Rattlin' Grass Stalker Jigs....how To Question

Recommended Posts

I've used jigs a little.  Have caught a few fish on jigs.  However, I am definitely NOT a jig fisherman.  I picked up a 3/4 oz Rattlin' Grass Stalker jig made by Uncle Josh Bait Co.  The package contains 2 round elongated pieces of plastic.  One end has a ball glued in.  Other end has a smaller diameter....like maybe I should be attaching it to my line here.  I tried searching, but couldn't find any information on how to use these 2 pieces of black plastic.

 

A little help from you guys would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi Dale,

    That's one of jigs that have the concave pit in the head to slow the fall.  And, it has a little rubber "rattle keeper" band on the hook.  They send 2 elongated plastic rattles with the bait. the part with the round ball tip is the part you slip UNDER the rubber band to make it rattle.  You can choose to put no rattles on it, one or two. 

    I've not fished with one of these but saw someone who was.  Looks like it would be great in grass as it falls slower, thereby enabling you to work it slow and not have it sink into the weeds or mud.

     Maybe someone else can chime in on what's the best color.

 

Now I'm going to have to order some!!

Thanks, Mitch.  I got my reels back from DVT Friday.  Took the light braid off the Trion, and spooled on some 17# Sufix Elite.  Mounted the reel on a 6'10" Heavy rod.  Wanted a 3/4 oz or heavier lure.  No idea where my 3/4 oz spinnerbait is, but found this jig.  Heading to Dick's for a Fat Albert in Chartreuse Pearl for a trailer and to add more weight.

 

I had Mike try casting this reel.  He said "the Trion is a great casting reel once dialed in. I was casting a 5" Senko and 1/8th bullet" and with "2 brakes on" it will "launch a bait 75' with no effort at all and barely any thumb."  Was mounted on a custom MH rod.

 

This was great news as I had major over-run/backlash issues throwing an unweighted worm while in Florida.  Reel has an amazing amount of free spool which is why I thought it would work with light baits.  It will now be confined to 3/8 or heavier baits on a stouter rod.  Heading down to the river for a little casting practice to see if I can cast with it as effortlessly as Mike did.  Will also have to give pitching a try with this reel.

 

Appreciate the info on using the rattles.

My personal favorite jig...I bought 25 of them in 3/8 a few years back. It's my favorite jig for casting and retrieving over vegetation. The head is at the right angle and has a vertical line tie, and a durable finish. I usually put a bluegill skirt by secret weapon lures with a rage or paca craw on the back.

You may also check out the booyah "A JIG". Similar head design, and has the living rubber like a mop jig, but a vertical line tie as a opposed tithe mops horizontal.
