Frequently Asked Questions

  •  How do I make a custom order?  You can simply call, email, or text me what you would like.  We will work together and determine the perfect jigs for your fishing style.  After the jigs are completed and ready to be shipped, I will send an invoice link to your email.  You will then be able to make a secured payment of your choice through the website.  You will also receive tracking updates regarding your shipment.   
  • How long does it take to make a custom order?  I keep a lot of different styles of hooks and supplies in stock.  Therefore, I am usually able to make custom orders and have them ready for shipment within a couple of days.  I can give an estimate of completion once we decide on exactly what you want.  
  • Can you make jigs without wire keepers?  I can absolutely make jigs without wire keepers.  Some people who affix their baits with super-glue or use the jigs for fly tying, prefer no keepers on the jigs.  
  • What makes your jigs different from other competitors?  I use a lead-free alloy that is safe and environmentally friendly.  This alloy is very expensive compared to lead.  It is also a little lighter which I think is beneficial in a finesse presentation.  We have one of the largest variations of jigs in stock that are ready to be shipped.  I file the sprues off of the top of the jigs so there is a smooth appearance.  After the jigs are powder painted, they are cured in an oven for a very durable finish.  The eyes of the hooks are cleared of paint.  All of the jigs are quality checked several times throughout this process.  
  • Do you offer discounts for bulk orders or unpainted jigs?  I will pass the savings on to you if there is any way that I can make the jigs more efficiently.  I don't currently have a standard base price on bulk orders or unpainted jigs.  I work with each customer on a case by case basis so we can decide on an agreeable price together.  I am never offended by anyone asking for a discount.  
  • Do you make jigs in other colors?  Yes, I have several colors available to paint the jigs.  I keep the most popular colors in stock, but if there is another color that you would like then please let me know.  Here is a list of some of the colors that I currently have that may not be listed: blue, pearl, yellow chartreuse, watermelon with red flake, brown, root beer, black with blue flake, white, and junebug.   
  • Why are your jigs listed as the corresponding lead-head size even though they are lighter?  Most people are familiar with the sizes of the corresponding lead-head jigs.  I didn't want to confuse customers by having odd weights that aren't commonly used in the fishing industry.                                                                                                                           Our 1/16 size lead-free jig will look very similar in appearance to a 1/16 oz. lead jig; however, it will be approximately 20% lighter.  As an example, our 1/16 size is very close to 1/20 oz. actual weight.  This is beneficial in a finesse jig because you have more surface area in a lighter jig.  There are slight variances with the alloy, paints, and hooks which makes it very difficult to give exact weights as well.                                                                                                                                                                                  The only exception is with our 1/32 size jig which is very close to an actual 1/32 oz. size.  This is due to the mold making process of the 1/32 jig.  Please see product description for further details.                                                                                                                                                              I have no problems mixing different sizes of jigs so you can experiment with which variations are best for your fishing conditions.  
  • Can you make different colors of skirted jigs?  Yes I have several variations of skirt tabs in stock that are not listed.  I really enjoy working with customers to invent new creations!
  • Can you develop a specific style of jig that you don't have on the website?  I greatly appreciate all suggestions.  Most of the variations that I currently have available are due to customers' suggestions.  It takes a lot of time to develop and produce a completely different style of jig; however, I will try to find a way to make it work in the future if there is enough of a demand.  
  • What hooks do you use?  The hooks are listed in the product descriptions of each variation.  Most of the hooks I use are American made Eagle-Claw brand in the 570 and 500 series.  I prefer these hooks because they are corrosion resistant and the light-wire allows for exceptional penetration on a finesse hook-set.   Some of my molds will accommodate different brands of hooks if you have a specific request. 
  •  Are light wire hooks more prone to break or do you lose more fish with them?  The light-wire hooks are made to flex instead of break.  Most people use light fishing line when finesse fishing.  The flex in the hook will help prevent line breakage.  You can often free a jig that is snagged due to the flex.  Occasionally a hook may break if it is pulled with strong force against a snag or if it is bent back into place several times.  Most hook failures occur because many fisherman will pre-rig and keep salted plastics on a jig.  This will cause corrosion over time and significantly weaken the hook.
