LETS SEE THOSE JIG BOXES =)

Everyone seems to collect some jigs that work well for them.
Here is what I like to use, from Smelt to Lake Trout
What works for you?

I made a jig box for my son in law.

Summer of 2020 saw a storm that took a huge maple tree branch down in their front yard.

I grabbed a piece of it that I dried for several months. I taught him ice fishing 3 years ago now he looks forward to the cold as much as I do! LOL

Here's one I made out of cedar for one of my best friends. Also put in a few homemade tungsten jigs for him.

Fun idea to look at jig boxes. Nothing special from me but more than I ever use. Really I just need to sharpen my photo posting skills so I'll be ready to contribute fish porn whenever I start catching the buggers!  ;D

Those are first generation tip up lights, like the one you saw me use on Saginaw bay with you up to Augre, a couple years ago.

Starts getting scary when you have multiple jig boxes with over 200 in each..lol. always put my name and number on them with a " if found...beer reward" hopefully it will work if dropped

Hali's can be awesome at times, especially for perch.
I have been putting the dropper hook chain on a tungsten jig with some good results for panfish.  ;)
I use a small piece of plastic tube to hold in place.

Speaking of Halis, I've never used them much, but today it worked great for bluegills with a spike on the dropper hook. It was 29 fow so I wanted to put on something that would get down there fast. Turned out they loved it.

O man when the panfish bite is finnikyi find a hali or a johnson snare spoon is the ticket.....  They are pretty much the same except the snare spoot is a little more football shaped as opposed to the stick shape of the hali and the snare spoos has a slightly bigger sturdier hook which i like a lot ive always felt the hali hooks were a touch small for my type of fishing

I use both plastic boxes from screws with closed cell foam and Plano boxes with the same close cell foam.  I slice threw the foam about 1/2 way then insert the lure into it with the hooks up.  That way I can sort them by size and color.  For my jigging raps or body baits I use the same technique but they are inserted on an angle.  Hope this helps. 

Here is how I store my jigs and lures for perch






Here are how I store my lures for walleyes and pike
