What i do is throw the jig out let it hit the bottom, shake it twice, pop it off the bottow twice, and then slow retrieve in with rod tip up. I caught several hawgs just on the swim back. I have never caught one by jigging it on the bottom. Also the biggest bass i caught with this jig was 7 1/2 pounds just by swimming it a foot off the bank. I use 1/2 for the swimming technique i feel it gives me better control and i use 1/4 for the toss and let it fall technique

I throw watermelon pumpkin in clear water, and black/blue in stained water. Both work very well. In early spring, I throw the black/blue in clear water as well with good results.

If you match the hatch you will catch fish with this jig I use green pumpkin in all water clear or stained. The green color matches every thing the bass see's every day.

depending on what color your foliage is, green foliage then go with a green skirt. olive is ideal for playing hide and seek with bass if you have some sort of noise maker on it

answer 10
This jig is meant to mimic a crawfish so the best color would be the one that mimics the color of your local craws. I like the black / brown spice (#21) and the emerald / brown spice (#22) in clear water. For stained I like them a bit flashier: black / red (#13) or watermelon / red (#14).

Question

How well do these stand up?

I'm on a tight budget, and most of the football head jigs are a little bit more expensive than I can afford, so I'm wondering if this'll stand the hook up as well as a football head jig.

i believe it does. it has a heavy hook and i have always gotten good sets with it. the only thing negative i can say about this is that the rattles fall off with every fish. so now i swap out the rattle band and they work great. the craw pattern is my go to bait. i use the 5/8 and 3/4 oz. also won't get hung up as much as a football

You get what you pay for when it comes to fishing! The hook dose stand up in the water. I have used both the foot ball ( strike king ) and the boo jig. I catch bigger fish on this jig over the football.The football is good but this one to me is better. I use this jig year round. And have won a bass durby with the largest SMB .

answer 6
It will stand up but the design is not as advantageous for coming through rocks. I like to flip or pitch it into grass, holes in the grass or outside/inside weed lines. Count down the fall and compare the depth; often Bass will inhale before it can reach bottom and you will want to set the hook ASAP.

answer 7
They don't stand up on the bottom nearly as well as a football head jig because the head is more narrow. It will stand up for a little while on the bottom, but will soon fall on it's side, especially if you are dragging it on and over rocks. Hope this helps.

absolutely.the slipper type head pulls through the mats and less hangups on brushes . but i use at least 5/8-3/4 oz for that with a craw trailer, berkley green pumpkin chigger chunk, or the new F2 money craw with a 1/4 inch cut off also in green pumpkin. flip and swim through grass, or find a good drop off from 2-4ft down to 20ft and hopp it till you find the depth they are at. heavy jig will help you feel the bottom terrain better

i think it would fare just fine, it has a pretty stout hook and weedguard. the line tie might not be the best for a flipping jig though. strike king's hack attack jig is another good flippin jig
