Finesse flip jigs

Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

Finesse flip jigs

Postby pharmboy » Tue Mar 17, 2015 11:26 am

Any strong recs on light compact flipping jigs. Looking at D&L baby advantage, missile ike mini flip and the lethal bug...but many others to choose from. Anyone started using these on pressured or northern waters?

How small do you want to go? The keitech Guard Spin jig with a 2" Netbait paca chunk is deadly. The keitech casting jig model 1 is great too if you want something a little bigger with a stouter hook.

There's always the Eco Pro Kira jig, too. Kinda like a Keitech, but with a bigger hook.

I've been looking at those. Are they a good quality hook and a compact size?

I started fishing the DB Baby structure jig and love it. I can pair it with several different trailers. It comes in 1/4 and 3/8. I also use the Keitech but I'm parital to the DB Baby jig now.

I make my own finesse flipping jigs as it allows me to make the perfect jig for the areas I want to fish. My favorite is a 3/16oz with a light weed guard with a short shank 3/0 Owner 5313 hook, I like using it around boat docks, and sparse cover but it is really nice when tied with craft fur like a Punisher hair jig, that makes for a killer cold water presentation.

I've been using the D & L Baby Advantage for the last 6 or 7 years. The Bass really eat this jig and best of all, they stay buttoned up. Lots of realistic skirt colors and good hook seal the deal.

How about that new Ike Jig. I saw it somewhere, maybe TW. Think its made by Missile Baits. Might be worth checking out.

I like the baby advantage too but Just saw the green fish tackle itty bitty jig and it looks promising, nice paint job and a wired skirt. if the hook is big enough it might be the ticket.

I picked up a couple and they are compact for 3/8. Not sure what brand hook.

Hack attack are lead and have a heavier Guage hook.

Kira jig is tungsten with thin hook. Compared to my 3/8 seibert jigs, they are half the size. Let's me get good rate of fall, skippability, and allows me to downsize considerably without sacrificing casting distance.
