What Type Of Jig Head?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

What type of jig head and weight would you reccomend from siebert outdoors?

I will be pitching shallow wood/shoreline brush in about 4-6 feet of water!!(late spring, summer and early fall)

Thanks!

Also, what color is your favorite for visibility of 2.5-4 feet?

Depending on how thick the cover you plan to penetrate will determine the jig weight. All around general use jig would be the 1/2 oz brush head with Owner hook, colors Bluegill and brown craw for your area.

I select jig weight based on the Rate Of Fall I want to accomplish, it maybe over an ounce.

Fishing shallow "wood" I would select a 3/8 oz, Rage Tail Lobster, in Falcon Lake.

Brush jig without question. 1/4-1/2 ounce in some craw colors, green pumpkin, and black or black and blue.

3/8 brush in bluegill or similar.  If you've got a lot of weed cover as opposed to brush I went with his grass and tournament swim jigs last year and did well with those.

When would you suggest moving up to the 1/2oz as opposed to the 3/8oz?

Try both, somedays a slower fall rate works better than a faster one. You can use a wider trailers with more water resistance to slow down the 1/2 oz. You are fishing shallow water, as Catt pointed out, so the 3/8 will be a good choice, if the cover isn't to thick. Only you know what type of water you are fishing, we can only make a guess based on our experiences..

Warm weather I'll start with 1/2, colder weather I'll start with 3/8!

Again rate of fall is key in my book ;)

Does the faster ROF trigger that reaction strike?

Yes but so does a slower ROF ;)

The colder the water, the slower the bass's brain operates so the slower you must present the bait or it's gone before the bass's brain tells it to bite.

I would go with the Brush head.  Its a great all around jig head.  Only exception is thick grass.  Then I would go with the grass head.   Top two colors I would chose are Blue bug, PBJ right now.

I was just on your website, and was wondering: what is the difference between the regular brush head and the dredge brush head? I see the hooks are different? Which one is better?

Good point about trailer choice affecting fall rate. 

 

When I use a trailer like a Craw Daddy by Poor Boys the bait will fall faster.

Stick on a 5" Yamamoto Spider grub and the bait will fall much slower with the kicking legs and extra skirt material.

Also, if you thin out the silicone skirt that comes on the jig you will get a faster drop speed. I often do this when fishing clear water in the summer.

You are correct.  It is the hook that is different.  The Mustad Ultra Point is a good hook, but the Deep Throat Owner is a better hook.  The penetrating and performance is better from what I have found.  It penetrates like a light wire hook and the wire is a medium wire that is still strong for a long lasting hook and point.
