At a Glance: Jig & Jig Heads
Jigs and jig heads are lead, tungsten, or tin weights molded onto specially designed hooks with long shanks to accept natural baits, soft baits, and materials to imitate various creatures. Jigs and jig heads come in a large variety of styles, colors, and sizes, often within the specific lure series let alone as a tackle category. These options are geared towards specific tactics, types of predatory fish and the soft baits designed to attract them, while often being versatile enough for multiple applications and tactics as well as specific conditions in which you may be fishing. Fishing conditions which should be taken into consideration may include water currents, vegetation, water clarity, depth, and the time of the year. Many jigs and jig heads work best in vertical jigging presentations such as ice fishing or from boats, while others allow for great casting distances and others are exceptional when float fishing. Painted and unpainted jig heads are available, as well as finished jigs, plain jig heads, and jig kits. FishUSA offers a tremendous selection of jigs and jig heads for panfish, trout, bass, pike, walleye, and many saltwater species.
The most popular brands of jigs and jig heads at FishUSA include Fiskas, Clam, Northland, Strike King and Lindy.
