    Default Perch Jigs

    A breezy day (good for ventilation) and some inspiration by Dsmdave today sent me to my garage to make some perch jigs.

    I often use old sinkers that I either find or are donated to me by my friends. This one here can make about 20 perch jigs:

    Today I used two Do-It molds:

    And poured twenty 1/16 and 1/8 oz. jigs:

    This was the first time I have used the horsehead mold.

    Next came the paint:

    Like Dsmdave, I used powder paint for the jig bodies. For the eyes on the horsehead jigs I used the acrylic hobby paint. I dab it on with a finishing nail head.

    Then I had to attach the spinner blade to the horsehead jigs. That took more time than I would have liked. I also used stick-on eyes for the round jigs.

    The results -- twenty perch jigs:

    Now I just need to find the perch.

    Outstanding Mark!
    I was able to get the fly rod out late this afternoon and fish my local flow.
    Had 3 fish strike my bullet head, but I was spacing out and slow to react each time.

    Nice work mark. I have the same mold for the aspirin heads. What color is that green and red I'm loving those color on all of them.

    Y'know those lures look good enough to bite!
    And if they look good, they'll fish good.

    Nice looking lures. The perch and stripers will love them.
