This is def something pressured fish have never seen.

Agreed....swim jigs flat catch fish. For me the rage craw trailer in sparse grass has been devastating. This hybrid bait really opens up options where the rage trailer is a bit out of place. I am very curious to burn/wake it as well as a slow roll.

Mid to late 80's - Roland Martin, in cahoots with Blue Fox, marketed a very similar jig.   Not as sophisticated color scheme, of course, but a very similar idea.   Strike King also offered a similar jig around the same time.   Blue Fox one had a willow leaf blade, as I recall the Strike King model had a Colorado blade.   Late 70's, Fishing Facts magazine had an article about how to put blades on the back of Johnson Silver Minnows,  that bait was fished slightly sub-surface, an old school take on a swimming jig.

 

History aside - glad you found a bit modification what works for you.

Got several swim jigs and rarely pull them out.  I tend to go Lipless crank in those situations.  Might have to rethink that.  No real reason other than confidence.  Trouble is, after burying a treble in my finger earlier this summer, I find myself a little hook shy.  Looks like my swimmers will see the light of day....soon

Pretty much all I ever fish are swimjigs, and I was eyeing the heck out of those the other day!

Pepper custom baits has one like that, called the Boom Boom plus swim jig. Fred Roumbanis designed it.

Yep, started doing this in 1990, nothing new really, just newly discovered by other fisherman.

Looks good.. I'm certain it will work too...

I gave it a once over and will say that it catches fish. As predicted the retrieve is totally different, and the feel odd. For me this would be used as an adjustment to my go to swim jig and rage trailer if the fish were acting funny. I cant say that I would have this tied on in place of my go to. Having to trim the skirt up to accommodate the blade gave the jig an interesting look as well. I also think that this could easily replace the midnight special for you night time guys if you put a big thumper on the back of it. I will keep throwing it around to see when and where it works best, but my go to is that for a reason.

I'll just use a spinner bait instead.

Can't fool me. Thats a Strike King Tour Grade Swim Jig, not a Dirty Jig. Nice try though.  :laugh5:
