these jigs have proven to be awsome for punching through light cover and also for dragging the bottom. the jigs are weedless and will every now and then hit a snag.

not a good jig
The coloring is off on these. Way off. Green pumpkin is not correct. The line tie is terribly finished as well. Very rough. Also, the skirts are cheap and fall apart. Finally, the weights were not consistent. I used my reloading scale and 1/4 oz was more like 1/8.

super good jig,but the hook would be better if the bite was wider.

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'
