I throw a lot of different style jigs, I mainly use all North Star Baits Jigs.  My favorite is a Swim Jig...

 

But I also love the Flip & Swim Jig, Southpaw, Black Football and Black Series jigs, all just depends on the type of cover and structure I am fishing...

Paradise tackle jigs. Hands down. If i could have one jig for the rest of time. It would be a 3/4 oz P.T. f.b. jig in texas craw. Trailers dont really much to me. Some kinda craw or beaver. Havoks are good and cheap! Rage craws if you wanna pay double

I have been making my own for years and this has been the new go-to. For trailers I use different ones but my main 3 are; Super Chunks, Chigger craws, and Prowler chunks.

This one with a Rage Craw, Christie Craw, or Craw Papi. I really like fishing pork too but it's too expensive for me to use anymore.

My favorite all around jig is an arkie style jig. My favorite trailer depends on the season, the fish's activity level, and how fast a drop the fish want, so I really don't have an all around favorite. If I were forced to choose only one, it'd be a RageTail Craw.

I fish a lot of vegetation so for me it's Oldham's Eye-Max, Siebert's Grass Jig, or Hack Attack's Heavy Cover or Fluorocarbon Jig.

 

Trailers:

Rage Craw, Lobster, Menace, or Bug

Larew Hawg Craw 

Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed Craw or Swimmin Chunk

I have 2 favorite jig styles. The first one is a brush jig, it makes for a great flipping jig with a zoom speed craw, rage bug and/or a rage craw.

my second favorite jig is a sparkie jig. The head shape makes for a perfect skipping jig whether it’s docks, lay downs or pontoons. I use mostly zoom speed craws but will use a rage craw and rage bug as a trailer as well

Seibert's Dredge or Northstar Baits Black Series. Basically the same skirt and alien-style head with recessed eye, but Seibert uses an Owner Cutting Point hook and Northstar uses a heavier 3x needlepoint Mustad.

 

Strike King Rage Tail Craw, Netbait Sr Paca Chunk, and a Zoom Super Chunk. Rage Tail is a fast paddle, Sr Paca Chunk is a slow paddle, and Zoom Chunk is more finesse.

I make my own as well and I can narrow it down to two. Arky head, 3/8oz with 3/0oz VMC 7161 hook 50 strand silicone skirt in magic craw pattern (watermelon with blue tint) and a flipping blue Zoom super chunk Jr. trailer. The other is a round head 5/16oz with a 3/0hook (Eakins type jig) in my clear water craw pattern with a River Rock Baits Jake's craw trailer in light special color.

Allen, do you know where I can find any Prowler pro eel chunks??? I saw the Prowler reference, there chunk trailers are great but I think they went out of business.

I have been finding them on Ebay and one Facebook page.  Let me find the guy on Facebook and ask if he has any.

Throwing jigs 100% depends on conditions.  Throwing a football head is grass can be tedious.  Throwing a grass jig in rocks gets stuck much more often than a football jig in rocks.  I fish standing t amber quite a bit and when the 10" worm isn't working, I quickly switch to a 5/16 Eakins jig.  Sometimes I use the small Eakins craw trailer but more often I use the Netbait paca trailers with the floppy legs.

My favorite jig is the swimjig that @Munkin makes in the sunfish color. Works like a charm!

Thanks! They work really well for LM and blue cats.

 

I didn't post it before but this is my #1 jig period a 5/16oz green pumkin with a super chunk jr trailer. I cannot count how many fish I have caught on this jig in the last 15 years.

This Jig : I bought 50 in bulk from someone on eBay for $30 dollars a few years ago. They have a recessed line tie, ribbed texture skirt and two rattles. Seller said they were Terminator brand but I’m not so sure ? Because all the terminators I’ve seen have an exposed line tie. But whatever they are, they are excellent for casting, swimming, skipping and flipping moderate cover. I pair them with Zoom Chunks or Yum Christie Craws

That is definitely a Terminator jig as I have a few of them. Not sure if they still make those anymore?

90% of the Time I fish my own and jigs 10% a variety of over the counter jigs. Trailers 75% are pork rind and 25% are soft plastic GYCB Hula grubs or Berkley Chigger Craws.

Yamamoto Flappin' Hog is a fantastic bait whether rigged Texas or as a trailer. There's something about this bait, I think it's the profile, that bass really like. I've thrown them in the exact same spot where I just threw a Senko and it was taken instantly when the Senko was rejected.

I’m not sure,  I’ve searched Terminator Jigs and everything they currently make has an exposed style line tie. Luckily I have enough of these for a very long time!

I've been throwing a lot of Dirty Jigs recently. One reoccurring problem that I've had with them (and most brands) is that the trailers do not last long. I ordered a handful of the 6th sense jigs with the screw lock to see if those will keep the trailers on for longer periods of time.
