Jig Tips

3 posts in this topic

What kind of jigs work well on Rainy (i.e. type, size, color, etc)? I understand it depends on the conditions, but I'd like to have a nice variety. After buying Cabelas out of crankbaits for last year's trip (and not using any of them)...I need to stock up on something for this year smile.gif. Any help would be appreciated...

Well I beleive in finding the 'eyes more than anything...once you find them the rest will fall into place. However, I have everything from 1/4 to 1/2 oz. Gold, chartreuse, and white are good colors for one coated jigs. However I like the two-three colored jigs. We were on a reef in Sand Bay last night that had a decent number of fish on it. The guy I was with had on a green jig, and I had on the blue/yellow/orange combo from Northland...and I was getting more bites. Could have been just dumb luck too! grin.gif

Anyhow Gold, Chartreuse, silver, yellow, and white are good colors for solid jigs.

As for Tri-colors and fire ball jigs...blue/yellow/orange, orange/yellow, Green/red/yellow, black/orange/green, and pink/yellow all have their place in my tackle box.

Hope that helps so you can go load up on goodies!! grin.gif

Thanks Lips...I agree you gotta find them, but you can never have enough tackle grin.gif. We'll swing in to 1 stop to pickup our bait and a nice assortment of Tri-colors...

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
