Choosing the right ice fishing jig can have a huge impact on your catch for the day.

How many times have you sat there and watched your friend pull in fish after fish while you struggled to get even a nibble?

In many cases it’s the jig that makes the difference.

Here are some quick tips on choosing the right ice fishing jigs:

  1. Always start with a small jig. Ice fishing is all about finesse. Smaller jigs are much less intimidating and tend to lead to more bites than larger jigs. If there’s fish around go with a small jig. If you need flash and fury to attract fish to the area then a larger jig might be better.
  2. Switch jig colors often. If you graph fish swimming up to your jig and not biting it, first try switching bait. Maybe go with a spike vs a waxworm. If that doesn’t do the trick try adding some wiggle with a plastic tail on the jig or switch to a different color jig.
  3. Go with titanium jigs. When fishing with teeny tiny jigs it can be a real pain to get them down to the bottom, especially in deep water with the wind blowing your line around. Titanium jigs are heavier and sink faster.

Titanium, silver and boron are great choices for making the right type of jigs for fishing in ice. If you have ever used a fishing vest or a hat and wondered what the heck it was, then you have a clear idea of what jig is for.

You would use it when you wanted to keep warm or at the very least you were going to put ice in it to keep your hands warm too.

The name Tungsten has been around for some time now. This means that it is a highly reactive metal that has a high strength to weight ratio. It can also be worked to give a shiny surface.

The most common form of this metal is a very large diameter stainless steel or titanium rod which would be coated with chrome. These types of fishing jigs are designed for all sizes and lengths of fish in lakes and ponds. They come in several sizes, which means that no matter how big or small your fishing trip is, you will always have one to use.

These smaller jigs are also commonly known as mini fishing vests or small jigs. Smaller sizes are often made out of stainless steel or Titanium with a thin coating of silicone in between the stainless steel to make it flexible and durable. They are light weighted and will stay afloat in water even with smaller fish.

The next type of jig, which is used for fishing is called the Glow Jigs. These small size fishing jigs come in a variety of colors and designs, which makes them unique in style.

These Glow Jigs is made out of the same materials that go into making the larger jigs. They are very lightweight and will not hold any water. If they do not hold water then they will float in the water. They can last for several years if properly cared for.

These small jigs are perfect for fishing in lakes and ponds and rivers, which are located far away from civilization. They are easily portable and come in an assortment of colors.

The last type of jig that I want to mention are the titanium fishing jigs. These little jigs can be used for fishing deep holes where you can be sure that the fish are in a remote area.

This is especially true if the lake or pond is so deep that the fish cannot be found by sonar. These fishing jigs are made out of the same materials as the other jigs mentioned above and are used to get to the bottom of the hole to find the fish. Some models have a hook at the bottom to help with the fishing.

The different kinds of Ice Fishing jigs are great for getting in the water and fishing with the family. Many people use them in conjunction with their fishing boats when fishing in ponds and lakes. They are a fun and easy way to enjoy the outdoors while enjoying the great outdoors.

These jigs are available in a variety of different shapes and sizes and colors. They can be used to catch just about any type of fish for any size of boat.

Ice fishing is not as difficult as some people make it out to be. All you need is a couple of fishing rods and some patience.

Ice fishing is a lot of fun and can be a lot of a challenge for those who have never tried this type of fishing. If you ever have a chance to visit a lake or pond then you should definitely take advantage of ice fishing as the next best thing to catching a few fish.
