I've been working on perfecting this thing and I think I'm getting close. 1oz head with a powder painted magnum blade, 10/0 Gamakatsu black nickel hook, wire keeper, upgraded line tie, no split ring connection to fail, with a hand poured 6" fat impact style trailer. Looking for some big mommas that go "thump" in the night.

Simple pattern, wonder if the walleye would look at them.  I kind of had smallmouth and clear water on my mind when I painted them.

Chartreuse belly and purple back squarebills have been a solid producer for me for largemouth for years.

Tied up the rest of the jigheads.  I am going to end up with a million jigs I fear.

 

What's the best way to store skirting tabs?  I was thinking in the oem plastic sleeves kept in a worm binder?

I had some blades that needed to be put   into service . These baits were poured inexpensively probably less than a dollar each .The one  on the left has a Strike King blade . I picked up a whole bunch of these with the ball bearing swivel years ago for a quarter a  pack . The middle one has Excalibur offset blades . The original bait the  wire broke off last week. On  the right, i dont know what the main blade  is or where I got it . Stanley Wedge , maybe ?  The skirts are Terminator skirts that I found on clearance . Unpainted heads .The   lead is free . I have enough lead to last me for the rest of my life  and have given away a hundred lbs of it .

I work 2nd Shift so not much to do once I am off work.  Decided to paint a few in some real basic patterns that catch fish.

Right now I have been storing them in gallon freezer bags with the color and where I bought them in the label area. About 1/2 the skirt tabs I have received in the past couple of months have been stuck together. I take the tab, separate the stands then put it in a freezer bag so they are ready when I need them.

Thanks for the storage suggestions guys.   Next question, other then lightly taping them with painters tape, is there a better way to keep the weedguard isolated from the skirt?  The tape is a little fussy but it makes getting the skirt arranged a lot less annoying.

Put the guard in after you have your skirt the way you like it, also makes tieing the skirt a little easier also.  My molds allow me to do this, I know some require the guard to be poured into the head.   If you are purchasing heads with weed guards in them you can just pull them out with a pair of pliers and replace them with something of your own later.

If you go with the binders, let me know how that works.

Already having the ability to pour and paint jigs, I decided to go in with a friend to buy all we needed for bass jigs.  We chose the Do-It Poisontail mold.  It seems like a great all-around jig.

 

They are already producing some nice results.  The bass were on a major crankbait bite the other day, but I had to bust out one of the jigs to give it a test run.

Moved on to tiny jigs.  This is a single tab of crinkle silicone folded over twice giving a thick and short skirt.  With the 3" grub trailer it comes in just above 5/16oz and in bathtub testing it looks like it will be nice little finesse swimbait.  I have no idea where I got those heads from, I have had a pair of them kicking around my misc jigheads box for years.  Anyone know what they are or what that style is called?

Funny, I found them again just this last weekend.  They are from Eiron Jigs .  It's a small scale manufacturer and you have to call your orders in, which explains why I never got anymore of them.
