why fish green pumpkin jigs in grass?

Recommended Posts

i always hear to fish a green jig in grass. why would you do that. is it cause the crayfish match their environment? or is it just preference of the fisherman. i bought a bunch of texas craw and green pumpkin and forest jigs. just lookin for the best "environments" to fish them

It is the belief that they match/blend into their environment. I have proved to myself that those colors work anywhere though. I use black/blue jigs in grass to be honest. I like the pumpkin for docks and rocks myself.

Another take on it...we fish 5" pumpkin Senco's in weed lines and in the toolies, what's wierd is that's the one color they seem to prefer...I wish I knew why.

It's a reaction bite. They will usually always hit it on the drop.

because it is a lighter shade than black but dark enough to show a contrast to the grass but not dark enough to stick out like it don't belong there, plus bluegills have the same hue when around grass.

Its just a great color overall. Matches everything. Crayfish,bluegill, baitfish etc. Matches water color i think more than anything. Hard for a fish to distinguish that its not real. Maybe its just magic. One of things that cant be explained. Aint that right dick.
