That's what I was thinking cause ill use a yum crawbug in green pumpkin since it looks the closest thing thing to a crawdad but by any chance copuld you show me some pictures of the jig you make so I can try it out and what size weight do you use cause I've been mainly using an 1/8 oz since the crik is so low
Here is a pic of the type of jig I use, I will vary the size of the head from 1/8oz to 3/16oz most of the time and 1/4oz if I'm deeper than 5' or in heavy current. I think a super realistic craw is a good thing if the bite is extremely tough and it could help get an extra strike or two but I've been experimenting and the craw I use on my finesse jigs is the best I've tried so far, it has enough realism to get the attention of the fish, the movement is subtle but the fall and stance it takes on the bottom put it over the edge. Like I said, a realistic bait is good but you increse your catch with a good presentation.

what kind of craw and what kind of jig do you use because i love that set up its perfect id probaly go max 1/4oz probably more 3/16 or 1/8
Gall, I have a lot of success with that little bait. I make the jig and I make it in 3 sizes, 1/8oz which I use the most, 3/16oz is another that gets frequent use and 1/4oz which sees a lot of action in lakes and not so much in the river. It is a ball head jig with an extremely light 5/64" weed guard and a flat eye hook and for my own personal jigs I use the Mustad 32798 hooks but I also make them with Owner 5326 cross eye hooks and Gamagatsu 614 hooks. The craw comes from River Rock Baits, it is called a Jakes Craw and it took a long tome to find a trailer that really worked with the jig.
