There is no such thing as Green and Chrome..I imagine that he is referring to the Chrome Firetiger which was introduced in 2007. I got this one from Bass Pro Shops but it is now Discontinued.

A quick question.. I mainly use jig heads and spoon.. On the jigging raps do most of u guys cut the front and back hooks off? Do u do that so when bringing a fish into the hole the hooks dont catch on the ice?

Most people only remove the hook on the tail....I remove both because I have never caught a fish (with exception to foul hooking) on the other hooks.....And yes the back hooks will catch on the ice. Also it is a good idea to remove the small treble hook that they come with and replace them with larger stronger hooks.
