    Here are a few to look at. These are 3/8 1/2, 5/8 and a few 3/4 OZ hair jigs. The stingers are wire instead of line. These are all made by Ole Pete's

  6. What kind of hair do you guys use?
     
  7. I primarily use bucktail but will switch to synthetic or bunny strips.
     
  8. BIg Daddy I sure hope that fish was released since it is not a legal catch!!!!:)
     
  9. Legal or not, it was released. Lundy and I had our limit in about 10 minutes that day. It was a fun fishing extravaganza!
     
  10. What took so long to get your limit?:D I'm going to order some jigs this week from Ole Pete. Thinking about making my own but don't know where to start. Have some deer tails,can I use those?
