However, I do use jigs for smallies. A Hula Grub on a 1/4 oz. football jig, sometimes can't be beat. But I'm fishing these on steep drop offs. Certainly not flipping or even pitching for that matter.

Smallies caught flipping / pitching are usually around docks, lay downs, and deeper weed/grass lines and represent a small percentage.

I love the Eakins flipping jig for smallmouth. You can catch them on bigger flipping jigs also they just usually aren't around really heavy cover where a flipping jig might be the best choice.
I've read about this one... Need to pick some up. I know guys have alot of luck on hair jigs.
My best smallie producing jig was Bitsy Bug with a netbait Paca Chuck.
