Anyone use the Arnolds fairy jig?
« on: Nov 14, 2005, 01:49 PM »
I have looked around the site and dont see much mention of it. I have found this jig to out produce any jig I have used, Genz worm, genzbug, standard tear drops, spider ants, shrimpos, and many others. Does anyone else use these, and what success do you have. I think those two little metal flippers have alot to do with their effectiveness. If you listen close when you jig them on a calm day, or jig them in a 5 gal bucket they produce a clear tinny vibration.I have best results with red/gold size 10. Tip them with half a bee moth and jig them hard for the first 5 seconds, then just jiggle them easy. If you watch the fish they dont seem to hesitate when aproaching them like other jigs, they just inhale them and thats it.I would like to hear from anyone else who uses them. Thanks.

I haven't had your kind of success on them, Farmer Ted, but I do get some crappies on them right at dusk.

I've got a few in the box but they don't seem to produce any more than others.

I've got them in many colors. At times they are great, other times I
see no difference than my other jigs. I haven't caught many gills on
them, mostly perch. I always tip them with waxies or mousies.

I have never heard of them before.
They look neat, I bet they would be a good one for perch or whitefish. :)

The slab crappie on a near by lake like those jigs. The flutter action really brings em in!
There is nothing in the world I'd rather do than ice fish!

I love them for bluegill and crappie when the fish aren't real aggressive. I watch it on the Aqua-Vu... Sharp twitches will attract them. Then tiny little jumps, just enough to make the blades dance usually gets them to commit

I never heard of it, but I may have to give it a try.  After all, with a name like that, it better catch fish. :)
