has anyone had any success with these new jigs?

I haven't been able to get any yet, but they really looked like the real deal.

I bought 8 of them with friend. We are disappointed with them. Only 5 of the 8 worked. I have not fished them alot but so far I have not caught anything on them.

Fishnbear or anyone that has bought the new Illuminator jigs. As with any new product you are about to find a defective one here and there. I know they will replace any defective ones. Send me a email and I will tell you how to get replacements. Yes they are legal in Minnesota its in the fishing rule book.

I put em down on a rattle reels over night several times and havent had much luck.

They did produce on Red but the walleyes up there bite on any thing. Pesky Walleyes...

Yeah, was just on their HSOforum-and they are sold in Minnesota, so you can bet they are legal. Is Cabelas ever going to stock them, anyone know?

i felt they were really big for the amount of weight. they have to find a way to get the size down and increase the weight. i would really like to try them in the stained waters of the old miss, but lake pepin would be the only place to try becasuse the current would wash them to new orleans beforefore they reached the bottom

Have yet to catch anything on them. Do you think it has anything to do with the harsh chemical smell coming off them?

Does anyone know what the smallest size they are offered in is? I saw them at Thorne and they looked like huge 1 oz. walleye jigs. I'm looking for somethign small for crappies or even gills.

I dunno...jigs that don't work, jigs that don't catch fish, harsh chemical smell. Maybe I won't be spending those big bucks for this jig...

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
