I get that, unless you have Bo’s heads it’s hard to find a wire that doesn’t need to be re-bent. Stronger wires were needed and I agree. Just couldn’t find them. 

Please explain. 

Salted Caramel Crown hit town today.  😄  I'm happier than a fag in a dick tree!

Speaking of 3 fish, here's 3 fish in 3 consecutive pitches....same dock, same jig.  👍 

It gets exciting when that happens.  🌝

Was that dock on a main lake point? 😂

I agree with you totally.
 

Some verbiage I received was that the skirt adds secondary movement.  I’ve always fished it stand alone after it was perfected. At the beginning I actually designed it as a hair jig trailer for winter fishing...based on our time with Nick.  The other factor is some people just can’t seem to give up the traditional jig skirt. It’s just a hard to break habit I guess. 

I guess it is.  To be honest, I tried the HD Craw on a jig a few times, never thought it was as good as using it alone.  And not any better than any other jig and trailer combination.  But heck, 75% of success on any lure is having confidence in it.  If folks have confidence that a certain trailer works better on a jig, it probably will, for them.  I gotta wonder, though, how many guys who say that so-and-so is their best lure (or lure combination in this case) are having so much success on it because that's what they use most or all the time.

There has been a trend in the last 5 or so years (maybe longer) to reduce the number of skirt strands on jigs. The Dirks jig would probably be the best example. I’m talking less than 20 strands, more like 12-15. It definitely makes the jig more finesse and adds more of a subtle look. It also kind of hides a wire weed guard, which is another good feature. I still don’t get those telephone pole fiber weedguards.

When you're shooting/skipping a jig under docks, cables, boat hoists, etc.  A wire weedguard just causes problems.  You get the jig in.....and the wire looks like a lawnmower just ran over it.    For standard limp-wristed floozie casting....they are fine. 😄

That’s because most use wimpy wires
