Wanted to spread a little encouragement to those who may be new or reluctant to jig fish. I dumbed into a pattern recently and its changed my fishing for the better. I've always wanted to jig fish but never felt ANY confidence in the presentation. Well this Fall I tied a couple on and that's all I threw. Black, green, white, PB&J, football, swim and pitching jigs. The fish let me know what works and I now have a TON of confidence in jigs. I started out spending $75 @ TackleWarehouse: a large selection of colors, sizes and trailers.

I've been SLAYING them on white swim jigs. As the bait fish move to the backs of creeks and coves they're hammering the swim jig. I think the swim jig is a good entry point for newbies like myself and right now its a lethal lure for me. They like them light and white and it reminds me of senko fishing but with a little duller bite detection and faster bait movement.

I have caught bigger fish with a football jig, but those bites just felt like moss. Best advice I've gotten is swing when you think something feels different, swinging is free. I've had so much fun this fall I feel like a kid again. Commit to throwing a jig and you'll be rewarded eventually. Try a smallish white one and see what happens!

I have never had luck with jigs myself even though I have quite a few. I will certainly give them another try,
