Looking for feedback.
My son Andrew has qualified for the Jr. Bass Chammpionships up here in VA after his first tournament last fall. Since then I have been messing around trying to tie up some jigs to give him some alternatives to the soft plastics most fish. Please share your ideas and critique.
Thanks
TC

Thanks Jack. Andrew is growing up too fast. Looks me right in the eye now. Is obsessed with fishing. Wish it was with the fly rod but at this age he could be into a lot worse than fishing. Here's a picture of him with a couple of his bass at the tournament.

Good looking bugs for sure..and a fine young man with "roots".You have done well .One thing maybe is add a little pork tail to them jigs on site and pitch them in the timber and brush.Used to work for me in most lakes. Be safe

Love the crawdad! The jigs look good as well. I would add 1/2 dozen strands of Sili-legs, Spanflex, or plain old rubber legs splayed around the jighead. I like the pig idea that Smoke offered too. Slows the fall a bit. Can't believe he is so growed up! Well, actually, I can. I look at mine the same way. Saw Colin at UNC last Sunday. He bent DOWN to give me a hug!

Put some legs like Jule said on the green jig and tell him to fish it along with the crawfish

I would fish the green jig B/4 the others unless there are a lot of shad present at which time I would throw the blue/white jig
