Dear Fellow Fisherpeople,
We are in the business of manufacturing and wholesale distribution of a unique line of jigs (that catch tons of FISH!). Currently our line is carried in many fine retail outlets throughout Florida and other parts of the country. While they have been in use, they have caught an amazing array of both fresh and saltwater fish species. Saltwater fish include, but not limited to – Snook, Redfish, Trout, Pompano, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Dolphin “schoolies”, King and Spanish Mackarel, Snapper, Tarpon, Grouper, Tripletail, Tuna, Stripped Bass, Bluefish, Weakfish, Fluke, and in freshwater – Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Striped Bass, etc. Basically, if it swims, Don’s will catch it!

..."I wandered out into the backcountry for a half day with Jerry Ingham last Wednesday and caught some trout, small snook and lots of ladyfish! It was a beautiful day. With the cloudy water we were throwing Don's Jigs, yellow with a red head, tipped with fresh shrimp. The yellow always seems to be better than the white when fishing cloudy water.
Pompano has probably been Marco Island's, "Fish of the Week" with reports of great catches of these hard fighting delicious fish. Again, 1/4 jigs the bait of choice. The mangrove snapper fishing offshore continues to be productive as well as some good Grouper catches."

"I prefer a 1/4 oz. jib with 8 lb. test for the mangroves, points and the beaches. Try the Green Glitter Tailed Glass Minnow for snook. We have a lot of little schools of shiners this time of year. If you work this untipped jib like a wounded little shiner, the snook can't resist it. I also like to tip my jigs with a piece of fresh shrimp, which leads to nice catches of mangrove snapper, redfish, trout, tarpon and sheepshead.
"Try Don's Pot Bellied Jig's.
There are a Southwest Florida tackle box must!"
