DIY jig head.

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

I made a similar post on the Florida regional board then decided it might be useful to fishermen all over. This technique allows you have a very light jig head on a hook large enough to handle a big fish.

 

The jig shown uses a Mustad short shank live bait hook. (I can get the model # if anybody needs it.) This particular jig is rigged weedless (read snag less) for fishing over oyster bars and other rough bottom.

 

Of course, they can be painted but I never do. I use the short shank hook jigs for fishing live bait but they can be tied with bucktail, feathers or nylon. Soft plastics too. I use a minnow similar to Yankee Killifish for Flounders and Fiddler Crabs for crab eating species. By removing the fan like tail of a Shrimp, you can fish shrimp backwards or forwards.

The hook is a Mustad 9175 - we use them for tail hooks on plugs and for teasers. Nice idea for a jig head and strong hook in a hurry icon14.gif
