    Tried Ed's jigs (pink with white bottom and pink skirts) for the first time at Catalina Island on 11/8/11. Hooked up with 4 Vermilion's in less than half an hour of fishing.

    Does adding sent to these jigs like ProCure or Unibutter help or hurt? Or does it seem to make any difference?

    Wow - here I am in Cprpus Christi, Texas answering a 4 1/3 year old post about Ed's Jigs!!! :)

    Color depends on what the fish are eating - available feed :) I always liked the Tiger Stripe or White Squid jig :)

    I need to come bounce some of Ed's jigs myself! :cheers:

    thanks for the input, after all i read i had to try them. On my first go round this weekend, they were not biting very well all day. Boat got 25 between 13 people. I was using the pink and white with a squid teaser above it (my inexperience led to not catching one on the eds) i should have noticed the bite on squid and switched to white. Thank you for the awesome write up on how to use them, hopefully itll help me put some bigger quality fish and more of them in the boat!

    Don't give up - once you get the hang of it you will never go back to bait..............

    Been my experience that if you didn't catch any it was because they weren't there...............

    yep, its all about adapting to the conditions....meaning: match the hatch. If the fish are puking up squid, I go to a white, skirted jig. if they are puking up red crabs, or krill, it's tiger stripe all the way.

    on "slower" days, I find that the pink with silver back gets them.

    Since we tend to fish pretty deep.....I dont think it is necessarily the color....but the contrast of the colors.

    Hope to get out this weekend and do a little R&D....

    How you doing Harry? :D

    Congrats on the new boat! How you going to tote that thing around in your travels, or are you just going to keep it stored away somewhere?

    Been hitting Key West every winter for 5 or more weeks, it will go next winter...........meanwhile, probably store it in Destin or somewhere in Florida, maybe Cocoa Beach, have not figured out all the details yet :) I got tired of missing alot of great fishing on the Emerald Coast, that won't happen any more :) We spend alot of time in and around Florida every year, parents are really not any younger and they are all here (there).
