bulk fireball jigs?

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where to get fireball jigs or something simular with the extra eyelit for stinger hooks in bulk? Im looking for a kit that has 1/8 to 1/2oz or buying bunch of each weight separately.

thanks

That's a good question. I have seen gumball jigs with 100 to a pack but I have never seen fireball jig in that #.

I think cabelas sells a pack like that in packs of 25.

I don't use many stringer hooks that clip on any more. They come unhooked from bait just to snag the bottom. I have been using the stringer rig that you hook over the top of a bait.(Rubber or plastic coated loop)plus I can use them on standard jigs.

Haven't used the Cabela's version, but look like a good deal if they fish the same. But, unless you're fishing the river, or other snag infested waters, 10 or 12 at a time is better than 25 or 100. I've bought too many up front, and wound up with beat up jigs, rusty hooks in some cases, and discolored heads. This could have been avoided by storing them better / taking only what I needed, I guess.

I've never had jigginjim's problem with the fireball stingers (when I feel I need them, which isn't too often), and find them much easier to keep "lifelike" presentation then plastic coated, over the hook and bark type stingers. Good luck.

I believe Milaca Unclaimed Freight has some of the biggest bulk buy (fireball style/color) jig head packs I have seen and at a good price.

The other thing I have come to love is the Lindy Exchange Jig bulk kit. They work awesome and you get a ton of sizes.

    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
