Top 3 Jig Skirt Colors For Both Pitching & Flipping ; Football Head Jigs

Recommended Posts

If you as a bass angler were limited with storage space while on the water and had to choose (3) three colored skirts for flipping & pitching timber, as well as, casting a football jig into rock. What will they be?

Easy for me too.

Green Pumpkin

Black Blue

Everything else I've got is a variation of those... A little added chart or blue, solid black or a little red added.

I used to carry many colors. Now I carry greenish (maybe with a little red), brownish/orange, and some combo of black/blue. Works for me.

You are going to need a lot of football jigs if you plan to flip or pitch them into heavy cover. The Arkie and brush (alien) heads are better suited for heavy cover, the football better for casting. However your question was about skirt colors and that choice should be to get the bass to strike your jig, not what is popular regionally. Not knowing where you are located limits suggestions.

Crawdads change colors to match their surroundings, but 90% of the crawdad color is brown, so brown should be a major color consideration. Brown with purple highlights is choice #1, Purple is a combination of red and blue, high visibility color and common for both crawdad and bluegill.

Back in the days when pork ruled,I use to match black jigs with brown Uncle Josh pork frogs or vice versa. No other colors were used.

Very simple. Black and blue, green pumpkin and white.

Don't make the mistake of not using white jigs, especially when casting. A jig can represent more than crawfish or bluegill and the white jig covers that end. Besides, if you're throwing white while the majority of the anglers out there are using green pumpkin, those fish will be seeing something they normally don't and that's always ups your odds.

I generally stick to black/blue, green pumpkin/orange, and brown/orange.

I am looking forward to trying a few variations on these colors with the Sieberts I picked up this winter, namely Blue Craw and Alimony (black/blue/chartreuse).
