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?

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.

    • I think they are a valiant and hard working people who suffered under Communist  soviet rule for many years.  I like their sausage also.

    • So what do you think about the poles?
    • "You can't let the people in this country that are the poor people, the people without the money and resources go without healthcare," Trump told the MSNBC program. "I just can't even imagine. You're sick and you can't even go to a doctor. I say one thing, can you not let 25 percent of the people of the country because they have no money go without something?"
        This sure sounds like some form of government sponsored healthcare to me..
    • Your preferred solution would be "nothing", right?   So, sounds like your solution is in the running...   That would be to repeal the whole kit and caboodle and let the people, the employers, the insurance companies, the drug companies and the medical providers duke it out.   I have no information as to what Trump's intentions are beyond repealing ACA.  I'm sure you could find out with a few minutes googling  
    • Nah, you posted a one work reply.  And folks were reefing on d2e over it.  Just noting it was PB that made the original mistake.  
    • .....and I'm not even mad at my bro.
    • The walleye have been MIA on the Iowa River around Coralville this fall. It is not the high water, I don't think--high water spots that have worked great in the past have not produced any walleye for me this year. Not much luck for white bass and wiper, either.   What I have gotten in to the last couple weeks is a nice smallmouth and spotted bass bite, of all things. This is in one of my spots that seldom produced black bass in the past with water levels where they are now. No huge fish, but lots of smallies and spots up to 15" or so. Also a lot of the 6" black crappies that seem to be everywhere on Lake Macbride and the Iowa River this fall.
