    For those of you who fish the small tungsten ice jigs, I found a place that sells them at the lowest cost that I have found. Seems like in bait stores they normally cost anywhere from 2.50-3.00 each, and even online from 2.00-3.00. This place sells them for .98 each. I was a little worried about the quality at that pricepoint, so I placed a smaller order to see. I received the order yesterday and after looking them over they seem to be of great quality. Great detailed paint finish, non clogged hook eyes, nice sharp hook. Overall just great quality. They appear to be listed as a lure building components business. They also look to have great deals on other tungsten weights. If you order ice jigs and are need of a small box to hold them. They have a real nice ice jig / fly box for a great price as well. The name of the place is Drop Zone fishing. Here is a link to their web site:

    I always forget what size I use. What size are you using for panfish and crappies?

    Im trying to resist buying any new panfish jigs because I have so many.
    My current Achilles heel are tungsten flies but I probably still have enough for the whole season still.(super secret, dont tell anybody, shhhhhhh)
    And as long as the good ole Gill Pills still work…….

    I mostly fish the 4MM size. although I also have a assortment in both 3MM and 5 MM. There are days when fish seem to want as small of a jig as possible. That’s when I switch to the 3MM size. The problem is they are so small they are hard to work with ( Tying them on, baiting them, and removing the hook ) Sometimes crappies prefer a bigger bait. That’s when the 5MM come into play. I also use the 5MM when fishing deeper water so that I can get the jig back down faster when the bite is really hot. Overall I’d say I fish the 4MM size about 80% of the time.

    Man, I resisted the urge to replenish my tungsten jigs at $1.50 a pop at the St. Paul Ice Show and regretted it once I stopped by Dick’s and was reminded that these can be $3 or more. Now I’ve got a box of 40 on the way but I do have one question:

    Where is the 50% off code? )

    There was a slight problem with my order but instead of correct it they cancelled it and asked me to start over. I’ve lost interest now. No gill getters for me.

    For .98 cents, can’t complain about quality haha. They look good honestly! I’ve used kenders, widow makers, clam, fiskas, and many others. The hook is the biggest test but I’m not worried about these .98 cent ones.

    Kenders has been my go to for several year. They have just got so expensive. To be honest, I believe lots of these venders all get their product from the same manufacture.

    You are correct on the Hooks. They are the huge ?. That being said, I tend to break off hooks fairly often from all the venders. They are just so thin Diam. in that 4MM size. Even worse in the 3mm. at .98 each its not as painful when they break.

    Quick review:

    My order came today and out of 30 4mm, 12 3mm, and 12 5mm jigs I only had to ream out a small handful of the 3/4mm, and strangely the ones I could not get line through were all white ones so maybe that paint was thicker or the guy on the “white” line was lazy )

    This compares to a 5-pack of Clam Dave Genz-branded tungsten jigs where 4 of 5 eye holes were completely painted over (shame on Clam at almost $3 a pop), so having to open up only 4-5 out of 54 jigs is not too shabby!

    The little jig box is sweet also, very happy, thanks again to fishthumper for sharing the find.

    5mm – 4mm – 3mm

    I went with 30 for the 4mm and 12 each of the 3/5mm — the 3mm are TINY especially comparted to the 5.
