  My best painted jigs
Posted by: JUNGLEJIM1 - 05-03-2021, 07:17 AM - Forum: Paintshop - No Replies

                    I finally got the crinkle paint figured out and have been painting some cool heads. Favorite so far are these 1/4 oz poison tails. The secret is after painting the jig will look black and when you cure the heads the colors the colors appear like magic, been curing mine at 300 even though it suggests 400 which I think is to hot and developed cone heads on a few.

  Crinkle Powder Paint
Posted by: JUNGLEJIM1 - 04-18-2021, 06:34 AM - Forum: Paintshop - Replies (5)

I purchased some crinkle powder paint and so far gold is working pretty well on jigs and blades. Simple concept of dipping in the base color then into the crinkle and heat again and the color comes through most of the time. One pic is a blade under uv light. A few ties as well.

  Gamakatsu B10S Stinger hook spinnerbaits
Posted by: JUNGLEJIM1 - 03-27-2021, 08:13 AM - Forum: Jig Pics / Recipes - Replies (3)

Something new I came up with recently this winter. I thought these hooks would fit my 1/16 and 1/8 spinnerbait mold and they did so I poured some using B10S Stinger hooks in size 1, 2 and 4 and tied up a few. Also used Daiichi 1750 streamer hooks in size 4 because the hooks are wicked sharp. Can't wait for the waters here to warm up another 5 degrees and put some to work.  I really like these with duck feathers.

Opossum has been my favorite hair the past couple of years. Actually purchased several skins and had two cut into crosscut strips for the bodies. Here are just some of what I've been making this year.

  Spring Bucktails
Posted by: RockGeo - 03-26-2021, 09:10 PM - Forum: Jig Pics / Recipes - Replies (9)

   

After a number of years of following JigCraft, I have finally worked up the courage to post some of my work.  This has been a great site for me and I have learned a tremendous amount on the art of making jigs.  Thank you for sharing your skills and knowledge.  I continue to search the archives looking for new ideas, tips and creations.  The tutorials are an excellent resource as well.

I have attached some of the jigs I have tied this past week for use this spring on some of the Missouri highland reservoirs.  My "specialty" is bucktail jigs, which I dye to my color preferences.  I pour my own jig heads, powder coat them and my wife paints the eyes on them.  Any comments to help me improve my work is appreciated.

In the top photo are two 1/8 oz. spring crayfish imitations.  Spotted bass tend to feed heavily on crayfish early in the year.

The second photo is of a couple 1/8 oz. crappie jigs that are supposed to represent shad.

The third photo is of a couple 1/4 oz. bass jigs.

The last photo is a couple 1/4 oz. jigs that I have found effective on walleyes used to chasing shad.

These are some of what I've been working on during our recent cold spell. Ice has been off the small lakes and ponds for five days so water is still very cold. I was using a 1/48 with a #10 sickle hook under a weighted float and caught a couple nice crappie and a bass yesterday. Biggest crappie was 14.5 inches long.
