Jigs With No Keeper

Recommended Posts

Do you use jigs that do not have a keeper to help keep your trailer on the jig? If you do, what situations do you use them in?

Oh Ok, Duh on me.

I dont think I have ever used a jig without a keeper. They would work well with pork baits or a plastic rigged like a pork bait.

Naked or a drop of superglue to hold a trailer on.

This jig has a "keeper" as you call it.

The other jigs are very compact design for dropping the jig straight down into cover. You could nose hook a trailer or as suggested superglue it in place. Without the skirt, the compact jig can be used with wacky rigged Senkos.

I fish a lot of undressed jigs (dart heads, stand-up heads, ball heads, etc.) without adding an additional trailer to whatever dressing I'm using on them. Those jigs would work great as swim jigs and either a long, full skirt, or a swimbait in place of the skirt. You could also fish them as pictured and add a swivel and small willow blade for some flash when swimming or stroking them.

Nice job on the jigs. Trim a little bit on the weedguard and your good to go.

i know that many of the jigs on the market today come with some type of trailer keeper. even when using a plastic trailer on a jig, i still hang it just as you would pork. here is a way for you to see the difference in how your trailer reacts. use the same jig. thread your trailer onto the hook shank. put in the water and swim it and jig it up and down letting it settle to the bottom. now hang the same trailer on the hook like pork and repeat. you will find that your trialer has much more action when hung. when on the hook shank the head blocks water flow off of the trailer causing it to have less action.
