How small a jig is commenly used for bluegills, I use them as small as a 1/180 sometimes, just wondered if that is a common size or if you guys think a bigger jig is better for bluegill, I also make my own spoons out of #0 and #1
willow leaf spinner blades, the work great anybody else trying things like that ?
Hey Tim, I use jigs as small as 1/124 oz for gills, but find that I catch most of my 'jig' fish on a 1/64 or a 1/80 oz jig, usually tied with brown or black craft hair with a strand or two of flashabou accent. Nothin fancy, just something to look like a critter trying to get away. Alot of guys tie their own on this site and it seems that red, purple and lavender shades are pretty popular for big gills.
