I bought some bitsy bug jigs. Where do you throw them and when? Do you catch big bass on small jigs?

I will throw one in clear water when I’m not able to get them to eat my regular jig. But I always down size my trailer first then if that don’t work I try the smaller jig.

Ok. Why would you buy something and not know how, when, where to use it?

You, sir, are an addict. There is a three step program for you.

Make sure you bitsy bug jigs say Bitsy flip jigs or you will have a tough time getting a hookset, the flip jigs have bigger hooks and are very deadly from 1 foot to 12 foot. good luck

When I’m fishing with someone else, a lot of times I’ll throw a finesse jig while they’re throwing a full size flipping jig.

I like to use them in late winter/early spring. Throw them on the outside edges of cover coming off the bank. If you can find a rocky bank with some visible cover coming 5 yardor so off the bank has been best for me.

Bitsy Flipping Jig or a better jig - 1/4 oz Oldham Trailer Hitch Jig on both use a finesse type craw, there are many out there, Zooms Lil Critter Craw is a good choice.

I use them in late winter / early spring in re-emerging grass. Fish them slow in the cooler water temps. Most often there will not be the normal thump, your line / bait will be moving off.

Bitsy bug is absolutely one of my favorite baits to throw, especially Mid-Winter through very Early Spring. Agree with meP2too that I rarely get a thump and the bait generally just takes off. I use them a lot in deeper chunk rock, gravel and on bluff walls. Biggest fish this year on a bitsy jig was a 9 pounder.
