Swim Jigs and Smallies

Recommended Posts

I want to throw more swim jigs for SMB but I haven't had much success. Those of you who are good with throwing swim jigs for smallies are there any tips/recommendations to improve my chances with them? Also post some pics of your favorite swim jigs.

I don't about swim jigs for smallies but I know hair jigs are popular.

They'll absolutely take them most of the year.  What kind of waters are you fishing?

100% large deep rocky lakes. No bass in the rivers around here.

I would search the threads here on basic structure fishing. A swim jig might be the most versatile thing you can soak.  

 

Do you have questions about where and when to use them? Is it more about the size/type/trailer? Or are you just looking for a swim jig 101 you're looking for?

I like these ~ 

They are a mixture of 6th Sense, Bass Dozer and I think there's one Strike King mixed in there.

I do up my own skirts so my preferred color pallet is usually perchy & bluegill/pumpkinseed-ish.

I'm usually throwing them the same type of shallower deals I'd use a spinnerbait, but often when there's less wind and / or super clear water - around or over vegetation and high(er) in the water column.

Depends on the water clarity and forage base. Personally I do best with a shad colored jig for sm but a perch/bluegill one catched bigger fish overall but they are usually lm.

On the lighter side, I like to throw a VMC Rugby jig (3/16 or 1/4 oz) along with a chartreuse Twin Tail Hula Grub... hard to beat around light cover, rocks.  

 

If if I go a little heavier, I like a Dirty Jigs swim jig and Craw Fatty.
