I'm looking at strictly jig fishing this year. I would like to know what everyone's favorite jig weight is? And favorite colors too?

Finesse, grass, swim, football & brush jigs.

3/4 oz football in the summer and a 1/2 oz any other times.  I will downsize if the bite is tough.  Only about 10% of the time tho.

This guy also makes an awful nice 1/4oz swim jig.  One of my favorites in various perch/bluegill colors.

 

The 3/8oz is my starting point though.  If I fished a lot of deeper water it might be 1/2oz+

i like 1/4 oz jigs for grass less than 8 ft, 3/8 for grass between 8-16 and 1/2-3/4 oz for deeper than 16 ft with grass. for wood i like 1/4 oz, and rock i like a little heavier than grass so i typically start with 1/2 and go heavier the deeper i get. colors I like natural green pumpkin or watermelon with a flash of color, or black/blue and black/red...

I need new sneakers, what are everyones favorite size for Basketball and Tennis?...

i go with 17 .5 oz on my right foot like to keep that bad boy planted for my serves. left foot i like light so i can lift it higher typically 1 oz sneaker , sometimes  sock or no sock depends. 

 

basketball is opposite, heavy on my left for more momentum when I'm slaming down dunks, light on the right so gravity doesn't hold me down. 

 

hope that helps.

No - more of a through the lily pad stems, over & under the wood,  Up & Down the Rock ledge, in & around the Docks, and open water type of thing.
