Jiggin' For Bass

Booyah  Boo Jig

Booyah Boo Jig

The jig that shouts "Eat me!" to any bass in proximity. Flat bottom with 18? rise, noisy double-barreled magnum rattle, slinky 50-strand Bio-Flex silicone skirt, Mustad? Ultra Point? black nickel hook.

The jig is always a great bass catcher. I like it at this time of year because it has a big profile when paired with a soft plastic trailer like a Strike King "rage tail" chunk trailer. Big females eating extra for the spring spawn love the big baits.
They work great twitched or hopped along the bottom near cover. Another great bass fishing trick is to hop them along places where the lake bottom drops off, where the bass can easily get to either shallower or deeper water fast.
When jig fishing for bass use lighter colors like chartreuse and white in stained water, and darker colors like black and blue when in clearer water. Once you hook up to a pig bass with a jig, you will be hooked too.
