Anyone tried this JIG?

Recommended Posts

Was considering buying one of these but havent heard anything about them. The Snag Proof Bass Grabber Double Hook Jig. Anyone ever used them?

Dam, I bought some last year and I forgot to use them! I have a store of jigs! I put them some where and fished last year without them. Now I know where I put them,I think I will tie one on now so I don't forget this year. Cool looking jig.

It will help you with hook ups sometimes and hurt you other times imo.

They had a fishing show last year and they were fishing this jig and the hook up's were very good with one or two that got off. I just had to order some, I will try them this year good or bad I will find out! :-?

I do not like what I see, That extra hook is just something extra to have to force through the basses lip.

I agree with this right here, not to mention something extra to get snagged.

Not a chance unless it was given to me! Where I fish a marble would

get hung-up. I don't mind losing jigs, but at $8 a pop, these do not

seem "cost effective".

The same hook concept is on a frog and it doesn't seem to hurt the hook-up ratio.

Compare frog hook up rates to jig hook up rates among those that can fish BOTH well.

I think the actual hook-up ratio isn't bad on frogs.  You usually miss them on frogs because they don't take the bait in.  I think with a bass sucking that jig in, the second hook won't be a problem.  I do agree with *** in that you may get hung up more.

if i'm not mistaken, charlie ingram had something to do with the design.

that should explain things a little better.

He couldn't have. There's no Chatter blade attached! ;D

For $8.00 does it come with a bowl of soup?

Yea, he did.  I remember a year or two back I had a few minutes to waste, so I turned on his show.  He was fishing the prototype for this jig.

Oh, looks good on you though.   ;D

Wow...an $8 jig...  None for me, thanks.

I think even the guys that throw only LC or Megabass hardbaits wouldn't buy these.

If you aren't fishing a jig where it can't get lost, you're not fishing it right.  And I'm not throwing a $8 jig into a tree.

I was wondering about how to get the trailer on too. :-?

For the trailer there is a wire that comes from the jig head and between the two hooks and it has a curve to it that holds the trailer.

This why when you're frogging, you MUST use a follow up bait.  And if a bass not completely taking the bait in doesn't constitute a "hook up" issue, then I must have a different definition.  :)

My definition of 'hook-up' ratio is how do the hooks perform once the fish takes the bait not weather or not they take the bait in or not.  If they swipe and miss the bait completely, the hook is never a factor.  I have lost very few fish on a frog if the fish actually eats the bait.

Its all about hookups and getting thru cover better. They dont work as well as a standard jig getting through rocks and grass. But they wont roll over when coming through wood and dont hang up as much around any wood cover. They have one application where they help you fishing wood. If you fish alot of wood and could use something that doesnt hang up as much then maybe they are worth a try. But really the price is crazy for a jig.

Why are they "missing your bait' as you put it?  They don't usually miss a jig.  I go back to my original statement.  Compare hookup ratios between frogs and jigs, and I think you'll see why this double hook arrangement is not ideal.
