Jig maker needed!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

I would like to purchase some custom flipping jigs. I have attached some pictures below that references what I need. Essentially I want a small compact jig, in 3/8 or 1/2 oz. I need a stout hook! I have looked all over the web to try and find something that fits this niche, but I cannot find one. I've been buying the strike King Bitsy Flip and re-skirting them to my liking. 

 

Although the Bitsy Flip is ok, I would like a custom jig for myself. The angle of line tie of the Bitsy flipping jig  is perfect, and the only two colors of the head I would need would be black head and a green head. Weights needed are 3/8 and 1/2oz. No skirt needed. I need a strong hook that can stand braided line. As far as head design goes, I would like a flipping head but that can stand on the bottom. 

 

I have no clue what size hook is on the Bitsy Flipping Jig, but that size is perfect! I would buy enough to make it your wild! If you are intrested in making these please let know here via PM or by phone at 478-232- four four 5 six. 

 

The writing on the paper in the picture is not correct, the one that is marked 3/8 is actually 1/2oz.

You're pretty much on the right track with the flippin bitsy.   I don't bother making this style.   Not in much use for me to own molds.   The hook size varies with the lure weight.   Jig hooks come in Xtra strong also.  There are pictures to scale to compare in most tackle catalogues.    I don't see a need for a heavier hook on a small bait just because you use braid.  Sharper is better than thicker.   If you snag it, you're going to lose it or not be able to dislodge it.   Maybe why you use so many?   You're also more likely to lose fish, because you'll try to hit them too hard and over power them on landing.   I prefer a hookeye that is perpendicular to the line, in this style, as they come over cover better.  I made them that way before they were available commercially.   That's about the only thing I find wrong with that bait.   But those type jig hooks are harder to come by or in heavy wire.

If you haven't checked him out yet, Siebert Outdoors is where I get all my jigheads. He may have something similar to what you are looking for. You can find him as a site sponsor on the right side of the page. 

Just go to the "Tackle Making" menu item for all his jigheads. 

If Mike doesn't have exactly what you are looking for, shoot him an email and he may be able to get you exactly what you need.

Look into LurePartsOnline Style B Weedless Jig made by Cast Industries as it is the closest I can find. The other option is to make a copy of the Bitsy jig out of high temp silicone.
