    Default Burbot and lake trout jigs?

    I sure hope these jigs will work for Lakers and Burbot.
    The smaller sizes for trout and landlocked salmon.
    Just curious what you guys think.
    The Minnow heads with wire keepers I made in 3/8,1/4,3/16,1/8,1/16,1/32and 1/48 oz
    The crappie jigs are the round ones and those I made in 1/16 and 1/32
    I have some lucky coworkers who will be receiving some of these for free as well as a forum friend or two.




    These ones are 1 oz. The squid heads have an action similiar to an airplane jig. I may have to add bucktail to a few of them.
    Basically smaller versions of some of my saltwater jigs.

    I really need to make a bunch more of these so I can practice more with my powder paint airbrush.
    I did some more reading online and I may have better luck with it using lower pressures so I need to try that.
    I may have to contact some more forum friends to gift some more jigs to if I make a bunch more of these.

    Thanks Dave! I will get some in the mail to ya when I get off the slope again. You might need to PM me your address again.
    I did just order another powder paint airbrush(don't tell my wife) and a manifold to hook it up to my compressor.
    That way I can do my base coat and 2 accent colors on one jig. I can't wait to see what I can create with that setup.

    watch the wire hooks on the regular jig heads, I've had lakers bend open the wire hooks on tube jigs in the past.
