No good fisher goes around without some basic black in the box. A black jig works well any time, any where and is specifically called for on dark days or muddy water. A minnow, a craw, a baby catfish, a large nymph, black just looks like something good to eat to a lot of fish a lot of the time. Crappie, bass, bluegills, shellcrackers, walleye, white bass, perch and trout all love a “marabou” jig. Available in 1/8th oz. (3.5g) #2 Mustad Aberdeen hook, 1/16th oz. (1.75g) #4 Mustad Aberdeen hook and 1/32nd oz. (.875g) #6 Mustad Aberdeen hook.
