  • Whats your favorte color Black Rockfish jig?

    Well it wont be to long and I will start working on some jigs for next year. I am going to make some 4-6oz jigs and was wondering what your favorite color is for Black Rockfish. I know they are not too picky but some colors do seem to work better than others.

        A charter friend of mine bought 100 4oz rockfish jigs from me this year.
        He didn't want them to have any extras such as 3D eyes as he planned on losing most of them to the rocks and kelp.He said he lost 85 jigs the previous year. Mostly because clients do not listen.
        All he wanted was plain white.

          If the black rockfish are there they will eat anything..

            Straight silver, and if anything else, a slight blue to their back.

              Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

                  I like white but I would be just as concerned with getting the best quality needlepoint and size hooks than color, I like owner hooks. 4-6 is ounce is heavier than I would normally use for rockies, I prefer 1-2 ounce, smaller is always better if you can get it down.

                        For big old smart lake trout, White or light to dull green will out fish Chartreuse every time but for stupid rockfish it all works.

                          I haven't found black bass to be terribly picky. I prefer to use a salmon rod and hence tend to go with lighter jigs, basically 2-6 oz crippled herring or similar, though I've also take them on grub tails, diamond jigs, spoons, krocodiles and pretty much every thing I've thrown at them.

                          Summer before last this Gibbs accounted for several monster black bass (and a couple of lings) on one trip.

                          Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

                          If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

                            White/glow here...after tons of trial and error I keep going back to white. As a matter of fact I believe white works for everything for some reason...likely a contrast thing when viewed from below against the sky.

                              On a side note, where you all finding those hooks in the photo above? Rig them yourself or buying pretty made ones?
