Spider Jig Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I've been fishing Cabin Creek Spider Jigs what feels like 30 years. Maybe 20+. Long time anyway. The larger version, approx 3" size. There is no a lot of difference between the large and small so I've fished the larger with the profile difference being my reasoning. I do love these, I can only recommend them if someone was looking to try them. On a local scale I can't get them anymore for the most part. I've been doing it through TW, great place.

 

I'm looking for another option or two to try. Just the manufacturers you guys have been satisfied with. I don't need to know your hottest color or patterns, I'm not fishing for that. The CC Spiders use the Spider Jig Head they brand, great for that two piece system. If you can suggest a jig head manufacturer that rigs your spiders good I'd appreciate the help. I'll buy it as a perfect fit. That's one reason CC fishes well. The jig matches the two piece spider perfect at least in 1/4 oz. and the large version of the two piece spider.

 

I realize this is nothing new. But the CC Salty Spiders is all I've ever fished as a plastic spider. I want to give something else a try. Your opinions are appreciated. Thanks.

Try Arkie Salty Crawlin' Grubs. They are meatier than the Cabin Creek Spider Grubs. I like use them with lots of success.

The Keitech Little Spiders work well also:

The smallest size Keitech Little Spiders get hit by everyting.  They are pretty fragile though.

Guys thanks for the replies. I placed an order with TW and was able to get colors and jig heads I thought would well for me. Lean more toward dark colors. Ordered Chompers, Yamy's, Damiki's and the Keitechs. The  Keitech I ordered were the Small Spiders. Never fished a 2" version. 

 

I'll stop past Wally World to see if they have those Arkie brand. The Wally Worlds I my area SUCK. They have a whole  lotta nothing. I get frustrated going there. But they may have them and in frustration I've overlooked them. 

 

The CC Spiders are good stuff. Just feel the need to try something different but similar at the same time. 

 

Fishing these is is about my extent of jig fishing. I can't fish a skirted jig very well. A weak point, a crutch for me. A frustrating way to fish. The soft plastic version is basically grub fishing. I don't know. If skirted jigs are not for me oh well. Thanks for the help. Greatly appreciated.
