The Good Old Days of 50 Cent Jigs

4 posts in this topic

Anybody remember the good old days when you could pick out your favorite jigs for fifty cents a pop? Seems today those same jigs are $1 to $2.50. Ouch.

With winter fast approaching I started thinking about getting everything organized for first ice. This weekend I opened up my jig boxes. Quite a bit of value in there for a collection of hooks and paint. But a few of them caught my eye. Late last winter I bought some Tiger jigs from Outdoor Pro Series. I was impressed. Caught a bunch of fish, enough to shoot a little underwater footage of the gills and crappies destroying them. Those jigs worked out great and caught some memorable fish.

Seeing those jigs brought back the memories of a couple nice late ice trips but they also reminded me that quality, fish-catching jigs don't have to cost you an arm and a leg. The good old days of 50 cent jigs are still here. Check out those Outdoor Pro Series Jig Kits before you hit the first ice to get into those active fish, and save some money to get you to the lake. Sharp hooks, vibrant colors, quality paint and lead, and all the jig body styles you need. You might think I'm just trying to sell you something you don't need, but add up your purchases when you buy the exact same jigs at the gas station counter for a couple bucks a pop and then try to tell me these jigs aren't worth every penny.

Even with a little shipping, an unbeatable per-unit price that is available all year round.


Get a few for first ice or Christmas. I wouldn't mind a few in my stocking, that is for sure!

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
