I prefer 1/4oz or 1/16oz plain lead jighead. I have always had more luck with those, if I run out I use a red jighead.

Default Jig Head Colorr

I make them in all colors. I really don't think that head color is that important; rate of fall, tail/skirt color and material are. JMHO C2

We have a saying in Louisiana - "If it ain't chartreuse, it ain't no use!"

Strike King redfish magic 1/4 ounce red or white. I like these because Strike King uses Mustad ultra point hooks on them.

I prefer either slayer predators xxx or mission fishin jig heads in a 1/16-1/8oz colors I don't feel make a big difference I use white, chartreuse, unpainted and black. They all work fine however what you put in that jig head is what matters.
