You may have to adjust and play with the volume to see what the fish really want!

My favorites are Pro Tackle short shanks. They have flat sides to give a little different fall with the bait.

I like Cabelas Walleye Wobble jigs, Whistler jigs are good ones too, tipped with a minnow in the spring. Later in the summer I like Northland Phelps floaters with a leech

I would suggest getting one of those combo boxes that has different sizes and colors so you can find what works on your lakes. Also Lindy now has those new jigs where the different colored lead heads clip onto the hook. Interesting concept.

I'm trying the lindy jigs this season, so far the hook size is the only thing that is a little off. But it is very early in the season.

Do you mean that the hook seems too big if you are using a smaller jig head?

Haven't used em,(New Lindy Ex-Change Jigs) but the hook looks huge, esp. if using the 1/8 oz head. Looks like an 1/8 oz of "hook" with an 1/8 oz head. Anyone using them with much success??

I've been using the Phelp's Half-Face Jigs for 6 years now, and I barely ever find myself using anything else! Great hooks, wonderful paint, and the stand-up style works for every situation!

I like the lindy Fuzz-E-Grubs, especially in glow.

I was using a 3/8oz. Whistler jig chartuse/orange and added a small treble stinger to it. Put on a whole crawler and stuck the stinger about four inches from the jig and drifted with it and caught walleye's better than spinner/crawler's or plain single hooked leeches.

Caught 2-26.5" eye's, and a 27 7/8" eye on this jig!

where i fish pink seems to be the ticket. type doesnt matter as much as color, usually use standard gumball, smallest possible for wind/ current. cant figure it out because they slam the darker colored swims and raps, and ironically the bigger the better. might have to try the lindy if the hook is a little bigger.

It depends on where I'm fishing, but Fuzz-E-Grubs and the Hair jigs from Moore's Bait & Tackle are usually what I'm using.

Multi-colored jigs are probably my favorite. The color changes seems to provide a little bit of a "flash" that catches the fish's attention a little better at times. Orange/Chart, Black/White(Pearl) with a little red dot on the top, Black/Red.

Super-glo chart. seems to always be a good producer too.

i just got home from leech and used the new lindy jigs. LOVED them. could change sizes very fast and get back to fishing without having to cut off and retie. it was very windy and changing hooks was a pain.

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
