HAIRY CRICKET JIG

(1 customer review)

$1.85

I created the Hairy Cricket to fish for giant Redear Sunfish and Bluegills. I’ve found that it also catches lots of crappie and catfish and even a few bass. The Hairy Cricket is just a representation of the many bugs that swim around in the lakes and rivers we fish. I like to tip the Hairy Cricket with a small piece of worm. The Hairy Cricket works great worked on the bottom or under a bobber. I like to use the Hairy Cricket Jig with a bobber when fishing around lots of cover for big Redear and Bluegills.

Bluegills With The Hairy Cricket Jig

The Hairy Cricket Jig catches big bluegill. When I am fishing for big redear I have fun catching the many bluegills that are usually in the same areas. Bluegills love the Hairy Cricket Jig. I especially like to throw the jig under a small bobber. The bobber and Hairy Cricket work well around stake beds and brush piles. I have a slotted bobber in my pocket and when I see the cover that might have some bluegills or shellcracker I set the bobber at the correct depth and carefully fish the cover thoroughly. The jig under the bobber helps keep you from hanging up while fishing thick cover. It works great.

The Hairy Cricket Jig Makes The Big Time In Florida Sportsman Magazine

It was an honor to be interviewed by Peter Slis for the Florida Sportsman Magazine. As usual, I went rambling on about fishing and Peter picked it up and mentioned some of those stories in the article and I am so glad. It was great to have my fishing trips in Florida with my dad as a boy forever portrayed in a great publication like The Florida Sportsman. Peter also mentioned my Hairy Cricket Jig in the article and a reader called me to order a few and as I rambled on about catching big bluegills in Florida with my dad the man asked about Highland Park Fish Camp. Long story short he knew my dad and I wouldn’t doubt that I met the man at the cleaning station in them days, as we spent a lot of time there. Great connections made once again because of the Great Outdoors.

 

Catfish On The Cricket

When the bluegills and shellcracker leave the shallows the channel catfish show up to spawn. Spawning channel catfish love The Hairy Cricket Jig. I found out by accident really. I was fishing for redear in the shallows and started catching my favorite eater-size catfish. These channel catfish move up and raid the bluegill beds of their eggs so you will find them in the same places as you did the bluegills and redear. I use my little bobber with the jig set about 2 or 3 foot below. I throw the bobber jig combo near cover and just give it a twitch. They will bite the jig by itself, channel catfish love to eat bugs. However, with just a small piece of worm on the hook, you will get more bites quicker. These little channel cats are just as fun to catch as bluegill and redear and taste good too.
