Probably 100-150.
I have ordered a few kits from Custon jigs and spins and always end up with a few jigs I intend to use but often times don't get around too cause the old faithfulls work so well. 
Had to order some more pink with white body ratsos this year as my fiancee has broken off twice on 20+" rainbows and now swears by that jig in that size. Going to put them in her stocking this year.

Never really counted 'em, easily couple hundred. Never have enough when I can't get 'em to bite though :-\
How many times do I gotta go through holes before I watch where I'm going? I am an amateur fisherman, but an all star minnow drowner!

Probably a couple thousand most jig head and plastics that I bought for ky lake crappies but drag them along you never know when ur going to need em. Prob 500 or so ice jigs and just told wife I need to order some to start the boys their own box. Wonder if they'll mind if I give them some of the lightly rusted ones lol

I just cast and painted approx 225 jigs from 1/64 to 3/16 ounce w hook sizes from 14 to 6. Gonna try diff types of designs and colors to see what the fish might bite on (when we get ice). No ice and deer season over leaves alot of idle time I'd rather b doing something creative than sitting in front of the idiot box, not much on worth watching. To that I have about  30 diff types of commercial jigs. Can't never have enough variety. Was on a lake last season and the only person catching any fish was an Amish fella using a rainbow colored jig. Hadn't seen one in that color before, and nothing I had provoked a bite the way that bait did.

are you sure it was the bait color? To many factors to figure in to prove that...his location was different he mighta been jigglin different or the lack there of..depth? Bait? The way he baited? Line? ...but for this thread it was definitely the color...you need more jigs  ;D

Ive got around 60-65 jigs/spoons now and Im probably good to go till I lose a few.

Im still figuring out which ones work at which times, so my box not fully set in stone as to what I want/need yet. I may give away some bad apples as I progress, and then buy better replacements.

About 75 jigs but 500+ flies, most of which I don't even use.

I buy about 25 jigs every year ,I have icefished for around 50 years so I have some that the paint has come off and I have some new. I have sent some to a Iceshanty poster to paint them for me. Just a guess I have around 1250 give or take 10 or 20. I always buy two of the same color.   Jerry
