Road Runner Barbed Jigheads
The Purchase of a Lifetime
My pap purchased a pack of these from a local fishing shop. I started using them and was totally shocked with the results. After seeing what kind of results it produced, I went ahead and placed an order from Bass Pro. I am without a doubt pleased with the RoadRunner Jig Heads.
I prefer the 1/4oz white heads. They do tend to sink pretty quickly, which will lead to grass, weeds, and slime, etc. getting stuck around the spinner. I find myself constantly picking the stuff off.
If you have a short amout of patience, I suggest you go with a smaller head such as the 1/8 or 1/16 oz heads.
These are definately worth the price. I've caught several of the biggest fish in my life on these things, NO LIE! I don't catch as many fish as others, but the ones I do catch are WALL HANGERS. Another tip for ya, if you wanna catch lots of fish rather than big fish, a smaller size head would probably benefit you more. If you like to catch the bigger fish, instead of the little panfish, go with the 1/4 oz heads. I'm so happy with these things, I can't say enough about them.
I've caught some monster crappie and most recently caught a 19.5 inch, 4 pound largemouth bass. I'm from Central Pennsylvania, so around here that is a MONSTER.
I've included several photos of the MONSTERS that i've caught on the 1/4 oz white roadrunner jighead. Try them out for yourself, you wont regret it!!!

Runs over the fish
The white and green are great. Really love the green though. Road runner is all I use to fish for crappie. Sometimes I will use them for brem. Just get a smaller one for the brem. I cast them over the brush and pull it across slow or jig it sometimes. Just have to try both ways to see what works best. Becareful hiting them against hard surfaces when casting.The paint may come off and the lead may dent. Dont worry to much though.They will last a long time. If you get hung no problem. The hook most of the time and strightin out. Just put it back and keep on fishing. Never lost a fish after fixing the hook.Give them a try. Hope you have the luck I have with them.

I am a serious crappie and bluegill fisherman and the roadrunner is the only jig i will use! It is amazing how the fish just tone in on the jig and have to bite. Last week i was fing at joy lake,Wisconsin and caught a 1.6lb. bluegill. I highly recomend this jig to any type of fisherman who enjoys catching big fish, and when their not biting on the jig just slow it down and do a really slow retrieve and i guarentee they'll bite!

Slow trolling crappie
In the hot summer months I like to slow troll roadrunners. I usually rig a 5/8 ounce line weight above my jig to help get down to the depth. I move my boat S L O W and concentrate on schools of baitfish. The crappie see the flash from the spinner and attack thinking its a shad. I catch more and bigger fish on the roadrunner than any other jig I have used.
