What are you guys favorite colors? A couple recent ties
Chartreuse, Pink, Purple, and Black, pretty much in that order.
Those should work! Nice job.
Trout like em, this jig had white with a light blue tint which I unfortunately lost
How about chart with a white body?
I just tied these up. I have 15 more heads to
May I ask a question or two? How are you fishing these jigs? What type of set up are you using with rods, lines and presentation. E.g. are you actually jigging or drifting etc.? What types of waters do you target for this type of presentation? Just curious. Thanks.
Below a float on a center pin. 15# floating mono main, shot line to a swivel. 18-24” 8# fluoro leader to the jig. Can run clean or with a wax worm. You could run a strait jig with just a wax worm or other artificial worm/creature as well, or a nymph or bead etc. Deeper slower holes.
Hard to believe, but I've never really fished with jigs. I just started experimenting a bit last Fall for trout on trout lakes with 3" squid. I was thinking of doing some more experimenting this Spring for trout in rivers.
Thanks for the info.
Those are some nice looking jigs Adam, you should have enough color variations to find something they like every time out. What size heads and hooks are you using?
Hew Puny, just a little note on jigs for trout. I use the "torpedo" jigs more for trout than the round head jigs. I don't know if it makes a big difference but I seem to have better fishing with them, or maybe it is just one of those "confidence" things.
Thank you sir. I bought plain lead Wapsi Super Jigs in 1/16 oz. with #4 hook.
I always tip them with 3 waxies, under a float
Bobber fishing with jigs for big resident browns pre-season used to be one of my favorite activities in type 4 water, the bonus steelhead in that particular stream were fun too.
