Has anyone else fished these type of jigs before? It was a bit of a chore to cast but doable. Any recommendations for tying some of these up? I bought some 1/24 oz jigs to tie but am maybe thinking I should go lighter? Maybe 1/32? Any advice would be appreciated.Thanks.

I tie several patterns on jig heads. Let your imagination go.

That size jig should not be any harder to cast than a weighted nymph.Just open up your casts with slower movements If you are also casting a bobber to suspend the nymph that gets ugly no matter what you do..
Crappie also love small white maribou streamers, buggers. or white, sparse, bucktails with a small spit shot at the nose. Fish just like jigs if you are retrieveing them instead of suspending them. .

Let it sink to the bottom. If it makes it to the bottom let it sit there for a painfully long time. When you can't stand it no more pick it up and let it sink to the bottom again. "Custom" (that word always cracks me up when it comes to tying jigs) jig tyers charge 3 bucks a pop for hair jigs around my way and people buy them
