    Default "Fork Tail" Plastic Jig Bodies: Help Needed

    My fishing buddy has been at it a lot longer than I have and has a lot more fishing stuff than me. He's been having success this Spring with a shad colored plastic jig body that has a forked tail. He showed me his stock and they are just in a plain plastic bag with nothing to identify them. He's had them a long time and has no idea what they are called or where he got them. They are around 1.75" long and have a very realistic looking forked tail. It looks very much like a fish's tail ought to look. I don't have a picture, but if anyone needs a picture I will do my best to come up with one. Does anyone have any idea where I could find something similar? Thanks

    There are lots of fork tail baits so posting a picture would go along with at answering your question.

    There are several choices for fork tail baits. I prefer Crappie Magnets. Hang horizontal and live action tail. Early in the year, in cold water below 60 degrees, I don't even move them. Dead stick straight down 10-12 ft. Natural boat movement will provide the action

    I would check out Bob’s Jigs and Limits Tackle which are both sponsors here on cdc. I know Limits Tackle showed some on the “LIVE” SK Crappie Catching Adventures on YouTube last night.

    I've used Lunker City Fin-S Fish 2.5" forked tail minnows ... many years ago ... and had pretty good success with them.

    Any chance it's a Tiny Fluke by Zoom?

    Steve over at Limits tackle makes some that are tournament proven long lasting plastics .
    I give them away periodically and did just this week on Sk's "live" show .
    Here are 2 of the sizes he offers and there is a larger size as well .
    He will pour just about any color you might be interested in .
