For fishing weeds, I exclusively use the Northland jig called the Weed Weasel in your choice of colors. I have found that for many mid Minnesota lakes that the Firetiger color is the color of choice. In some waters like lake of the woods, it is tough to beat either white, or pink or red and white or pink and white:

The weed weasel can be baited with your choice of bait and run through weeds with normally very few snags or issues.

In shallow water, I will often use the 1/16th oz jig.

Best wishes

Another jig design that works well is BFishin Dragin jigs, the thin profile and weed guard works well.

Gary: Take a look at Neustrom's take on walleye weed fishing.

This is actually solid advice which is common knowledge in our neck of the woods (where he lives and fishes).
That being said he is a legend in his own mind and an unapologetic self promoter.

I know Tom personally and yes it is solid information...and agree . I looked at the clip of Tom, following his video is one with Dave Csanda and Jimmy Lindner and the technique in action

The fastest action I have ever had catching walleyes was 30 years ago on Rice Lake, Ontario. Rice is a very shallow lake and by mid-summer is one big weed bed. My buddy and I were casting Northland lipstick jigs (not made any more but pretty close to the "Slurpi" shape only just a ball with a flat spot, with a grub body and a marabou tail.

It was like casting into a school of bluegills. Every cast was a fish. Nothing big, but lots of fun. I still remember that day. I still don't know why that particular jig was working so well, I still have half a dozen of them in my jig box for the good memories.

Several years ago I saw Neustroms video and it was a game changer for me. It works.
