I see the same thing over and over! It is the same thing that keeps people from catching fish. I’ve seen other fishermen throwing plastics and not catching fish when they should. It breaks my heart because I don’t want anyone to have a bad day on the water!
My guess is that they’re not using the appropriate weight for a jig head. Either they’re too heavy or too light, and usually too light. If you don’t have 1/8, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2oz jig heads in your arsenal then you are only hurting yourself. Don’t be scared to use a 1/2oz jig head to get to the bottom in 16ft of moving water! I know it looks weird threading a plastic onto it but I promise it works. You don’t want to be using a jig head that is too heavy in lightly moving water, either. It will decrease your chances of catching because it will negatively effect the presentation of the plastic.
Don’t be afraid to try something new! Experiment and experiment some more. In time you will know what jig head is the right size.
