Special hooks for Crappie Jig Flys?

3 posts in this topic

Do you use special longer shank hooks for crappie jig flys? I got some do-it molds for the round head with no collar and was wondering if I use regular 90 degree hooks or if there are some with longer shanks.

Quote from crappiemasters.net

"We noticed that fishermen preferred bigger hooks in their jigs," says Wade Mansfield of the Grizzly Jig Company. "Many 1/32-ounce jigs come with a #6 hook. We pour our standard 1/32-ounce with a bigger #4 hook and the 1/16- and 1/8-ounce heads with a #2 hook and that seems to better fit what most crappie fishermen prefer. They want a good quality hook that's sized for crappie."
