The Demon is like an institution among ice fishermen. In fact, some anglers never use another jig style… instead, they keep a variety of sizes and colors on hand to catch any species at any time of year, anywhere. Yep, the Demon offers versatility in spades. The Demon’s design is deceptively simple, but don’t let that fool you. It’s built like a Sherman Tank, only smaller. Lots smaller. Beetle-shaped body… two-toned high gloss finish… Fluorescent-colored Demons feature a nickel back and Glow Brite finishes are painted on both sides.
The Demon size 10 is the most popular panfish pick – and the size 12 is a premier ultra-light lure for finicky fish. Tipped with a single spike, the Demon 12 is a tremendous shallow water bluegill producer. The Demon size 8 is great for perch and crappies or any fish species keying in on larger profile forage. Demon size 6 has the same size body as the size 8, but the size 6 hook will accept a larger minnow or other supersized bait options. When fishing “eater” walleyes, the Demon size 6 will outproduce heavier, bulkier jigs on highly-pressured lakes. The largest size 4 is an excellent choice for chasing the bigger ’eyes, but make sure to balance your tackle! A Demon size 4 used with a whole minnow or minnow head on a medium-action rod and 6 pound test line, while a Demon size 12 used on a light rod with 2 pound test line. Size 4 is nearly unbeatable on a dead stick or jingle reel; size 12 is deadly on a long rod in shallow water.
Don’t overlook the Demon for open water. Size 4 Demons in Glow Brite colors like GB7 are super effective for walleyes in dirty, high-water river situations or the tannic waters of the North. Tip it with a large fathead minnow or shiner and cast on light spinning tackle. Strikes can range from subtle taps to full-on reaction bites that nearly yank the rod from your hand! And don’t forget size 6 and 8 Demons for panfish! Worms, small leeches, minnows, waxworms and maggots make ideal partners to any Demon.
Hands down the best crappie, bluegill, and perch jigs

The black and orange size 12 tipped with a spike on 2 lb test out fishes anything out there. Yellow chartreuse and green catch a lot also. My two mains for panfish and perch and can pull fish when nobody around me is getting hits.
Great on ice and open water

The Demon Jig is my go to when nothing else seems to work. I started using these when living in Minnesota and doing a lot of ice fishing. While fishing for gills one August dog day, I could not get them to chase or bite anything. In frustration, I swapped out my worm rig and tied on a Demon pink glow brite. I could see on the gills hugging the bottom in about 16 foot of water on the humminbird. I suspended the demon jig about a foot off the bottom and in ten minutes I had a nice batch of bluegills for the frying pan. Now the demon jigs, in various colors are my go to lure when the gills are fussy.

The demons are by far my go to jig. I go through 30 a year on average (I fish thick weeds). Custom Jigs and Spins makes a quality product, and I've never waited longer than 5 days for them to be at my door.
go to on a dead stick

awesome dead stick bait with fat head for walleyes in winter. also have luck with smaller ones for pan fish under a bobber on open water

I've used the Original pink/white glow brite Demon jig for ice fishing and like it at early open water season fishing for gills and crappie. When the bite slows during the late summer I use it with a drop shot and it works quite well for the bottom dwelling gills. Waxies and mouses are my primary ice fishing go to bait but in summer I use a lot of Northland and Berkley gulp baits, especially the gulp alive chartreuse fish fry. This is my bottom preference in late summer. I like the 8-10-12 size best.

I have only used the orange/glow brite so far but it works beautifully. It caught fish the first time I put it in the water. I will be trying some other colors next winters ice.
