The Awesomeness Of The Jig

Recommended Posts

The Jig is one of the most productive lures for fishing heavy cover of any type known to anglers.

The Jig is one of the most productive lures for catching larger than average bass.

But despite its pure awesomeness the angler must keep in mind there will be days when the bass simply do not want a jig.

So to all the young anglers (not chronological but experientially) struggling when casting, flipping, pitching, or punching with the Awesome Jig keep in mind there will be times when the Jig aint gonna be that AWESOME.

Sad, but true. I would force feed 'em a jig every day if I could, but there are days when it just isn't the right choice.

One of the guys in our club is a Jig addict and he stands in second place for AOY, his primary weapon is the Jig.  They do produce but sometimes they don't especially on lakes where the bass are hitting reaction type lures.  GO JIGs!

Even when they're not biting, you can still learn things from throwing a jig.

When they don't like jigs on the bottom, KVD swim jigs seem to do a good job. I primarily fish jigs of all types, usually catch fish. I have many days with worms and lizards with no fish caught at all.

Yes, there have been a few days when I would have caught more fish if I had given up on the jig sooner, but the benefits of using them far outweigh those days, in my opinion.  I always have at least one tied on.

One of the lakes I fish has very heavy pressure, especially on the weekends. From what I have seen most of the people aren't using jigs, so I usually start off with a black/blue 3/8 and go from there.  If that doesn't work then I go home.

I am still fairly new to bass fishing and so far only use spinning rod and reel combinations.  Is it possible to properly flip and pitch with a spinning reel or is a baitcaster pretty much a necessity?  I have an Abu baitcaster hand me down from my father in law but haven't had the guts to try it yet.

Shore bound I didn't care for jigs, I've lost more than I can count. Being on a boat I have much more respect for the capabilities that can come out of them.
