Cool!!! Glad you were successful! I'll send you email later on today with pics of tackle I use.
I'd really like to make my own jigheads and weights, it would be a little cheaper. I stop at Wheeler Dam Market and get the weights I need and the grubs/jigheads.
I use chartreuse or white jigs, unpainted heads no fuzz. When I use the larger shad shaped jigs I rig them with the heavier hook. I've caught some big stripes and good sized smallmouth with the bigger (around 3" jig) but I've caught more fish on a small curly tail grub. A big stripe that decides to run downstream will often straighten the hook on a small jig.
