Jig Pimpin' | So Many Ways to Fish a Jig

Jul 05, 2022 Fishing Tips

Jigs are among the most effective bass fishing lures, in part, because they are among the most versatile. Most days on the water, a jig can be altered in appearance or action to deliver your biggest bite. Maybe even a new PB!

A quick look at how a jig is built will reveal details of how it is intended to be fished. A football jig is designed with a broad head that increases bottom contact for greater feel when fishing deep water or the dark recesses of offshore structure.

Football jigs were created to be dragged along ledges and humps but even such a dedicated design can be used in a variety of ways. When the standard dragging method isn’t drawing strikes, hop the jig off bottom.

Then there’s the ‘stroking’ technique wherein an angler rips the jig off bottom with an aggressive upward snatch of the rod, and then lowers the rod tip allowing the jig to swim toward the lake floor (assuming it makes it that far before a bass is triggered into biting).

Trailer style matters. Sometimes a more subtle trailer will close the deal. 

Whether you're new to bass fishing or looking to smash your PB, the MONSTERBASS Regional Pro Series bass fishing subscription is designed to help you become a better angler and put you on bigger bass more often.
