Jigs

60+ jigs. Most are hand made by some very generous folks!

Lots of Black/Blue and many other colors and variations. 1/8oz to 1/2oz.

$2 each or 3 for $5.

All proceeds go to the Wounded Heroes Fishing Project.

Re: Jigs

I'm interested, are these heavy gauge hooks or kind of normal gauge?

I don't jig fish a lot but it's something I will probably need to do more to get some cold bass once winter comes around.

So...as Bill Clinton said, "it all depends what the meaning of".

The lighter ones certainly have a lighter gauge hook but strong. The heavier ones have a stout hook, in my opinion.

Two thoughts here Junger

First is on heavy gauge hooks.  I use a light gauge hook when bass fishing and have got some pigs along with 30+ pound catfish, 50" pike, and over the legal slot 'eyes.  Never had a hook failure.  I avoid very heavy gauges.  Here's a scenario as to why - what's easier to implant into your finger - a needle?  Or a Nail?  The thin gauge needle will penetrate your skin and fingers easier than the nail. 

Heavy gauge hooks are reserved for salt or brackish water - and even then, it's species specific.

Next your idea that jigs are only good for cold water bass.  Sure a jig will work in the winter, but I fish jigs when the water's wet.  During the summer months, bass will swallow a tube and for a c-n-r angler, that's a death sentence to the fish.  But for some reason, they will only mouth a jig and are less likely to swallow them
