I tie them myself ,nothing fancy just attach to a jig hook . I am surprised they are not on the market but I find dead grey squirrels dead in Suburbia here and cut of the tails to utilize .

Great Catch JW!

Hi JWinpisinger and thank you for your interest. I would think they would be as good as the commercial jigs out there simply because I made them for myself and want them simply to hold up, 95 percent of all my fishing is done with jigs. After they are tied I put at least 6 half hitches in them and coat the thread with head cement or some other finish on the tying thread. I'm always looking for good jig patterns for crappies so maybe down the road you'll see some new and different jigs.

Hi JW
You can get one of these little boats at Academy Sports. They carry the trolling motors and batteries, and everything else you will need to rig the boat out. You will not regret getting one of these little boats, it is so handy to just drop in the back of your pickup.

No special 'set up' of any kind JW....Just a ordinary,"run of the mill" point and shoot with the capacity for close-up macro photography and an 18x zoom built in zoom lens...a Panasoninc Lumix DMC-FC18.....certainly not one of your "high end" Cannons or Nikons(which are nice for sure but really don't need one for decent images) plus you don't have to change lenses all the time....this camera has worked well for me for years allready.....more important for a good fish photo is ...lighting....composition....very little "blur"....and numerous other details....which all add up to a decent photo
