Do bladed jig heads get more bites?
by Tim Huffman
Plain jig heads or bladed jig heads – what’s your preference?
Mr. Crappie, Wally Marshall, says, “For 25 years I’ve used a blade for crappie. I fish a lot of murky water and the blade vibration gives more bites even when vertical jigging. It helps me catch a lot more fish.”
Marshall says his preference is the Road Runner Pro Series with the gold blade because “it produces fish.” He says the 1/8 ounce works best for vertical jigging because it gives him better contact with the cover. But he sizes down to 1/16 ounce when he’s casting because he prefers the slower fall.
More on this and other great tips available in the book “Limiting Out for Crappie.”
