Default Vertical Jigs

Hey everyone, I have had several people ask me about making and selling vertical jigs. I got one mold on the way that is 7 and 9oz. Its a Do-it flutter jig. As I have never used a vertical jig before any tips, tricks or comments would be helpful. As soon as I get the mold in I plan on pouring a few and figuring out what size split rings and hooks will work best. But if any one has any info on this subject any help would be appreciated. I am posting a picture of the mold just so y'all can see as well.

Did you get the SS eyes for the jig mold? That's a good weight size you purchased. The Owner split rings are very strong without getting too large in diameter.

Ocean Master- Yes I did get the SS eyelets for the mold and I'm thinking about getting the 4oz and 5oz mold as well. I will take a look at the split rings and see if I can bulk purchase them.

Sammy- I have every type of glow paint CS coatings makes coming in by next week lol

Brian, Jigs are a good seller if the price is decent. Glow bellies is the way to go, and the top three selling colors is blue, green, pink backs. You can find some good heavy duty split rings at several suppliers but the solid ring must be round, welded not stamped. You can also get kevlar cord in bulk for making your own assists if you desire. My jigging crew goes through about 100 jigs a season or more.

I would think it would be tough to make a profit competing w/those Cheap (~$5-$6/ea. & sometimes ~$3-$4/ea. on sale) Chinese Jigs I see on-line (although I realize some/most come w/Crappy Hooks & Crappy Hardware.

That's why I never bothered.....and just gave mine away to friends ....lead was free and enjoyed making the molds, that was my payment for services rendered(enjoyment and the challenge) ....still making some things with the lead and giving away

I prefer the kevlar corded assist hooks, never had one fail. If you need help testing give me a shout, AJ jigging is my favorite!

I have about 3,000 poured bodies in my garage. They catch the crap out of fish, but we couldn't make a living selling them unless we priced them like Shimano or Wiliamson. Plus that oil spill thing hit us right at take-off.

The bodies are the cheap part. Quality rings and hooks drive the cost way up. Bulk components from China are cheap, and perform that way.

I got some egg sinker molds and find that is the most economical part of pouring. Enjoyable too!
