Default Jig heads?

Hi,

Today I met someone while fishing and he showed me how to fish a 4.5 inch sluggo on a jig head. It produced some very effective results. He had on a very light jig head, but I don't know the exact weight. What weight would you guys reccomend?

Thanks

Default Re: Jig heads?

The proper weight all depends on the size of the tail, the strength of the current and how deep you want to fish it. There is no one answer to that question. I've used anything from 3/8 oz to 5 oz, depending on where and when I'm fishing.
