    I could use a few of these.

    I got this picture from a VA. crappie forum. They use these for crappie/ pan fish. I don't have any that small. They would be great for crappie and bluegill.Click image for larger version.

    I wonder if some of the jigs cut from a sabiki rig, and used individually, would be too small ?

    Thanks Kerf, that is a great idea. Never thought of that.

    We used to tie our own flies in college for bluegill and crappie. Lots of wolly worms and streamers. I would like to get into that again. The jigs pictured would be easy to tie and its fun catching fish on your own creations.

    I don't have time to tie my own. I'm always fishing.

    Andy, any indication of the weight on those jigs? I would be glad to make a few for you.

    I spent some time the other day painting up some shad darts, and hope to get them tied over the weekend.

    I don't know the weights on my little darts and jigs. I will ask on the other site and let you know. Thanks!

    It is hard to tell from that picture but most probably those in the picture are 1/16 oz. or maybe 1/32 oz., certainly not 1/8 oz.

    The small darts you got from me are supposed to be 1/16 oz. per the mold, and depending on the style, some are but some of the molds pour a little heavier than that.

    Jim, looks like they are 1/32.

    No doubt they will work, the only problem is they are not weighted but a split shot up the line would solve that. Even better would be to tie one of them in tandem either above or below a small jig.

    Would work good under under a bobber. A split shot if I ever have to get deep. Deep for me would be no more then 10 feet.

    Those Sabiki's will work with a fly rod. I've cut them off & used them with mine, but agree with Jerry, in combination with a jig they should work great.

    Andy, I'll make you some of those jigs, I think I have some already molded in 1/32. Do you have a preference for color?

    issue is with sabiki hooks though, they don't have eyes on them. The few that I currently own are barely snelled on. I'd rather get a few small jig heads and tie them myself.

    Akhan, there are several brands of sabiki rigs that I've seen. I haven't tried but one, and have not had an issue with them. It appears they use a flat eye hook, snell it, and mold a plastic over the snell. As I said, I've used them as flies with a fly rod, and just leave the leader attached, tie a quick loop knot & attach to my fly tippet via loop to loop. Works fine for panfish.

    Not everyone ties, but I agree, I rather tie my own too. Actually, Jerry Norris & I both have been tying a long time & we both sell jigs, so fortunately for us, not everyone wants to tie!

    I've never paid much attention to how the Sabiki rigs were constructed but always thought that they would catch fish.

    I bet we could figure a way to rig them. Might be something for me to try. No fishing today. It is my wife's birthday and I am taking her to the casino to play.

    I've been a tractor trailer driver for the last 25 years. In part of that time when I lived in MD I tied flies & jigs & sold them. Never made enough with that business to make a living, but enough to keep it going & support my fishing habits. My driving job was a full time occupation, and tying was also full time, sometimes.

    I just started selling some again, but I tie & make lures more because I enjoy doing it than for money. Making some money certainly helps. I'm getting ready to go back to driving, because I have to. I hope to "retire" at the end of this year, but that's yet to be decided.

    I am fortunate enough to be retired. I enjoy making and tying lures but I would never be able to produce enough to do anything other than buy more hooks and supplies. But there again, that is really all I need.

    Hey Andy. I have been reading your posts for a while now. Have you ever tried leland lures. They make a little shad dart jig along with several types of bug jigs. I love them for all types of panfish. They catch everything that swims. Perch, crappie, trout, smallies, bluegill, even the occasional small walleye will go after these things.
