A Few Jigs

Recommended Posts

Now I don't have the skill that some of the guys on here have with making baits but I decided to try my hand at making some jigs after making my own shakey heads for awhile now. They're 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 ounce heads poured on 4/0 and 5/0 Mustad megabite wide gap hooks with Do-it skirts. I tried wire wrapping the skirts so they'll last longer. Not the prettiest job but I can say for sure they do catch fish! First one is Texas craw.

and my first try at a chatterbait in dirty herring. Got a 5 pounder on it my first time using it so I know it works!

It's been a lot of fun and a lot more work building these than I thought it would but catching fish on your own bait is a pretty good feeling!

Those are some nice looking jigs. I especially like the copper craw and the natural craw. Did I say I like the craw baits??

The very first bait has already accounted for several fish over 5lbs in a variety of different bodies of water. I have a whole bunch more colors but I already felt like I went overboard on the number of pictures :D . Glad you guys like them!

Very nicely done. It's not about how beautiful they look, it's if they catch fish. I like the 1st one and the Big O. I too am a jig and craw fisherman.

That chatterbait is pretty cool. It's kind of like a finesse chatterbait! B)

The chatterbait is actually a 3/8 ounce football head and a large chatterbait blade with a Zman trailer skirt so it's really a pretty big profile bait, my camera just sucks so it's hard to tell from the picture. I have made a couple on 1/8 ounce heads and trimmed the blade down for a smaller profile. My wife does well with small chatterbaits so I wanted to make some she could use on a spinning rod.

Cadman I could only hope to make jigs that look even close to as good as the ones you tie! This ones do for sure catch fish though, I have pictures to prove it ;)

That one ate the Texas craw color in about 25 feet of water in a strip pit earlier this month.
