Jigheads (or "lead heads") come in a wide variety of shapes and styles, and are among the most versatile tool in your fishing arsenal, but choosing which jighead to use for a particular application can be a tough task.
Jigheads are so versatile because there is a setup for just about every application. They can be worked along the water bottom or swam throughout the water column. Over the years jigheads have only become more popular with the introduction of new trailer designs. With so many different jigheads and trailers determining the right combination for your application can be brain racking at times.
The good old ball style, is great at getting down quick to fish holding near the bottom. Many heads are now painted and can be matched with trailers. The best trailer to pair a ball style jighead with are worms, minnows, bucktails, and grubs. Ball style jigheads are great for situations where you know fish are holding below you.
