While we have some Jig guys in here, I was curious if anyone can reccomend some jigs for me to buy. I have a VERY small collection (like 3 jigs). Can anyone recommend some that I should get and what size to look for? i always buy the wrong sizes online lol

I would like ones that are good for Trout and some good for Bass.

Also would like to find something that Pike like to munch on.

Also was curious about getting ones that are good to catch smelt.

Knowing what size to get is important cause that something i dont know and always make mistakes on.

The Hali is a perch killer, tie a ice fly 12" above the spoon. Big perch ignore the spoon and hit the fly.  Bait the Hali with spikes, no bait on the fly. Black body with a red tail is my go to fly. Found a Hali knock off chain/hook and use it on a small  #2 Pimple with good sucess. Another alternative is a No Knot Fas Snap, use mono and tie your own dropper rig.

Great tip! I will try it for sure! :tipup:

Anyone have color preferences for Hali? I was thinking of going the classic silver.

http://www.nilsmaster.com/web2008_010.htm

I found a place that has some in stock, no gold though or id go for the gold so to say.

Going to get a 25mm 35mm and 50mm. I figure the smaller size is good for the small fish that i can try to jig up to catch bigger fish on my traps and the 35/50 can do well to snag some larger fish when im bored.

I have many Hali Jigs in the tackle box and I find that the red and silver appear to be the best

i wish they had more options. I want the silver/red combo but they dont have it. alot of glow colors but i dont want the glow ones. Have you tried the copper/flouro red? i think that one is a nice looking color.

You could try painting some red on your silver hook...I have around 20 Hali Jigs in the tackle box in a variety colors because some days it takes changing them out many times until they start biting....Yes I have copper/flouro red also....

I hear ya....I buy a few each year...Keep an eye out on eBay for them, one time I bought 4 and with delivery they cost me $8.00....Also make sure you have some spare hooks (with the chain) because the pike sometimes give them a strike....

try the shucks lures and kodiak perpetual motion jigs too. they are alot cheaper than the halis and are deadly on everything from trout to whitefish to smelts.

 Love the Hali jigs but hate the chains that come with them. I replaced the chains with 2" mono sting'r hooks from Northland.
