Siebert Outdoors first purchase

Recommended Posts

I've noticed there are a lot of Siebert Outdoors fans here.  I want to find out what all the hype is about.  I looked over their website a bit and had no idea which jigs to get.  What types are your favorites?  Is the dredge hook worth the extra $$?

 

I primarily fish jigs in the usual laydowns, brush, docks and weeds.  Most often soft bottom, but do fish some hard bottom every once in a while.  Any advice on what jig types to try would be great.

 

Thanks in advance!

Same issue I ran into - so many choices and for someone new to fishing jigs, the differences of the descriptions were lost on me.

Yes.  I recommend the dredge jig pack for a start.

I sent a PM to Siebert asking for advice.  But it sounds like the brush jigs are popular.

The brush jig head is the most versatile.  Next would be the Arky style.  After that, you start to get more specialized.

When I was getting into jig fishing, Mike ( @Siebert Outdoors )suggested a 3/8oz Brush Head jig as the 'all terrain vehicle of jigs'.

 

Now in my third year, that advice has certainly proven to be true.

Mike suggested the arky, dock rocker or brush jigs.  He said if it was him, he'd get brush jigs.

I am a 1/4oz Dock Rocker w/ Dredge hook kind of guy, but I think my next order is going to be some 3/8oz Brush jigs.

Mike makes high quality jigs. To answer your question, What is the hype about", let me tell you.

(1) The paint is adhered to the jig optimally.  It doesn't chip off like some of the other brands I've used when hitting rocks and trees.  Mike uses a solid system of heating the paint on his jigs.  

(2) The jigs I use (1/2 oz Arky/Derocker) have strong hooks with very little if no flex and when I lean on a fish, I need to move them and can't afford much give.  

(3) I like the copper wire tie option.  On jigs with rubber bands, I hate it when the rubber band breaks and the jig falls apart.  Wire ties ensure the jig stays intact longer.  I've had some jigs I've used for many months.  

(4) Mike has been great to work with.  He responds to emails and is spot on with his recommendations.  I use the Arky with a firm weed guard b/c the area I primarily fish is a flooded forest and your average weed guards don't cut it. I need the firm weed guard to keep the jig out of the brush and maximize my fish time and less snag time.  

(5)Lastly, for virtually custom made quality jigs, you get them at a very reasonable price.

Yea, most of his jigs are sub $4 and that's even with the wire tie.  If they are has as good as you say, that's worth it.  I kinda like the flukemaster colors.  Been adding and removing colors from my cart since I started this thread.  lol

I own several companies jigs, but tend to reach she eats more often.

 

I suspect as I replace jigs, they will be she eats.

 

I am finding the 1/4 and 3/8 get most of my attention

You've asked this in three different places, so hope the answer here (only) suffices.

 

If I am fishing very soft bottoms (sticky muck), I don't throw a jig.  I'll use a weightless plastic or something that isn't going to get dredged through the slop.  

 

However, I _do_ still fish a jig on soft (aka 'not rock') bottoms all the time.  All I fish is brush head jigs.  I do have a couple football head jigs that I got when they were on megasale from Sieberts, but I don't find that they do significantly better on the bottom of any of the bodies of water I fish.  

 

Brush head = All-terrain vehicle

I'll admit, I don't consider myself a good jig fisherman, but I have an assortment of jigs that I've been rotating.  The main ones are below.

 

All-Terrain Rattling A.T. jigs

Strike King AP jigs

Boss wood walker jig heads with various skirts

Booyah baby boo jigs

 

Recently bought some *** NuJigs, but haven't fished them yet.

His stuff is great; pay the extra for wire tying if you don't have the stock to do it yourself, the paid is very durable, the hooks are solid and the skirts are very good quality.
