When and how do you determine what color jig head to use????

Whatever is in stock in the weight and style I need haha. 

 

Usually I just order bare jigheads. The paint gets all messed up anyways. 

 

On bucktails I stick with white, and the occasional black. But usually white is the first I grab and use day or night.

unpainted. because they are cheaper...

 

I really never go out of my way to match colors for jig heads, i go more by how heavy of a jig I need for presentation purposes

 

Bucktails are white, pink, or chartreuse

Just make sure they match whatever nail polish you happen to be wearing...

 

Otherwise- white, chartreuse, or unpainted.

I've read Trout like pink, many people swear by red, orange is a natural color in ghost shrimp.

 

Why do you choose white, chartreuse, or grey?

White- pretty much if a universal color

Chartreuse- stripers see it very well

Unpainted- neutral

I never felt head color means that much. It’s sort of odd because if you fished enough jigs you have to have run onto situations where overall jig color matters often. I stand by what I said about head color though. Maybe in relation to the size of the presentation it’s just so small to really matter maybe? Better to concentrate on the overall hair color, quality, length, fullness and of course trailer type and color.
