I just got done pouring about 100 1/2, 3/4 shad heads, and 100, 1, 2 3, and 4oz ball jigs. I powder coated them all the same color. If it ain't chartreuse, it aint no use as they say.
I fish most of them spec rig fashion with plastic bodies. Fin-S, Salt Water Assasins, Zooms, etc as well as shad bodies up to 9".
It's rare that my biggest fish of the trip, whether if flounder or striper does not fall to the jig.
I like to put a small chunk of protien on the hook for scent, but let the action of working the jig do the work attract the fish.
There's nothing like it.
