Swim Jigs....when to use them???

Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

I fish a swim jig earlier and later in the year than a spinnerbait. Also fish it went the sun is too high for spinnerbait. Nice thing about it is you can also slow it up and fish like a regular jig, especially around weeds due to the pointed nose.

Pre-Spawn and during the spawn, only use Strike King Tour Grade due to the light wire hook. Spawning fish have a hard time committing to baits and this is the only light wire swim-jigs I have found and they increase my hook up ratio. The thick gauge hooks you have to set the hook like you're fishing any other jig but with the tour grade they hook themselves. 3/8oz with a rage chunk on the back = $$$

I fish them pre spawn through post spawn in and around light cover. Especially grass and tules.
