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

I use 1/8 and 1/4 oz jigs 95 % of the time unless I'm fishing in deeper water 15+ feet. I like the small profile, and I also believe that jigs that small have a much different action as they slowly fall in the water column. Also when dragged on the bottom, they have a tendency to float more thus enticing fish strikes. No need for me to use heavy jigs. The trailer will add the weight needed for casting.
I usually downsize when the bass aren't biting that good. There is always the choice of finesse jigs in the 1/4 oz to 3/8 oz range also. http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Pepper_C ... PMCRO.html
Thanks for the epiphany captain obvious
I use 1/8 jig head and small paddle tails with a swimming presentation when I'm not getting bit on the bigger baits. The difference in catch rate can be transformative some times. I rarely throw an 1/8 oz traditional bass jig and instead opt for ned rig if I'm fishing a jig on the bottom and want to downsize.
I use lighter jigs up to 1\4 when fishing in cold water below 60*. The slow fall of the small jigs is important especially when water is below 50*. Light slow falling jigs are also great for the pressured NJ bass I fish. I love fishing 1\16-1\8 hair jigs in Dec-Mar and 1\4 oz jigs though the spring and again in the fall. This month I've been hammering bass on a homemade 3\16 oz finesse jig with a bucktail undercoat and small rabbit zonker strips to act as a very natural trailer. Throw the light weights, good luck.
