I'd be curious to know how many jig makers make their hooks barbless. Let us know.


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Just the opposite.

On most of my personal jigs, I have switched to a hook with a bigger barb.

No. If you're not doing catch and release, what would be the benefit?

NO DOUBT........


Jigging; it's faster than chasing a minner in a bucket!

No sir, mine stay open... But if I were fishing water that required it, I would not have a problem with it.
