Im looking for a good jig head to use while ice fishing for lakers. the jig heads I've seen don't seem to be ideal, but do the job. are there any that you guys know of that are great? if any of you guys pour your own, would yo be interested in selling?
a bulk of them do not have the eye on top, so they do not allow the tube to sit horizontally in the water. the ones that have the eye on the top are topically lighter than i like to fish. there is also the problem of the hook itself, lakers have hard mouths, so id like to find some with high quality hooks.
I guess it would have been easier to ask what others use.
I got a lead pot two seasons ago and have not looked back, I keep slowly adding to my collection of molds. It's nice to be able to select the size hook you need and put the head on it that works right. most of the molds use a generic hook size and I've put other hooks in them that are not the designated hook and they come out great. I don't pour hoosk for anyone but myself though, it's time consuming.
I can't find the style I got on his site or his ebay listings, but he poured 1/2 , 3/4, and 1 oz. spro bucktail style (only way I can explain it, the ones with the eyeholes) jigs on 4/0-6/0 thin wire, wide gap, black-nickle hooks for us. They are tits.
A hand full of you referenced that you pour your own jigs. I have been looking forever to find a mold that sets the hook in the middle of the jig head. Is anyone willing to share with me where they got theirs? If you uncomfortable with posting it for everyone to see fee free to message me. Thanks in advance.
