Who Makes These?

15 posts in this topic

Found these jigs in a store near Cohasset MN. I think they are being made in MN or WI. Anyone know who is making these?  Thank you for your help. Sorry for the large picture!20150604_214845.thumb.jpg.7b8b6e193290c0

Looks very similar to a northland gill getter. Unfortunately I don't know the makers of this version.

I have seen some very similar at Mills FF & at Custom Jigs & Spins

I'll see them at various bait shops. They are typically sold in little plastic pouches, that are stapled shut. No company logos, slogans, advertisements, or anything. Just an orange price tag sticker.

​Willing to share any of those bait shops?  The place I found them had the jigs in a plastic tray.

Most of the time when I see jigs sold like that they are from Northland.  This look like it?

 

Gill getter by northland...  Northland Fishing Tackle is the name of the company.  They have a web site

the first thing that popped into my head was northland also.

but it still could be a local, small time maker selling jigs they are making.

I suppose they could be northland, but the unmarked pouches have always been cheaper than the northland packaged tackle. Joe's, vado's, blue ribbon, fleet farm, are just a few places I find them.

They are not from Northland or any "big" manuf. I believe it is from a smaller shop.  Kind of taking the place of Jeff Sundin Jigs. Similar in size and shape with better paint. If I remember correctly they are made in one of the following: Red Wing, Rochester or Wi.  Ha.

I wonder why someone would market a product like this without and ID on it.  Fishermen are notorious for wanting to buy the hot lure.  W/O ID it is difficult to do so.  So my cynical mind is wondering if someone is bootlegging seconds, selling something that has some type of defect or what.  A kid selling lemonade on the corner has a better sense of marketing than this outfit.

If one were to be shopping for jigs at Fleet Farm, like I was yesterday, they would find all sorts of jigs in plastic bags where the jigs themselves have no labels.  Jiggs Jigs etc.  

I think the equipment to put a logo on the jig must be expensive, whereas pouring heads and painting requires little in the way of capital equipment.  

I have had good luck buying jigs at a reasonable price on the bay of e.

Packaging is usually just as expensive, and many times more, than product in small tackle.

These look to be jammin jigs maybe?  But there are so many different manufactures(if you call them that)  Like it was mentioned, probably just a mom and pop shop.

I believe those were made by a local guide up in the Grand Rapids area.  It may have been Jeff Sundin but that is just a guess.  If you call Ben's Bait in Grand Rapids Ben will be able to tell you who it was as he told me when I was looking for them last year.  I believe the guide stopped making them a couple of years ago and/or sold them to Northland.  Good Luck!

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
