Grizzly Jig Company
The Nation’s Largest Crappie Store
For a crappie angler, it doesn’t get much better than Grizzly Jig. The first time you walk into their store, you have to take a moment and take in the view. The amount of soft plastics alone can put a Crappie angler into shock, and that is just the beginning! If the soft plastics and jig heads displays aren’t enough, wait until you see the rod room! There are over 1,000 rods made by 50 different manufactures in stock. No matter what style or technique of fishing you prefer, Grizzly Jig has you covered!
The owners, Wade and Louie Mansfield, pride themselves on making sure they have what the pan fisherman needs or wants in stock. “If our customers are asking for something new, we do what we can to make sure we will carry that product,” according to Wade Mansfield. Wade also shared with me that the staff at Grizzly Jig are all very knowledgeable on any aspect of crappie fishing. He said, “We all fish and understand what the beginner to the tournament pro needs. We build relationships with our customers.” The list of pros that visit Grizzly Jig is a “who’s who” among crappie crappie anglers: Ronnie Capps, Steve Coleman, Billy Blakley, Russ Bailey, Wally Marshall, Todd Huckabee, and Kevin Rogers are examples of some of the relationships they’ve built over the years.
Grizzly Jig not only has you covered on the tackle side, but they have a large line of marine accessories such as boat seating, seat hardware, Hummingbird and MinnKota electronics. From a bank fisherman to a tournament pro, Grizzly has you covered!
