This is what I am looking for! Preferably with some good eyes on em...can anyone steer me in the right direction? Time to stock up for Spring!

Naggler, you are right about time to stock up. I can't help you but the thing to watch for I am seeing a lot of them with the eyes out of line and also the head out of line with hook. the weigh to high on the eye and the jigs may not run point up.

Barlows you can get painted jigs along with Lurepartsonline. Lot of tiers on other sites are going to this guy attached for eyes. From china takes about 2 weeks. "Year of the goat" so the boys over there are on time off for there opening of year celebration.

Looked at a ton of websites...none of which had the painted minnow heads. Proangler had some unpainted ones that come with eyes you can adhere on, but I liked Crazy Anglers jigheads the best. Just cant find anywhere on their website where to buy the 3D eyes! Looked under every tab. Really liked the look of the HD Walleye, Pro Walleye, and Mean Minner heads...wandering if any of you know what size eyes to order and where to get them from? Thanks!

Try Here for 4mm eye's. That fits the 1/16oz & 1/8oz walleye best, IMHO. Then get you some powder from CA and an alcohol burner and paint them yourself.

Call em and tell em what you want. Just cause they ain't listed doesn't mean they don't carry um...Unless it's changed all his 3d eyes are made in America.

A good place to get eyes if you don't find local is, fly Tyers dungeon. They are up North and it is winter time.

Beauties! Do you powder paint those or did you paint em with nail polish? Also, what size eyes and where did you snag em from? I emailed and pm'd crazy angler asking about em but havent heard back yet. Their jigheads look great though.
