Anyways what type of rod do you have spinning or casting? This will give us a better idea of what type of jigs you should fish... you don't want to be throwing one meant for flipping on spinning gear.

To answer your specific question....it depends.  Besides, our favorites might mean nothing if we aren't fishing the same conditions you're facing....it depends

Get some 3/8oz jigs in green pumpkin, black and blue, and maybe PB&J.  As far as brands are concerned i would suggest you start with something cheap since jigs have a way of getting themselves snagged.

 

Check your local sporting goods store for sales.

X2 on the colors. Stick to black/blue, greens and browns. For trailers Paca Chunks work for me and they don't cost too much.

I think he's holed up somewhere, reading the responses to the 49 questions he asked in his first 50 posts....   ;-)

 

 

As for the jig question, I don't think you could go wrong by buying some 3/8 or 1/2 oz. jigs at Wal-Mart.  I like green, brown/green, PBJ, or black/blue.  I think it's hard to go wrong with trailers, either; just get something that looks sort of crayfishy...  I like Missile D-Bombs, Berkley Pit Boss, Strike King KVD Chunks and Yamamoto Flappin' Craws.

 

 

Tight lines,

If I were you I wouldn't cheap out on jigs. The ones I've picked up at my Walmart aren't very good. Although I do like throwing the Bitsy Bugs on spinning gear. 

 

You should save your money and wait until Black Friday to find some good deals.

Siebert jigs are not expensive at all I suggest you place an order there. Other inexpensive jigs that are pretty good are pepper baits, and bass patrol. Netbait paca chunks are cheap trailers and d**n good.

Try some Booyah Baby Boos.

 

My favorite ones? I tie my own.

I tie a lot of my own, but when I buy jigs most of the time they are boo-ya boo jigs. I like the 1/4-1/2 oz black/blue and black/red. pretty much any of the colors work just depends on the situation and these can be found under 3 bucks...

If I only could pick one jig, it would be a 1/2 ounce black&blue or pb&j football. I fish fairly deep reservoirs with lots of rocks, stumps, etc. If I fished a more weedy lake or pond, a flipping or pitching jig would be my first choice.:)

I'd suggest a Dirty Jigs arkie head jig in 3/8 or 1/2 oz. I think the actual product name Dirty Jigs uses for this style head is "Pitching Jig" but I could be wrong. Dirty Jigs is my favorite jig brand by far and I have quite a few of their jigs in different styles. The arkie head is such a versatile head shape that it works in a wide variety of situations.

 

As far as colors go I'm with the rest of the guys here, preferring greens first then browns and lastly the tried and true black & blue. Good Luck.

Keep the colors simple like others said. Get some black and blue and green pumpkin and you're good. I'd probably go with a 3/8oz head as it will cover a lot of fishing situations. 

 

I change trailers out when I need to. Sometimes you'll go through one without ever catching a fish. I've been using the new Zman Batwingz jig chunks and have used one for 2 trips now and caught a couple dozen fish on it and it's still fishable. Most jig trailers are only going to be good for a few fish though.

The importance of spelling, punctuation, complete sentences and paragraphs is overrated... :undecided:  

 

Anyhow, I would suggest 3/8 oz. Siebert Outdoors Dredge Arky Jig. Black, black & blue and

PB&J. You can buy your trailers on the same order with Siebert: Rage Tail Craw black w/ blue

flakes and PB&J.
