While the captains did their best to have all of the most popular colored jigs on hand, there were times when we were in short supply or completely out of the hottest color at that time. Rather than compromise with an off color, most skippers carried a draw of powder jig paints in a variety of colors that would eventually become the hot color for a few days. They also kept an ample supply of unpainted bucktail jigs and plain jigheads (for soft plastics), where a little heat from a cigarette lighter and a dip in the jar of the powder kept us on the bite with the rest of the fleet.
