    What type of jigs do you recommend when fishing thick weeds?

    Best option is always experimenting. Just buy a bunch of cheap jigs and play with them. I know that sounds like a bad answer but I think it's the best advice. Make sure they have a strong eye/hook for pulling them out. Try different colors and weights/shapes.

      You'll need a jig of at least 1/2 oz. or more to punch through that stuff. I would tip it with a craw trailer. Even at that you will have a tough time bringing it in without a load of salad on it. Another option that I prefer is a Texas rigged plastic bait. They seem to come through better for me.

        You will also have a hard time bringing in a fish through the thick weeds.

          Weedless Jigs work fantastic

            Texas Rig for sure - no hook protruding and the jig will glide through weeds like a hot knife through butter.
