I just cant seem to by a good jig online and have to look at them in person. The pics online don't show the keepers for the trailers. I need a good jig with a good keeper to keep my plastic up and tight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fshndudley Changed the hook
These jigs used to have a strong wide gap hook and now they have a light wire round bend that bends very easily on hook sets. I hope they change back

Not the best football head jig. Weed guard is totally off and rubber collar is not good. Not sure if its worth $2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by joefromvirginia Better than they Used to be
Have used twice and have not caught a fish with one yet, but I know it is not the fault of the football jig. Fiber guards are better and holding up, the paint is holding up well. As stated above have used on two different trips and using the same one, so no doubt they are better than they used to be.
Only grip is that the line ties where filled with hard paint.

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.
