Siebert Outdoors Jigs

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Im gonna buy a few jigs from Sieberts.  I was wondering which design I should get?(there are so many...) Ill be primarily pitching these jigs in heavy shallow cover and docks. 

 

Thanks,

LEW

Get the arkie for docks and wood, the punch jig for heavy cover.

I am no jig sharpie. In fact, I have only been fishing them for s short time now. I have tried several different jigs, but I seem to favor the Siebert Dredge Series brush jig. I seem to hang them up less often then other jigs, and I really like the hook on it. I fish them in shallow water with very heavy cover (trees, laydowns). Sadly though...the fish on my water seem to be terrified of jigs and I don't get very many bites.

The Siebert site is tad frustrating, because every jig, in every series, in every style has the same written description.

The 3/8oz Dredge or the standard brush head are, IMO, the most versatile.

I tried the dredges with that funny hook and had lots of bites, but missed most hook sets.  I finally figured out that that the sharp kink in the hook bend was contacting the roof of the fish's mouth and allowing the hook point to miss the roof of the fish's mouth as the jig exited the mouth.  I solved it by bending the hook to put the point into better position to penetrate.  I wrote Siebert about this but never received an answer.

I would recommend the other designs over the dredges.  I have others of his that work just fine, and he offers many great color combinations that don't seem to be available elsewhere.

The Dredge has the HIGHEST hook up ratio of any hook for me.  In fact, I prefer that hook when I don't need a heavy flipping hook.

There's dozens of threads and several articles about the how to use the different styles of jigs effectively.  You might try the articles section, and the long running jig question thread:

Slayed a few yesterday on the Siebert jig. The Dredge Brush or Grid Iron Brush Jig are great all around jigs and I have zero issues with hookup unless I screwed up.

I will agree their website plain sucks for me. When trying to see detailed pics of the head design some of those pics are still small when you select the blown up version. That is OK if your experienced and know the jig style by name but many of us are still checking out the new designs etc and would like to see what we are considering buying. Also when trying to look at the colors of the skirts to compare what colors you want its hard to compare if they are on two separate pictures/frames. I love their products that I have tried and know what I have but the website does deter me from shopping.

Or these although I can pretty well determine their style.

Just my opinion, not saying I am right, but this is the way I would think the picture should be. You click + on the magnification on that one and you can really see the detail.

You should be able to see every head style he offers.

He Sells packs of "Best Selling Jigs"...I love the Hooks he uses, I think they are the Owner Deep Throat hooks and his prices are really good, he sells the swim Jig heads and Arkie Heads that you can have custom done with eyes etc...Then pick skirt colors..

I would simply ask him what he would use and let him know the types of water you fish, or what store brand jig you like and Since jigs are his specialty, He can make them with a better hook and balance. I have had some Jigs I purchased 2-3 years ago that are still razor sharp and those hooks are money, he also sends the weedguards full and long so you can customize it, I hate some in the store that are too thin or too stiff....

I would grab a few swim jigs, I catch more fish on that style Swim Jig, Hook, and detail and I simply change out skirts but the wire tie is key if you are buying any tungsten since he has good prices on punch weights and heavy flipping jigs, the wire tie is worth paying for, doing it yourself takes time to learn. I have ruined many skirts turning the wire to tight.

I am able to see EVERY head style in extreme close up.  You might do a little more browsing.  The other lines sometimes have better angles of heads.  A football head is a football head, and a brush head is a brush head, regardless of the trailer, hook, or line.  Once you've seen an arkey head, you've seen 'em all.  There is a really good pic of the football head if you got to the Mata Dredge.

Also, keep in mind, this is one guy, who makes these by hand, has a day job, and actually fishes what he makes.  I'd buy his jigs if his website was 100% text based.

Maybe it is all on my end I'm not ever betting on the internet to be the same twice ever. :lol: 

I wasn't trying to say I hated him or his products. I was just stating for me the website wasn't good. I listed the few issues I had so in the event he read this it wasn't like I was just saying crap for the hell of it. And if he was considering a new website maybe give him some ideas. That was my experience on his site nothing more. All the ones I didn't post links to worked great on my Chrome browser Version 53.0.2785.116 m.

As I stated I really like the products I have of his and actually plan to order some more maybe today. :thumbsup_blue:

This has become my favorite:  http://www.siebertoutdoors.com/Grid-Iron-Custom-G2-Jig-803.htm

Try a new color:  Kent's Kraw

 

:animals-52:

I agree 100 percent. I use bama craw and pb+j and black and blue. Don't forget the rage craws.

Just a thought about buying jigs. Don’t know about the locales in which you other folks fish, but here in Massachusetts it is not legal to use any lead jigs under one ounce. Fortunately, Siebert’s does offer tungsten jigs in several styles so I'm working on my order for next spring. Just thought I’d mention it.
