Swim jig deep water

Recommended Posts

Started fishing swim jigs the last 2 years and has been working well for me in 6 foot or less water. Curious to see how many people fish them in deeper water...say 10-25 foot. What size weight and line are you using?

By deep I am usually fishing 10-20 FOW on my home lakes. I like a 1/2 oz poisontail style head and paddletail style trailer. Basically I will lift the rod tip and lower it significantly so that the jig is moving up and down the water column vs just a standard straight line retrive I would use in shallower water.

I call it horizontal jigging. Go online and search for the article.

Been eyeballing those...just not a big fan of EWG hooks. 

I'm not either but in a Rage Lobster it is necessary!

I call it jig fishing, under that category falls swimming, casting, flipping, pitching, punching, & skipping.

I don't change jigs or tackle simply because I've changed presentations

I might do all 6 on a single piece of structure!

Thanks Glenn but wrong link, I was thinking Oldschool Horizontal Jigging, 15 Sept 2012.

is there a split ring on these so the hooks can be changed?

No its more of just a twisted piece of wire but yes the hooks can be changed

This is wrong. I got these confused with the freedom swing heads. The hooks on this jig cannot be changed. Sorry
