Flashy Jigs For White Bass

This jig style is one of the simplest that I can tie.  The jigs pictured below have an appearance similar to the spider jigs used for black bass fishing.  Their skirt material is plastic, rather than silicone, and very shiny.  These should be fished rather quickly with rapid twitches near the water's surface for schooling white bass.

  • Round head jigs in 1/16 and 1/8-ounce sizes with #4 sickle and #2 Aberdeen hooks, respectively
  • Rosey's Powder Paint - silver sand metallic
  • Rosey's Powder Paint Topcoat (Clear Coat High Gloss 100%) and red glitter mixture
  • UTC Ultra Thread (210 denier) - red
  • Icicles (18 inch) trimmed to size - silver
