When they are hungry , color doesn't matter. But I prefer the blue back and white belly.

Have had excellent results with Green back/white and anything that shiny. Like Lobsterman said, it doesn't matter when they are hungry..BBob

The good old diamond jig works great as well, just be sure to change out the hook on it for larger jacks.

Same here. However, I do like daimond jigs a lot. Nice thing about them is, they can take a beating but there's no paint to chip off so you can use them until you lose them.If I use a daimond jig for ajs though I like to take the treble hook and replace it with an assist hook on top.

6-8 oz. usually will work both shallow and fairly deep. It also depends on the style of jig as some descend quicker than others, but regardless 6-8oz. jigs are what I primarily keep on hand.

I use the 5 and 7 oz butterfly jigs the most but sometimes it takes bigger to get down because of current.
