      Don't see Buck tail on bass jigs much any more, would bulk up the tail; marabou has nice action, my preferance for panfish jigs; have caught quite a few bass ...more while jigging marabou for crappie.

      I like it. You've been really helpful. I'll give it my all. FS need some quality trailers to go with @NFTJigs !

      @LivewellHero I think try several ideas. Let your mind think like a fish and everything you could notice about a lure. Every individual component from head to tail.. ...more Then work them in a bath tub.
    13. Christian Holyoak 0
      lots of water as you work the jig. Maybe also some legs or curl tails to give bulk and action
    14. Christian Holyoak 0
      What would you think of a craw chunk with the feather claws to puksate and move on their own as the jig rests, but the bid of the craw has a ring around it to act ...more almost as a scrounger to displace
    15. lemesnil 0
      @LivewellHero ....think of the look and feel..But think the physics of motion on textures in water ..And we will all buy from you .Think about your name being on ...more pro tour boats. Aim to beat the best!!
    16. lemesnil 0
      @LivewellHero... And when the bait stops the claws(feathers) have a subtle flare .... It's like having several different speeds, shapes,and actions! And they ...more are scented! You can make this affordable
    17. lemesnil 0
      @LivewellHero now you're talkin.Notice the bulk of the tail section and how much water it displaces, this with help the jig skirt flare with a kick... The feathers ...more will close fast like a real craw ...
    18. Christian Holyoak 0
      I could incorporate feathers... I do like that idea. Hm, what else? It would be scent infused, Ill try to make it natural looking but also with lots of action. Nice ...more and bulky as well. Any other ideas?
    19. lemesnil 0
      @LivewellHero create something like them .... I'm pretty sure if you did I'd buy from you... We need a smart young driven mind to take us beyond even these! ...more These are different and awesome. Be better!

    14. lemesnil 0
      @Ben_Sanford .. An undressed jig head is fine .... And works very well when water is to hot for bass to accept larger baits... Big fish will sometime prefer smaller ...more baits in hotter conditions...
    15. lemesnil 0
      @Ben_Sanford as for jig heads and trailer jigging ... Work it as a trailer on a skirt jig the same way you would work the specific skirted jig style.. Football,swim,finesse ...more etc etc.
    16. lemesnil 0
      @Ben_Sanford weightless t-rigging is fantastic in the warmer months do to its ability to hard glide = more time in their striking zone...drag ,pop pop stall drag ...more and repeat ..work various speeds.
    17. lemesnil 0
      @Ben_Sanford .completely through the hydrilla and onward into your primary strike zone. Never use more weight then what you need when punching and always use heave ...more gauge hooks. And lower gear ratios.

      @Ben_Sanford when using this punching I work 80lb suffix 832 line on my megabass LIN 10 mars for winch like purposes . Use the smallest weight of tungsten that ...more will still allow you to penetrate ...

      @Ben_Sanford ...faster drops of it being t-rigged drives them crazy super aggressive ... I also work a stiffer gauged ewg #2 as apposed to the #3 when c-rigged...

      @Ben_Sanford Bass hold in a more dissolved oxygen rich band being in weeds or other types of structure... A c-rig allows your bait to work different depths and present ...more your lure slower than t-rigs...
    22. lemesnil 0
      @Ben_Sanford In the super hot months and very cold I tend to work it either weightless and in deeper water situations when I'm searching for them I work it c-rigged ...more it truly depends on the oxygen band

      @Ben_Sanford yes to all this rigging types and even weightless texas style. Depending on the time of day and water conditions and time of year and body of water ...more I'm fishing this lure can be productive
