Siebert Outdoors's Dredge Docker Rocker - Should I?

Recommended Posts

Love to make my own jigs with wire tie, I need to get something to skip better

 

Been hearing about this: 

Dredge Docker Rocker : (Does that look sexy?) 

14416435948101618400972.jpeg

Does anyone have experience with this product or suggest something else? 

if so, should I get 10 of 3/8th or 5 of 3/8oz and 5 of 1/2oz?

Or is it better to get 10 of 3/8oz due to weight of the craws on it. 

 

What do you guys think ?

If I were you I'd go 5  and 5 or 10 and 10...LOL!! Seriously though, split the sizes and not because of the trailer but instead water depth. You will want that 1/2oz for deeper spots and times they want the larger profile. The 3/8oz will be good for shallower spots and when you need to slow it down like post frontal conditions or clearer water.

That jig from @Siebert Outdoors is the only jig I throw in wood, skip docks, and laydowns.  I'm a jig nut and that jig is perfect. As for sizes I only use 3/8 and 1/2 in that jig in 3 different colors and usually order 20 at a time of each.

The 1/4oz version of that jig is my most-used by a large margin.  With a trailer it’s like ~0.40oz so I can cast or pitch it on most any rod.  It’s got a nice slow fall and is light enough to not sink too deep in muck bottoms and the deep hook gap lets me use a SK Shellcracker as a trailer, which make it a very very subtle swimjig. For “normal” dragging and hopping I like a Rage Mance and will be trying a 4” Pit Boss on them this year.

it's a great jig. I used it a lot this past year. Loved everything about it.

Interesting how things work.  For some just fine, for others not so hot.  I had trouble obtaining hook sets with this hook on LMB.  Based on a few fish that I (barely)  caught it appeared that the "corner" of the hook just off the barb was contacting the roof of the fish's mouth keeping the point away from penetrating.  I bent the hook into a more rounded shape and got better penetration.  

 

I really do like the designs/variety of patterns/quality/full skirts of Siebert, just am not convinced that that hook shape is right.

Thanks all for your post - I am still looking around to see if there is something better. I just want a jig that would make it easier to skip. I could use anything that resemble the arky but want a good one.

Besides rusting very easy I have had zero problems with this hook. If it is a problem I suggest going with the round bend cutting point. I have caught many bass over 6lbs on this hook in jigs that I make and never had a problem.

Im back on this again -

 

What is the advantage of using Owner Round Bend Widegap hook ? Im seeing that it cost .05 cents more. I'm not sure if I will ever throw in the heavy cover. It would be mostly docking/trees/branches.

I'm pretty simple /w Jig trailers after years and years. Kinami/Yamamoto Psycho Dad, Power Team Lures Craw Dourve (no chance I spelled that right), and a rage craw.

It's a beefier hook. I've used it a little bit and I think I still have some left. It's a great hook Mike puts on it. I just prefer the Owner Deep throat.

I make that same jig with a slightly different head/keeper, and I really like the Owner Deep Throat hooks, especially for those who use "chunk" style trailers. They skip great (but with the right trailer, you can say that about almost any jig).
