What do you guys think is the best flipping jig for bass? Which trailers and what colors do you use to catch fish? I fish crankbaits mostly, and want to learn how to consistantly catch bass on a jig.

I really like the Booyah Boo jigs.  IMO, flipping wood and flipping grass are two different things.  A jig with an upturned, flat eye like the Triple Rattleback is good in wood.  A more pointed jighead with a straight eye is better for grass.  The Booyah Boo jigs are a combination of both.  The heads are pointed and the line tie is in-line, but the line tie is also slightly upturned and the jighead has broad shoulders and a flat bottom.  I have done very well in all covers with this style of jighead.

Vertical lures JIg X is also a great jig as there is no exposed line tie.  It is very much like fishing a Texas rig.

As for trailers, about any plastic bait will do.  The trailer adds action, but it also adds builk that slows the jig down a bit and moves water.  My favorite trailers are NetBait Paca Craws, Paca Chunks and ZOOM Super Chunks.

It's really amazing to me how many different styles of jigs there are.
I mean it's a hunk of lead poured around a hook with a skirt added.
but they are different and some are definitly better than others.
I've kinda settled on the terminator pro's secret, but I use booyah and the strike king bitsy flip when I want something tiny.
I like fat albert twin tails and hula grubs as trailers.

Strike King Pro-Model Jigs always get the job done for me. I pair mine with either a Zoom Super Chunk or Luck E Strike trailer.

The absolute best jig is the one tied on the end of my rod & no you can't use it ;)

For 3/8 oz or larger jigs, I like PJ's Flippin' Jigs in black/blue. For smaller, I like Eakins Jigs in black/blue and green/orange.

I tried jigs years ago with pork trailers and had no luck. I gave up. A couple years ago a friend of mine fished a jig and did pretty well. Early last year we fished together and he out caught me two to one on a jig. I was fishing a worm but he was schooling me. He also caught a 3 lb fish to boot. So I gave in and asked him exactly what he was fishing with. It is a black and blue 1/4 oz bitsy flip jig by Strike King. Every Walmart under the sun sells them. The trailer is a 2.5 inch black and blue swirl craw from Gander Mountain. I started catching bigger fish with the jig last year. I caught a 4 and 5lber back to back in March on that jig! I started throwing the same jig in a green pumpkin yesterday and caught one decent fish. I am not convinced that I should throw the green yet.
I fish Lake Caroline in Caroline County, Virginia.

Tpayneful, what is the water clarity when u usually throw the grn. pumpkin jig. If its anything but clear use the black/blue. In my experience the grn. pumpkin and watermelon jig colors only work in clear to lightly stained water clarity color.

I am new to the site, but as far as a jig goes I like a 1/2 oz boo jig and a 1/2 oz. football jig. I mostly use black and blue, but if I am fishing clear water I like to use green pumpkin. The trailers i use are the baby paca craws and chigger craws that match the color of the jig.
