I'm looking for some stand ip type jig heads, the ones that are more
rounded like the rocker style that owner makes.

I've been using the Fin-Tech Knuckleball and TitleSHot jigs with great
success for the past year and a half. They're quality made and the hooks
are sharp. I've also found that the finish appears to be baked on as it
doesn't chip off nearly as easily as other brands of jigs.

It might help if I gave you the link to their site. Tell them Steve Huber
sent you.

I haven't rigged a T-rig for casting use in 2 years. The title shot has
completely replaced the slip sinker and hook, except for flipping
applications.

I don't lose them. Two to a pack is fine, they'll last quite a while with
the head design. They come through rocks, weeds and wood quite nicely.

What weights/sizes do you use for particular applications Steve & Rich?

The absolute best thing about them is that they make soft plastics --
especially heavily salted plastics that tend to shred to uselessness on
one fish -- last much, much longer. A regular T-rigged Ozmo for
instance, is typically a one or two fish bait. On the Title Shot head,
it's rare to get fewer than 4 or 5 fish on the dame bait, and I've gone
upwards of a dozen with a little creative re-rigging. But to go through
a whole weekend at Champlain with the same head tied on and only use 4
or 5 Ozmos all weekend is what I've come to expect with the Title Shot.
With a regular T-rig, it would've been a few hooks and sinkers, and 3 or
4 dozen Oz's.

I would say I use the 3/16 and 1/4 oz sizes most, fishing weed edges
with 10 or 12 pound fluoro. Typically with a 5" Ozmo. Less often with a
6" paddle tail style worm. (Producto ********) Those are about the only
two baits I fish in typical T-rig fashion any more. If I fished other
stuff, I wouldn't hesitate to put it on the same head though. I know a
lot of guys though, who fish tubes on these heads as well. I'm not much
of a tube fisherman, so I couldn't tell you how well it works.

I'm still not 100% married to it for flipping in the 1/2 oz and 3/4 oz
sizes though. I think the mass of the head is too close to the point of
the hook with the bigger heads. I've missed or dropped a few fish with
the heavy heads on the big stick, and that's a few too many for my
taste. I use it, and I'll likely be swayed to use it more in the future,
as lead sinkers will be outlawed in my favorite fishing waters soon, but
not lead jig heads. Dave Wolak says that opening the hook just a nudge
eliminates the problem that I've noted, so I'll be sure to give that a
try once flippin season really comes into its own on Champlain. Oh,
wait. That's next trip. Hot damn!

what flavors of the Vibrato do you like on Champlain, similar to your
Ozmo preferences (anything as long as its green pumpkin), or more in
line with drop shot colors (motor oil seemed to be your color of choice
a few weeks back)?

"I would answer that with a resounding yes. They like Green pumpkin when
the water is cold. When it's hot, they prefer green pumpkin. And in
between, green pumpkin is particularly productive."

Default Tackle help (red)


It's an alternative to the OZ, so I don't want it in the same color I'm
pitching them with that. My first choice in worm color is black g****,
although I do have a bag of motor oil in my bag, too. My color choices
are honed from 40-plus years of fishing soft plastics, and amount to this.

Creatures -- Green Pumpkin followed by Black. Black neon (BK with red
flk is OK, so is blk with grn flk -- as long as it's mostly black) (same
applies to lizards, twin tails, etc.) Truth is, the 2nd choice sees
action maybe 3 or 4 times a year.

Worms (6" or better) Black G****, followed by Green pumpkin.

Worms (4") Motor Oil, smoke, black g****, green-weenie.

Grubs (any) Smoke, Gourd Green (amber w/grn & blk flk), green pumpkin.

Soft Jerkbaits, If alewives or shad are primary forage, alewife or
albino shad color. Otherwise, Golden Shiner.

Pretty boring, huh?
