This new jig head specially-designed to hold attractant niblets is taking the crappie fishing world by storm.
There is a new jig head making waves in the crappie fishing world. It is called the Eye Hole Jig by Gill Reaper Lures. The most unique feature about the Eye Hole Jig is the hollow eye space which is the perfect size to hold a crappie niblet scent attractant. Gill Reaper Lures co-owner Blake Philips said,
“We sold our first ones in August (2019) and it’s insane what they’re doing. We can hardly keep up with the orders.”
The new catch on the Eye Hole Jig is just that – the eye hole. They’ve created a patent-pending mold that produces a hollow eye hole which is the perfect size to insert a Berkley Gulp niblet or Crappie Bites or most of the other crappie attractants on the market.
Anglers can change the color profile of each Eye Hole Jig by selecting different colors of attractants placed in the eye hole. You can push a Gulp niblet in there and it will stay there forever,” said Gill Reaper co-owner Blake Philips.
“You can push a Gulp niblet in the eye hole and it will stay there forever,” said Philips. “When you put niblets on the hook they’ll usually wash off in just a few casts but they’ll stay in our eye hole jig a long time, keeping that scent in the water. Some of the pros using the Eye Hole Jigs say they could watch on Live Scope and actually see crappie bypass other jigs to hand pick our jigs.”
The Eye Hole Jig comes with or without underspin, depending upon the size. They retail for $4.50 for a 3-pack of 1/16th ounce heads.
“We use up to five coats of paint with black nickel sickle hooks,” said Philips. “I like the black nickel because they won’t rust.”
