Marabou/Crappie Jig Madness

Post By: bharper      Posted: 11/20/2020 7:53:36 PM     Points: 262    
Action packed day on the River fishing with my friend Chet. We combined for over 100 Trout today with over 70 of them on 1/8-1/4 ounce Jigs! Chet ended up with a few more fish. With the winds being 5 mph or less it made for ideal conditions throwing jigs. Black Jigs were the best producer with some good ones being caught on Brown/Orange Here’s my best Browns and Bow.

You guys are KILLING IT! Nice fish, and way to go once again.
(I still want to fish with you sometime!) 😁

I stumbled onto the brown and orange jig phenom a few years ago. I had some in my tackle that I had used for rock bass along the coast of SE Alaska. I was fishing the lower Gunnison and caught a couple of fish that were puking up small crawdads and the jigs were the closest thing I had with me at the time. I started nailing the browns with them and have been using them ever since. Like you, I am now tying my own, but I apparently do not have the same skill level as you guys. I have never caught as many in a day as you report. I could probably benefit greatly from watching you fish for an hour or two. I am continually inspired by your success - keep it up.

Ski - Thx! Anytime! I usually go over to the front range two times a year (Spring/Summer)! I have an extra room if you ever want to fish over here between Spring and Fall? 🎣🤙🍻

Wrmdunker - We don’t always catch big numbers but usually get some decent sized fish! Give me an advanced notice if you want to fish the Gunny/Colorado sometime? The photo below has some of the 3/16 oz Marabou Jigs I tied. The black jig on the far left is what caught most of these fish! If you look in the Rainbows mouth above in the pic you’ll see it.🎣👍

SirGreg - Thx! They’re definitely one of the most effective and easier to deal with lures when spin fishing for Trout! 🎣🍻👊

Thanks for the offer b, I’ll keep it in mind for the spring of 2021.
Maybe by then this 💩 will be more manageable!
