How Selecting the Right Jig Can Help You Catch Bass


Do you want to start bringing in more bass during your fishing outings? The key to success might be to select the right jigs for the job. Believe it or not, simply switching up the jigs you’re using now could yield much better results and make your fishing trips a lot more fun. Here are a few of the ways in which selecting the right jig can help you catch bass.

Test out different-colored jigs.

There are a lot of fishermen who stick with the classic colors when they’re using jigs. They tend to use black and blue jigs and don’t venture very far off that path. But the truth is that you can increase the number of bass that you’re able to bring in by going with something a little brighter. Test out some of the different-colored jigs that are available to you to see what kinds of results you get with them.

Watch how much action jig trailers provide.

Many fishermen consider trailers to be the backbones of jigs. They’ll tell you that it’s important for you to pick jigs with the right trailers based on the situation. For example, it’s usually a good idea to go with jig trailers that don’t offer much action when the water you’re fishing in is on the colder side. Bass seem to flock towards these types of jigs in cooler conditions. But it’s usually a good idea to take the opposite approach when water is on the warmer side and use jig trailers that offer more action. That could increase your chances of bringing in more bass.

Keep a close eye on jigs in the water.

One of the only downsides of using jigs is that there are inevitably going to be times when bass bite on them without you feeling it. Because of this, it’s essential for you to keep a very close eye on jigs when they’re in the water, especially when you first cast them out. Otherwise, you could catch a bass almost right away and not realize it until it’s too late. By keeping your eyes peeled, you’ll be able to see a bass attack your jig so that you can get to work on reeling it in.

Jigs are something that every fisherman needs to have in their tackle box. Stock yours with jigs from Slater’s Jigs. Call us at 800-748-8711 today to order any of the jigs you see on our site.
