I am wanting to make it a point to catch a fish on one this summer. What is your go-to?

green pumpkin, black/blue, and Cali 420 are the only colors I use.

get a color resembling the forage the fish are feeding on. craws, shad, or bluegill. keep it pretty basic and just KNOW they will bite it. 99% of jig fishing is confidence.

Ive been using V&M jigs, and have a few Santone jigs left. The santone jigs hook up and hold the fish better. better hook and angle I guess. Ive lost a few key fish the last year that I believe would have stayed pinned on the Santone Jigs. I want to order some more santone jigs but TW doesnt carry the color I need.

Black and blue with a black and blue crawfish trailer. There are a ton of good jigs out there and they will all catch fish but the next time I buy a few I will buy this. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/strike-king-denny-brauer-structure-jig It really seems to come through brush and moss great and still stands up much like a football jig. I like the skirt to have most of the blue on the bottom and I like the same with what ever trailer I pick. I use a Strike King Rage Craw a lot but also use several other similar trailers. If I had one weight to pick it would be 1/2 oz. If the brush or moss is thick or you're fishing deep on a windy day, you may want 3/4 oz. If fishing fairly shallow and the cover isn't real thick you may want to go with 3/8 oz.

Here is a good video which should also help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSdwTZQLj1Y About 4 minutes in Mark give some good tips on how to trim the skirt and weed guard.

Santone are the best football jigs IMO... for grass jigs I like the oldham eye max... the Santone football head in 3/4 oz Bullfrog color has been the best for me lately in Deep ETx

Green pumpkin or black/blue. Keep it simple. The jig has been good to me so far this year. Biggest fish have come from it to date.
