I am intrigued with this stuff, and as it seems it can`t be too hard. Does anybody have experience? Would love to combine it with powderpaint.

  Some random ties
Posted by: HatchetKnot - 03-29-2020, 11:15 PM - Forum: Jig Pics / Recipes - Replies (3)

I've been working from home since March 16th so I've been able to get a little time in front of my vise. I have been learning new techniques like palmering and I really prefer that look over others. I realize it's not always right for whatever pattern being tied but have been messing around with it. This afternoon my 3yo daughter helped me come up with these and I'm pretty happy with them. She called the black and yellow one "Bumblebee" and the olive one "Greenbean" because we had just eaten dinner and she realized it was the same colors as the green beans she had just had. It's been fun but I need to place an order for some new materials and colors so I can dial it in some more. Any tips or critiques are always welcome!

  Corona Time - Panfish
Posted by: AtticaFish - 03-29-2020, 10:58 PM - Forum: Jig Fishing - Replies (7)

Well, since I am part owner of a small retail and print shop that mainly works with schools..... I've had a lot of time on my hands with the current Covid shutdown of schools and pretty much all retail biz. Only working a couple days a week to keep up with the slow days and been fishing on off days. Hard to keep my days straight.

Fished Tuesday and had a tough day. One nice big pumpkinseed about 3 casts in and no bites for a couple hours. Ended up fishing 3 different upgrounds. Last res I tried I ended up catching a bunch of 6.5" and 7" bluegill to at least make half a meals worth to bring home.

[Image: 29a1f88d4c38d24ff3cf0a1330d38590.jpg]

Got back out Thursday morning bright and early. Air temp was cool in the morning and cloudy. As soon as the sun popped out I found a good school of crappie! Caught them mainly on a tungsten jig with a hackle feather tied on and tipped with maggots. Pretty much all the fish were out as far as I could cast but only 2' down under a float. When I found the school, it was every cast. 29 fish for the day.

Went this morning to clean the shop basement in case the Sandusky came up any farther and tried to flood us. Got out to the reservoir at about 1:00 in 40mph winds and walked to the upwind side. Tried out deeper and no bites. Finally tried up near shore and found an excellent mix of panfish with a bonus 12" perch. 3 perch in total and a mix of bluegill and crappie to fill out my total (23) for the day. Guess I'm getting good at my 2nd job.

Even caught a few racing stripe crappie!

I think Candy approves of my new 2nd job. She is the cleanup crew for all the scrap pieces of fish.

  Recovering nicely
Posted by: Kdog - 03-28-2020, 10:12 PM - Forum: JigCraft.com - Replies (3)

Been a while since I posted,  about 80 recovered from THR end of november. there no joint pain,  muscles still argue and regaining stamina is tough.  Been playing with a couple new jigs,  Bought the Do It free style mold,,,, dont waste your money. Last couple molds Ive gotten are junk.  DoIts quality is awful..  not sure why but the molds are tempermental.  Do not cast well, but I guess you get what you pay for, Glad I have a good supply  of drop out.

Anyhow glad spring is here  even though we are under stay at home orders, the great outdoors is still safe.

Have some down time due to COVID-19, so I decided to get on the bait making grind! I ordered a dual injector, and got to play with it today, love how the colors turned out. Also made some clear/red and clear/blue flake stickbaits for a customer!

Well guys it sure has been a while! I’m alive and well, been busy working so much and not much time to fish. I ended up giving my jig tying equipment to my best friend, and I focus on bass more than anything now. Ironic considering the name right? 

Well this forum sparked my love for all things tackle creation so here’s some of my latest Jigs I’ve dreamt up! 


The fish in the picture was caught on my home made tremor jig, paired with a home made finesse worm!

Some catches on from recent times & some pics of what they ate.
This is a "jackhammer" which is basically a 20$ chatterbait Huh , but with my personal touch. 
Allow me to introduce the "chattering chicken hammer"!
