Heavy Jigs

Recommended Posts

When do you use those big 1/2oz - 3/4oz jigs? Deep water?

Deeper water and/or windy conditions. Also when Flipping/ Pitching, fall rate is important for the bite and often additional weight is better. You can cover more water faster pitching a heavier jig because it gets down quicker. With the different styles of jigs, Swim, Casting/Flipping, Football etc., each has their own specific use although they will crossover easily in many conditions with their weights being similar. This is only the tip of the iceberg for an explanation, as there are many more details to consider and to completely understand requires a lot of hands on experience.

I guess I better get on it then, I'm looking to order some Big O jigs from GMAN. I was wondering, what color jig did you use from him that you used the Falcon Craw trailer? Also with the Bama craw color work just as well as the PB&J color?

What Big O said, and to get through thick weeds.

Both of those colors PBJ and Bama are great colors. I sell quite a few of both.

I use them in deep water and areas with high current. Lighter jigs can get washed under rocks and such and get hung up, heavier jigs go straight to the bottom and don't get washed around.

Im addition to what all has said, and i gree with them 100%, I like heavier jigs in the spring and late fall. They give you a bigger profile which has produced all my largest fish to date in those seasons.

I agree with Andy C to his rational about lighter jigs in current, but I absolutely love to drift light jigs in rivers with a nice current, letting it wash into a nice bassy hangout. Pretty much like fishing a dry fly.
