Best flipping jigs

Postby JerryC » Wed Aug 14, 2013 4:25 am

So i finally have my flipping game down pat now that I have a boat.. from a kayak it can only be done standing up. I was looking at the revenge flipping jigs and was wondering what weight suggestion you guys had for me? I feel like i shouldnt be throwing anything under 1/2 oz weight... let me know!

I fish with some guys who will throw a 1/4oz jig on braid and a spinning setup in flipping situations. Sometimes they want something smaller/slower drop like that. Other times they want a full ounce whizzing by their face (even in shallow water). 1/2oz is the right starting point though...I'd suggest you not go too crazy with colors. Get something pumpkin, and something blue/black, just go to town and try to build confidence.

Use whatever weight will get down through the cover and to the fish. Most important thing. Sometimes a heavier jig will get more bites, because of the fast drop, but in general, if a lighter jig will get down; use it. Also, if it's windy, go to a heavier jig; so it's easier to place the bait where you want to. I'll use anything from a 3/8 oz to a 1 1/2 oz; depending on the cover.

I use the Dirty Jigs Tour Level No-Jack Flipping jigs. They work great down here in Florida. If fishing around boat docks go with a 1/2oz and a netbait paca chunk or a baby brush hog for a trailer. Around grass go with a 3/4oz and a strike king rage tail shellcracker for a trailer. Just make sure you separate the tail part.

Jerry, you ever end up buying any of the Revenge jigs? If so you liking them? Ive been using them for some time now and they are one of my favorites. Awesome colors in basically anything you could want and a solid hook that does the job. They seem to never get hung up around very heavy wood on our rivers, and we have a ton of it from all the hurricanes. Pretty much only use 1/2oz with a few 3/8 and 3/4 thrown in the mix and they all work great. The All Terrain Tackle Rattling AT jig is another good one to try, pretty cheap cost wise with good performance.
