match the forage in the lake if it is bluegill then use green pumpkin if it is shad use white if the water is stained use black and blue

Siebert Outdoors Bluegill pattern/ Rage Tail Shell Cracker (hard candy). Let the bait settle to the bottom and then slow retrieve. The bait creates all of the action, you do nothing but reel.

A swim jig and the rain is a deadly combination, I would use either white, black and blue or a blue gill type color and have a few different size matching trailers.

For me, green pumpkin is the only color I throw as most places I fish have bluegill as the primary forage. 7/16 has been my top producing size for a while.

I like to cast out a swim Jig, and try to bang it into weeds, timber or whatever, similar to a square bill, I rarely fish it slowly on the bottom, I use it like a spinnerbait/Rattle trap, Seibert Bullet swim jigs are awesome as you can let them fall into pockets of weeds, but the key is a good soft weedguard and good hook...

If you can't order from Siebert, Strike King makes a few good ones...plus you can swim an Arkie Jig as well, I find I only use 1/4-3/8, I like to swim a Rage bug or Menace on a weighted hook near the bottom, but you can't go wrong with all the above suggestions....

The Strike King Hack Attack Swim Jig is a really good over the counter Jig in all colors, they only carry 3-4 in the colors mentioned and I find White, Bluegill, black and blue, and Blue Magic all I really need....Just have a baitfish trailer and a craw style trailer ready to go...

Swim Jigs have accounted for probably a third of my bass this year, bluegill color, swam along the outside edges of weed beds from shore.
