Skirt jigs
A guy from S.C. posted a pic of some jigs he and his buddy has been using for many years while crappie fishing. They use a vinyl piece for the body. I had to tye some with a chenille body and I really like the way they look.

RE: Skirt jigs
Those look excellent StumpHunter. Well done. Cool

What is the weight of your pill heads and the hook size?

Also, if you don't mind, what is the color of your jig heads? I like that too! Cool Cool (doubly-cool)

RE: Skirt jigs
Pup, the jighead is 1/8 w/#2 hook, round head. If I'm going to use eyes I use pliers to make a socket for the eyes before painting. The powder paint is a custom color I mixed a few months ago. I thought I had added it to the powder paint mix thread but I didn't, will add it there.
I used Harbor Freight powder paint. 1 part matte black--2 part yellow, makes a nice olive.

Nice jigs. Is the skirt material silicone that would be used on spinner baits??

Beagler, it is silcone skirt strips. You can get two jigs out of each skirt and with the solid end it is easy to wrap around the hook. I lay down a thread bed then use hard as nail to coat the thread then wrap the skirt to the hook. Here is a link for the skirts

RE: Skirt jigs
Great looking jigs!!!!! If you want to make them look like a mini bass jig - leave a legs a little long. Hang the legs over the top of the jig head - tie in and then put the chenille on and tie off. The legs will fall over the top of the chenille and be showing that color underneath. Have some fun with this one!!
