Swim jig fishing for bass
Updated: Mar 9, 2020
One of the most underrated techniques in bass fishing today is the swim jig. It is an incredibly effective technique that many anglers use far too rarely or for some, never at all. If you like to throw a spinnerbait, swim bait then the swim jig is something you need to add to your arsenal of on-the-water weapons.
Which Size Swim Jig Should You Use? Swim jigs typically come in sizes ranging from 1/4 – 1 ounce and a little hint, they are not all created equal. So when do you use a smaller jig versus a larger version? It’s all about the depth and the type of cover you’re fishing, as well as the mood of the fish. If you’re fishing shallow, a 1/4 – 3/8 oz might be appropriate. It sinks a little slower, so you can keep the bait in the upper part of the water column. However, there are times when fishing a slightly heavier jig, with a big trailer is killer in the shallows. Especially if you want to really burn the bait quickly. Then you might opt for a 1/2 oz that sinks a little more quickly. Now onto jig trailers. Double tailed craw-style trailers are very popular, something like a Zoom Ultra Vibe Speed Craw. Personally, a zoom fat Albert is my go to it provides a extra motion without the extra price. I hope the helps. #gethooked #louslures
