I make the only highest quality hand-tied custom crappie Jigs here in Texas just North of Houston, Texas using only #4 Matzuo sickle hooks because we feel they catch more fish.
I am a single species fisherman by choice and only fish for crappie because I feel it is more rewarding, and the sport of catching crappie on a hand-tied crappie jig is beyond description.
My crappie jigs catch crappie all over the United States of America. I do this as my hobby but have developed a passion for crappie fishing with jigs and every jig I offer for sale has been tested thoroughly to consistently catch crappie and stand up to the abuse we fishermen put our lures through. If it doesn't catch crappie consistently it goes in the trash as a failed experiment. I throw away more jigs each year than most avid crappie fishermen buy and use in a year, and the rest I guarantee will catch crappie most anytime of the year, although I have my favorites to use during certain weather conditions.
I've sold my crappie jigs from the east coast to the west coast and all points in between and have received a lot of special requests and suggestions that have helped me fine tune my jigs and colors. We actually sell as many jigs out of state as we do locally here in Texas.
My Crappie Jigs are the best quality jigs you will find anywhere because I will not make anything less. If your jig you bought from me comes apart due to bad materials or workmanship send me a picture of the jig and I will replace it at no cost to you. In some cases you may not have the damaged jig such as if the hook eye breaks and I trust you to be honest with me.
If you want to catch more and bigger crappie, you need to try my hand-tied custom crappie jigs. No tackle box is complete without some Custom Crappie Jigs. I am an avid crappie fisherman and have a perspective on what works and what doesn't. We design custom crappie jigs to fit crappie fishing situations on any body of water or weather conditions. That's why we take into consideration the color combinations of the lures and what color will accommodate which type of water you are fishing in.
We fish night and day, in dark water, clear water and all possible conditions. We fish on cloudy days and sunny days. We can make your hand-tied crappie jigs for all these situations.
Some examples are:
(1) Sunny days use - Pink and whites (Pink Panther/YPY/Fire-n-Ice/Jig 26, etc.)
(2) Cloudy days use - Dark purple and black (Texas Avocado/Ultimate Jig/PPP, etc)
(3) In clear water use bright colors
(4) In stained water use dark color combination jigs
(5) During cold weather and cold fronts use (Electric Chicken and Pink Panther, etc.)
Catching a fish on a hand-tied crappie jig makes crappie fishing more enjoyable and more satisfying.Once you have caught crappie on a hand-tied jig you may never buy minnows again. I haven't used minnows in years, and many of my die hard crappie fishing friends agree. We catch more crappie on jigs than most people doon minnows anyway, so it makes sense to just fish with jigs.
Food for thought: When a crappie bites your minnow you have to reel it up and check the bait and put it back which is time out of the "bite zone" or productive waters. On a jig you set the hook and have a fish on or leave it in the "bite zone" for another, so you are actually spending more time in the productive water still fishing instead of baiting hooks.
I have taken my hobby of making custom crappie jigs and expanded it from coast to coast in an effort to help fellow fishermen enjoy crappie fishing all over, not just Texas, with my hand-tied crappie jigs. These custom crappie jigs will have you catching more and bigger crappie in no time, not to mention saving the expense of minnows and the hassle of getting bait before you fish. When you compare my jigs to my competition, the first thing you will notice is our hand-tied crappie jigs have a fuller body because we use chenille all the way back to the first bend in the sickle hook and our competition only ties the chenille about 1/2" from the head making a smaller offering to the crappie. We really believe that the way we design ours (to give a larger bait presentation) is why we catch bigger fish. We do use more materials this way but it simply works (period).
It has been well-established for years that to catch larger bass, you use larger baits. Crappie are no different. Sometimes they are looking a small bite and sometimes they are looking for a larger bite. The jigs we make will catch all sizes of crappie, but they do seem to attract the larger crappie. It has also been known to catch all species of fish such as black bass, catfish, carp, perch and all fresh water fish.
