Great jig especially the Missouri craw color. I match it with a powerbait chigger craw and had a great day out on the califiornia delta caught about 15 total fish.
TIP: Get a stiff rod weed guard is tough.

Love these Jigs
These are the best jigs for rock, gravel, and these jigs even swim well.
I agree that the trailer barb "could be a little larger," however, then the rattle collars may not go over. I found a little dab of super-glue works just fine! to hold everything in place.
I've never had a clogged eye out of the package, but with any jig brand, you're bound to eventually have a clogged eye once and awhile.
When these went on sale, I ran to the Bass Pro in Broken Arrow, OK and bought a bunch. Had to go back for more when the colors were replenished.

These enticer series jigs are some of the best on the market. I have read complaints about the paint chipping away and it will, just like every other jig regardless of brand. I always trim the weed guards a little on all of my football jigs to increase hookups so the length of the weed guard in my opinion is perfect.
Face it if you are dragging a jig through a rocky bottom... banging off the rocks, the paint is going to chip. Add some extra clear nail polish if it really concerns you.
The variety of colors is pretty good although there are a few combination's they could add. I can not fault BPS for their lack of every imaginable color out there.
My favorite colors are PB&J, Blue / Black Flash and Okeechobee.
Add a Yum Chunk trailer or F2 Craw Papi for some added attraction.

getting jiggy with it
i bought a few jigs to try after making my own for a long time. the colors are very good and the jig seems to sink a bit slower than mine. i like tossing the lighter jigs, i think they produce more strikes. the skirts hold up well and the gamakatsu hooks are probably the sharpest on the market. of course, the weed guard can be trimmed to your preference, i like to keep 'em on the short side. tipped with your favourite trailer, bass jigs always provoke agressive strikes. a great lure for all bassers.

You don't want a football jig. They are for rocky banks and bottoms and should be dragged slowly. For the type of fishing you are suggesting, pick one with a somewhat cone-shaped head. This allows you to come thru the cover you mentioned. Also, you'll probably want to go with a bulkier jig and trailer for a larger profile. I'd go 3/8 or 1/2 oz. depending on water temp and wind.
Color does make a differance depending on the weather conditions. On cold days you cant go wrong with a black and blue color and on blue bird sky i stick with a craw color. Also i fish dale hollow alot which is super clear and i use lighter test which gets me more bites.

Yes, color makes a difference even at those depths. It helps to know what the fish are feeding on so you could use similar colors. Never underestimate the value of size though and keep in mind the variations in retrieve and vibration. Fish in clear water can be the most finicky fish.
Although some strikes will come as the lure falls, I'd say the colors less of a factor. I'd recommend a jig with a rattle in the head in those darker depths, instead of this one. Plus, the paint falls off these really quickly in my experience, and I'll try a different jig next time.
The bait size is all realitive really. A fish depending on species will try to take almost any size bait in it's mouth. A bass that's 13" will hit these jigs just as often as a bass twice it's size. A bitsy jig or finesse jig may offer better chances of hook up depending on fishing location even within the same body of water. If the fishing is slow or depending on the season smaller baits may get you more bites. The weight of the jig you use will depend on how fast you want it to fall, how far it has to fall, and structure or cover you're trying to get into.
Weight of the lure doesnt have much to do with size of fish, but the depth of water does. The deeper the water the heavier the jig you need. If you cant feel the bottom go to a heavier jig. The overall lure size is same just the head size is different. The bass will crush it if you put it on the menu for em'

I like to keep my jigs small. Fish like an easy meal. 1/2 oz works nice for feel.
Any size fish will hit any size jig at a given time and my biggest fish have came off jigs. There are so many variables that affect jig fishing but speaking in basics if conditions allow stick to 1/4 or 3/8. Usually the wind and how deep you fish will determine what size jig you need. Experiment with different size trailers because they will often affect how fast the jig falls and give it a larger appearence when needed.
