yo usir need to go back and take your basic math again!!! 40,000 jigs a year means he has to tie atleast 110 a day all year...so unless your days are shorter than everyone elses tying one every 30 sec makes a whole lot more than 40,000 a year


i dont want to start a pissing match here but if you have never tied jigs before then 110 dosent sound like very many but until you sit down and tie them you wont understand, you guys say that he does this all afterschool and curtis [being the responsable person he comes off as] wouldnt let conner do jigs before homework. yall said he is thirteen so he is in middle school. that means probly an hour of homework [thats how it was for me usally] he gets home at say 3 in the afternoon, he chills out from a day at school for an hour, then does homework, by now it is 5 pm,[an hour of chilling and an hour of homework]he eats dinner so it is6 pm, and lets say his bed time is 10 pm. so he has 4 hours to tie 110 lures. like i said ealier if you havent tied jigs then 110 doesnt seem like very many but trust me it cant be done in 4 hours. not to mention the fact that you get sick of doing it after an hour ortwo and eventually you dont even want to do it anymore. so logically no i dont think i need to redo my math.


guess weekends dont count huh?

seems like a little jealousy there...remember the more you pump out the more money you make...if i could turn out a product like him i would work every second i could to get out as many as i could so i can make as much money as i can...then when you have enough made that when one of your distributors is starting to run low then all you have to do is ship him some that are already made, hmmmm need math and econ class again

I can assure you Ben is not jealous he was just sharing his opinion as a jig maker..



The first is a DingALing made by the man..

The 2 that look alike are one of my favorite jigs made...Got them from Clinton

The football head is one Ben made..It use to be a brown color on the head with a orange dot on back and owner hook..It caught the first Pompano of the year of Pensacola Pier..

Dont have a coon dog because the boneheads ate them all while pomp fishing..

As for Spanish and boneheads there is only one jig to use ever but that is another topic..

Sorry for the crappy picture

If you want some you could PM any of the guys who make them..Hot Spots has the best selection of all around jigs and GB has the best selection of Coon Dogs

i dont need to see him tie them, i know from watching people that have tied them for 20 plus years that you cant tie that many in that amount of time...now lets turn this around how jigs have you wrapped in your lifetime mr. fisheye? i would betthat you wouldnt know were to start ifi handed you a vise,bobbin, thread,nylon, and jig head and say you have 4 hours to do 110 of these, it isnt as easy as it sounds until you sit down and do it

and i do respect connor, his lures look good and as a fellow jig maker i understand all the steps and processes and the time it takes to do it, but im sure he is the same way i am, i dont want people going aroundtelling peoplehow many lures i can can make and how fast i can do them...people do that and it puts you on a pedestalthat you know you do not reach. and it puts you out as better than what you are

i never said i could do better or that there was no way he could tie it...your the one who popped off about he would have to tie one every 30 seconds, and there is no way he can do 110 a day...you could know the best jig person around...but everyone works differantly...so before you going running your mouth about someone you know nothing about know a few things about them first...have proof to back your statements up

Dylan (2/11/2010)All great jigs...Why dont yall post pictures of your favorite ones? Ill take a few after dinner..So who makes the best ling jigs? I think I will throw a DingALing and Big Bend(usually throw that anyway) this year..Hopefully the legend will weigh in his opinion..I think most of you know who Im talking about..I dont think this thread is about who makes "the best" but what YOUR favorite is..


No Dylan, I'm pretty sure I made this thread to find out who makes the best jigs.

There is no "best jig" its your favorite or the one you have must confidence in...There cant be a best because everyone has a diff opinion..If you wanted to know the opinions of best jigs you should of done a poll

Well there it is again,another train wreck of a tread! Personally I'm not much of a pompano fisherman(can't seem to make it past the bar on the beach)and have only caught them purely by accident but I do know a thing or 2 about lures. I own several Connor pompano jigs,WillieJoe Cobia jigs,some made by the Legend Frank Helton,the "Man" as Dylan put it and 1 made by Smart Dave(I miss that kid)and they are all well thought out. I've only seen Bens jigs here on the forum but they do look good but if ya can't throw one or present it to a fish in order to provoke a strike it doesn't matter who made it,what it looks like or crap like that. Presentation is everything no matter what your fishing for.
