Jig Fishing

One of the questions I get asked the most is what is your favorite bait. Well the answer is actually very easy, but also very complicated. Here’s why. My answer is a Strike King jig. The problem is that there are so many different ones and they can all be very effective depending on the situation. First, there are flipping jigs. The Hack Attack heavy cover flipping jig is what I use in most all flipping and pitching applications. Then there are finesse jigs for clear rocky lakes when you are trying to imitate smaller prey. Next there is the Football Jig for dragging around in open water, ledges and brush piles. And finally, the Hack Attack Swim Jig, which is very effective nearly anywhere. With all of them I use either a Strike King Rage Craw or Rage Baby Craw as a trailer. There are tons of great color combinations and nearly all can be deadly. What a bait!
