No snagg jigs

2 posts in this topic

I have never used these jigs before and was kind of curious about the wire guard.

I got some Lindy ones and the way they come in the box, it looks like if a fish was going after it they would hit their nose on the wire guard the way it sticks out, heh!,
obviously spooking it away.

Question is, how is the guard suppose to be,

just the way they cam ein the box sticking up about a 1/4 inch past the tip of the hook?

or do they need to be adjusted?

thanks

I have been trying these jgs a little this summer. There ability to climb over logs is great. And I also like the swimming action. I have been ptiching them to some snag infested shorelines on the rivers.
There could be some inprovements to the jig. The wire weed gaurd is one of them. I have been bending the weed gaurd so that the last .25" of the wire runs parralel to the hook shank. I have also tried snipping some of the wires off. Dont think it needs so many. I have also had to take the group of wires and untwist them and spred them out.
My perfict idea of a jig is to have larger hook gaps and longer shanks for fishing plastics. Two fiber weed gaurds. More weight choices with hooks that dont change with the weight of the jig.
My plastic and minnows dont change size why would I want to put a smaller hook in the same size bait.
It would be nice to find a mold for the veggie jigs and be able to make my own adjustments to them.

    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
