Fiskas Balance Jig
« on: December 05, 2017, 08:49:28 AM »
Anyone used the Fiskas balance jig; the one with a hook on both sides? I bought a couple after being advised the perch in a lake I like were loaded with blue gill fry. Testing to follow.... ;)

What prompted you to pick this particular jig?


I can think of more realistic gill fry imitators. Not meaning the.color, but the shape and the way it will hang.

For one I'm always to open trying new jigs; despite owning a silly no. and variety already. Also I noticed they were listed in the top 10 pan fish category in the In Fisherman Ice Fishing mag. I can't post pics right now but the ones I bought hangs horizontally with a hook at both ends similar to a Jigging Rap but much smaller.

That's an evil looking little jig.

 Interesting little jig, hang different baits on each hook to see what they like that day. Gulp minnie vs. real minnie - waxie vs. mousie vs. spike.

 I've also seen better shaped jig imitations of blue gill fry. Northland Forage Fry maybe hard to tell from the picture if that's the one.  I used to have one or two about the size of a penny with a little bucktail tail on them.
