glass jigs on LOW?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

We are heading up to LOW this weekend. The resort we are going with said the eyes are hitting glass jigs. I cant find any anywhere at my local stores or online. I have plenty of standard and glow jigs, should I worry about the mysterious glass and glass glow jigs or forget about them? Anyone know where to get some?

Thanks, Erik

I dont think they are a necessity but you should be able to find the jigs at any of the bait shops around LOW. If youre like me, you'll buy more than you need. They came out a couple years ago. I forget the company that makes them but they come in several colors that are inside the glass that makes up the head of the jig. They do work but im sure other jigs will do you just as good too.

The way the fish are biting now, it doesn't matter what kind of jig you are using. I have heard over a dozen different jigs that were the best. I have had some of the best fishing I have ever had and used just a plain old gold roundhead jig. I am not saying you shouldn't buy some because you can never have too much tackle but if you can't find them, it is not the end of the world.

Teir called the nucleus jig, they came out a lomg time ago an were a big hit based on their uniqueness, they were expensive, about 5-6 bucks apiece, didnt take long to dies out, you cn still find some at the local bait shops up there, but not all carry them. Dont know if they even still make them, the shops that still have them, might still be carrying old stock. Sounds like they want to gt rid of that stock. Get yourself a red lindy flyer, red glow rattle varmit, a pink charmer, an use a bobber set an your all good.

Thanks for the replies. I did find old posts on the nucleus jigs, I haven't seen anywhere that sells them locally. Ill keep an eye out for them when we get up there but don't want to spend an arm and leg on a few jigs. Ill look into a few of the mentioned jigs you suggested.

Thanks All! Erik

Also known as tiger eye jigs. I looked for them at mills ff in st cloud and the guy told me they ordered them from the supplier but never got their order.

      I had to adjust both my garage doors springs to open my doors further. I was going to mount a light bar on mine for ice fishing but now i don't think I can. You also need watch out for the rope for the release. I closed it in my door and closed the garage as I backed out.

      Great info thanks for all the responses always new things to try!

      I put a light bar on top of my Prowler and almost ripped it off pulling into the garage. Another thing that almost got me was the bar hanging down from the quick release on the garage door chain drive track. Going to grind part of that off. Chains aren't in the cards this year, going to buy a new electric auger at the sports show tomorrow.  Happy wife, happy life 🙂. Hope we don't get all the snow they're talking about, that will really screw things up!

      Well I don’t care about the drought as it’s ice fishing time for me.

      Sorry to hear about your loss. Mntman, That is a lot to deal with.  As for fishing, between work and work at home I did not drop a line in the water after the end of august. Along with that, the water at my dock was getting pretty low with the bottom of the boat rubbing on a few rocks so pulled the boat out and set to removing them…picture are the results. (Where the rocks are is usually 12-14” under water) And yes the old fashion way with shovel and pry bar. Hope you have a merry Christmas and holiday season! The fish will be waiting for us all next spring!

      Any snow we get may help lakes and rivers but won't do much for soil moisture. Most will run off.   But Yea lakes and rivers could use a refill.

      We're still in a major drought.  Any moisture would be beneficial.   It is going to take an epic amount of snow this winter to even make a dent.

      Ya thats the issue my friend has too.  I should have mentioned that earlier but the issue is the garage door, technically not the size of the garage.
    • JerkinLips
      My Polaris Ranger barely fits under my garage door opening.  I have to prop the door open completely so it doesn't hit it.

      Definitely agree with this Clam frost is the real deal I picked some up last year I was running a four pound frost mono and three pound floro leader for my walleye rods last year and a 3 pound mono leader and 2 pound floro leader for pan fish. I set my drag lose so I pull out my line on the first drop this gets rid of all memory making it very sensitive. Sufix makes good stuff to and I love all their lines for summer time but in the winter I would give clam the slight edge.
