help locating jig

7 posts in this topic

Hi, a few years back (10+) i purchased some jigging spoons from Luck's bait, they were packaged individually and as i recall they were called "Walleye Willow" spoons, i don't know who made them but last year when i was up there i couldn't find them --- the were shaped like a willow, with glow eye's, in colors of half: pink/gold, green/gold, black/silver, orange/black -- any idea if they are around yet and who might make them? -- thanks

I think they are made by JB lures

Thanks for the tip AceintheHole. i went out and checked their web site and the closest they have to it would be the Weasle -- which isn't quite it -- the lure i'm looking for has a slight curv/bend to it and it flutters down fairly slowly, considering it's size which is about 1.25 inches (not counting the single hook attached)-- thanks anyways - i'll continue the hunt. i have a few assorted colors left but my buddy was pulling in walleyes last year with one i loaned him (only color i had - go figure) - he now refuses to give it back smile.gif

I think I know what your taliking about, Just a thin piece of metal curved with a single hooke attached to a split ring, painted in two colors with an eye painted on, if so I ordered mine ten years ago through cabelas summer fishing catalog. Boar

Log Cabin has em or at least had. Good lure, got a chartruse/green eye and a gold/red eye on two of my poles from last year. Flutters real slow, big ones hit em hard. Makes a great search lure as well. It lures em in then, then take ur lil jig n minnow on your other rig,- BAM BAM BAM,-tick - fishon!

NOt to be confused with the Sutton-willow spoon, the "Hoggies Walleye Willospoon" has a single mustad hook, along with a swivel, and is much lighter. Manufactured by Bait Rigs Tackle co in Madison WI, Their web adress is baitrigs daught com.

They are a great lure!!! i've used them all over and they work -- The fact that they have a slow presentation/fall rate is what triggers those fish -- they work wonders on a dead stick - slowly lift and let it flutter down --- i may have found them on the web at JR Lures -- thanks for all the help

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
