn they seem to disappear? Well they didn't disappear, they became inactive a small light jig sinks slower and moves more naturally.

    I fish 1/64 and 1/32 oz year round. Very rarely go bigger than that.

    Make sense though because they are wary of bigger minnow, right?

    I think they still eat bigger real baitfish, but the amount of time they aggressively feed is small.

    I never change but many guys swear after Shad spawn they are looking for smaller baits !

    We use 1/80 1/32 1/16 Most of these are marabou and either a black or a purple also we use a lot of 1/2” to 2 inch plastics that’s the range that we use all summer if they get finicky we go to the small Jigs.
