What's your favorite jig for working weeds or timber? I think I am on the hunt for another one this season. Northland Weed Weasel is very good, but I don't like the heavy hook they use. The ISG Slow fall has a lot nicer hook, but the head shape is not the best. May have to look for something from a small manufacturer to find a really good one. It would be nice to have one down to 1/32 oz. too.

I use the Slo-Fall weedless jig to vertical jig the river for walleye in timber. When using them I opt for a rod that has more backbone and use a no stretch braid type line to get the best hookset possible. A lighter more sensitive rod results in more missed bites from an incomplete hookset than when using a stiffer rod. The weedless jigs that have wire hair brush guards work ok to get through the timber but the fish shy away from the wire hair and seldom take the jig enough to get a hookset.

Looking more for walleye and even panfish type weedless and brush jigs.

It would be great to see a min-Weed-Weasel or Slo-Poke weedless jig.

1/16 and 1/32 sizes with a smaller #4 or even #6 hook would be great.

I've always liked Strike Kings Denny Brauers Structure Jigs.

Slo-Poke weedmaster.

Rob Manthei turned me onto these a few years ago. They cut through weeds and brush without much issue. When/if you get them, be sure to trim the guard back a little bit as it will help your hooking percentage.http://www.ebait.com/baitrigs/category/walleyeJigs.html
