Clam Drop Tg Jig

Clam Drop Tg Jig
A Glow Blue Drop Tg Jig.

David Harrison of Lawrence, Kansas, is a fellow contributor to In-Fisherman publications and a field-tester for Clam Outdoors. And he alerted us to the 1/16-ounce Clam Pro Tackle Drop Tg Jig, saying that Midwest Finesse anglers might find it to be a useful addition to their repertoire.

The head is ball-shaped and 98% of it consists of tungsten, which is heralded as being environmentally safe. Plus, thanks to the density of tungsten, the same weight is attained while the head is smaller than one made from lead.

The diameter of the Drop Tg Jig is slightly more than a quarter of an inch with a circumference of about three-quarters of an inch.

The head is affixed to a number-one Japanese high-carbon-steel hook with a 90-degree bend. The shank of the hook is endowed with a metal bait keeper, which is situated at three-sixteenths of an inch from the back of the head. The bait keeper is five-sixteenths of an inch long.


The distance from the center of the eye of the hook to the apex of the round bend of the hook is 1 1/8 inches. The distance between the shank and its point, called the gap, is three-eighths of an inch.


The Drop TG Jig is available in the following hues:

Chartreuse/Lime, Chartreuse/Orange, Firetiger, Glow Blue, Glow Watermelon, Gold, Pink/White, and Matte Black. It is interesting to note that a blue head has become a very effective color in 2020.

Some anglers, such as Travis Myers of Paw Paw, West Virginia, prefer to insert the head of the jig inside the tip of the anterior section of a soft-plastic Midwest Finesse bait. We found that the head of the 1/16-ounce Drop Tg Jig is easy to rig on a Z-Man Finesse TRD or TRD TicklerZ.

According to the folks at Clam the Drop Tg Jig “gives open water anglers the secret to ice fishing success.” That success revolves around the bait’s ability to fall from the surface towards the bottom with less resistance than a lead jig, and it also provides more sensitivity.


A package of two can be purchased at a variety of websites from $7.99 to $8.99.
