Figured this was a good place to post that as most the time these jigs are used when float/bobber fishing. I know there have been similar post to this year after year, but lets see some of your guys jigs. I have taken a liking to the idea of jig fishing under floats. While not a very productive method of fishing on the main river I fish (Saint Joseph). I have seen it much more effective in the northern rivers. When fishing the spring College tournament this year it was the only thing I could get hits on. I used knowledge I had gathered in previous conditions and applied it to the situation at hand. Pre-fishing the tournament, I was faced with low clear water, heavy pressured fish near Tippy and bight blue bird skies. I have found that when fishing spinners that blue can be a good color for steelhead in these conditions. I went 0 for 3 (all three nice Adults 28"+) while fishing water where no one had even hooked a fish around me, with a metallic blue and pink jig tipped with a waxie. The day of the tournament the conditions had changed, a cold front had came in snow was coming down, and the sky was dark. I covered the same water with out a hit, covered even more water and managed to get a hit from a small steelhead and land it on a solid pink jig tipped with a waxie. So I am looking to up my jig game this season and try some new stuff. I really like the natural nymph type steelhead jigs, but have never owned one to use one. But looking to see other jigs, and opinions. Also is it better to tie with an actual jig head, or is the balanced style head with a pin through the bead more effective to get a natural drift?
