When on the tournament trail in search of Crappies, Walleye, or Bass, hitch up a Horse or Pony Head Jig to your rig as an efficient spinner and jig combination. The lure's head, with its long and drooping nose, resembles a horse's head, hence the name. And it doesn't hurt that the shape looks like a larva to the fish. The slim shape of the jig's head design minimizes the chance of snags in rocks and brush, yet maximizes the flow of water around the lure to turn the spinner blade. Fish strike at the flashing blade which strategically trails near the hook of this great lure.Our tip for swivels:
Your lures will be more effective if the swivels turn freely, and this means keeping them free of paint. A painted swivel may not rotate, thereby reducing the blade action to that of only a flutter. Carefully paint the jigs with a small brush and avoid getting paint on the swivel. If you spray paint the lures, be sure to cover the swivel. A small diameter plastic drinking straw can be cut to length and slipped over the swivel to protect it from paint.
SPECIAL NOTICE TO COMMERCIAL LURE MANUFACTURERS:
On January 16, 1990, the Blakemore Sales Company obtained a U.S. Trademark registration for the shape of a lure resembling those made from our Horse Head and Pony Head lure molds. Lures of this shape have been made and marketed by many different companies, both large and small, for many decades prior to and continuing through the date of registration. They have long been known generically as “horse head jigs” or “pony head jigs.” We thus do not believe the shape can now be a valid trademark belonging to a single company. The validity of this trademark registration has not been tested in court, so the commercial sale of these lures could involve claims against you. As with castings made from any model, the right to use Do-it® Molds to make tackle for commercial use is left for you to determine, and we make no warranty or other representations of any kind with respect to your right to do so.
