Jigs
« on: March 02, 2018, 11:49:28 AM »

Hey guys! Recently I've been wondering what weight of jigs you guys use. Personally I use 3/4oz Tungsten Flipping Jig mostly all time, whether its 2ft or 15ft of water, cover or not. How about you guys?!.  ~cf ~fff

I use 3/8 and 1/2 ounce.  Mostly because I have both and cannot tell the difference when looking at them.  My preference is 3/8 in most conditions.

you have to let the bass tell you what speed will trigger them to strike.

When I started bass fishing I really relied on books and magazines.  Back in the '80's in Brooklyn there weren't any fishing shows and there wasn't much "fresh water'.  Anyway, Bassmaster regularly said use the lightest jig that you can feel the bottom.  Every time I started fishing a jig I'd use a 3/16 oz Stanley casting jig and work my way up to a 5/8 oz flippin' jig.  Had a lot of trouble casting that jig were i wanted it.

One day, I'm reading the tournament results in Bassmaster, Denny Brauer, who, in an article 30 pages ago said ".....use the lightest jig...." won a tournament flippin'  a 1/2 oz jig in 18 in of water.

Match the conditions, the wind, the cover, etc., may make it necessary to go heavier then you think you should go.  If you can't get it to the fish, they can't accept or reject your jig.  Bo is right about speed and rate of fall but sometimes it doesn't matter because of difficulties presenting the jig.

Fishing jigs is one technique Ive never had much luck with but always wanted to master. So this year I am committed to learning. Looking through old posts on UB has already set me in the right direction. All I need now is a sensitive bottom contact rod and for the water to get warmer than 40*.

You will love it when the jig bite is on its great. I enjoy fishing a jig but I use it for pitching more than the traditional sit on the bottom and do the hop drag or bounce. I really enjoy setting that hook knowing you just fooled another one.  ;D

I have 3 gram finesse all the way up to 2oz to punch thick heavy matts. My absolute favorite is 1/2 oz swim jig, I have a lot of confidence in it, 1/2oz and 3/8 are my most used. Like others say, I let fish, conditions and cover or lack there of dictate.
