Best Flipping Jig?

18 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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.

For flipping grass I like a Persuader jig, but when I'm fishing wood I like a Terminator or All-Terrain tackle jig. My most productive colors are black/blue, watermelon flash, brown/purple flash, and Texas Craw. I fish all my jigs with Paca chunks or ZOOM superchunks in matching colors.

I've been using and have caught Bass up to 6.5 lbs on Vertical's Jig X but have recently been using the Wadda jig.  I really like the fact that it comes with a hand-tied, rubber skirt;  no rubber band that will dissolve away, allowing the jig's skirt to fall off.

The Next KVD,

                   My lake is usually clear but after it rains the lake might get a slight stain.  This weekend was the first time that I actually stayed with the green pumpkin jig.  Do you think the black and blug jig is acceptable in clear water during low light conditions?
