Over the last two years swim jigs have become a staple for me on waters in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. Known largely for it’s effectiveness on river systems, I’ve found it to be equally productive on our lakes as well. When worked correctly, the swim jig comes through the thickest of vegetation when little or no hangups and at the same time offers a very unique subtle presentation.
Since swimming a jig is generally known as a shallow water technique, this subtle presentation becomes even more important. Most “weekend anglers” are shallow water fisherman and the shallow flats on heavily fished waters get very tough. There are always a good number of big bass shallow but these fish simply see a lot of flamboyant baits like frogs, spinnerbaits, and big jigs. Swim jigs on the other hand can still be power fished and move water quickly, but also offer that finesse factor to get shy bass to strike.
Over the past year or two, I have experimented with all sorts of different swim jigs and quickly realized that they are not all created equal. I’ve found that a little tackle manufacturer out of Rice Lake, Wisconsin, has got it down to a science, Super K Swim Jigs. Their superb design of the bait starts with the perfect cone shaped head that insures the bait slips right through the grass. You can throw this bait anywhere! It also comes standard with a hand tied skirt and is offered in many bass catching colors. The best part of this jig is in the business end, Super K Swim Jigs come standard with a stout 5/0 Gamakatsu hook. Fish bite and don’t come off!
Please feel free to visit Super K online and see for yourself just how many more strikes you’ll get!
