    Bonanza!! Opened a box that I thounght had supplies in it and looky here. 15 patterns of Zitz painted last ice last year. They will number from 30-50 pcs ea. Glow White Turbo, Glow Purple Convict and Glow Smerch too. Stumbled onto some unpainted Baby Zitz to(300 pcs). Any thing you'd like to see in them? I really thought it was going to bad winter for the Zitz

    Here some pics of the newer patterns. Some of them were fades, others just higher volume proto's.

    Glow White Turbo: glow red back, glow white belly, black tiger stripes? That is a good one.

    I like these

    I like the glow white minnow, glow golden perch and glow JAB (just ordered mine tonight :D). I love these spoons for perch. I always have a Zitz on at LSC and Simcoe. They truly do catch fish.

    As far as colors for those unpainted baby Zitz, maybe a golden shiner imitation.

    LM- I like the third and fifth one from the top.

    Here is a picture from my Simcoe trip last year. All fish were caught with a Zitz spoon tipped with a few spikes. I caught 73 perch in a few short hours!

    I cannot wait for some good ice to fish on!

    Happy Thanksgiving every one!

    Thanks for finding that box of painted zitz Harry. Received my latest order this week and I have high hopes for a few of those patterns. Now I'm afraid I might lose them.

    Bob,

    Yeah, me too or there wouldn't have been any new Zitz this season.

    Is there any interest is LM Wonderbreads? Just wondering how many to make.

    Hi Harry, I'd go for 3 or so, any chance of painting that pattern on a fry? ;)

    I could do it, but not with two sets of spots. The canvas is too small for that. One set is all that would fit without crowding it.

    Any one else?

    To all my customers, when the season starts to wind down(march-ish), let me know what patterns you would like to see next season. If you have a jig that you don't remember the name of or that you lost, check out the "Archive" page. Many of the jigs that I throw in with orders are prototype and will not appear in the archive.

    Purple fades to red w/silver glitter over all on a prototype Fry looks very nice to me, can't wait to get it wet. Won't be long now:D

    These always seemed to draw interest even though they don't glow. Fry and Lil' Minnies(Wonderbread) coming later next week. Fry will only have one set of dots as the Lil Minnies have two sets. First time offering Wonderbread Fry.

    Very nice. I like the white/red. Like I didn't have enough trouble with pike stealing the jigs I bought from you last year!! :lol:

    You know you can count on me for an order! Best jigs you can get!
