Has anyone used the swing jig in place of the shakyhead? I've researched it and it seemed to be promising for worm fishing? Any tips or info would greatly be appreciated

I think they work really well for offshore fish that are holding close to the bottom. I typically use a creature bait or a craw with them, however, they work really well with just about anything you wanna put on there.

Works well with big floating worms like the Xcite Maximus.

It's closer to a football-head jig. Just drag it along the bottom or you can reel it faster just making occasional contact like deep cranking.

BTW, not sure which wash cycle I would use on it though. hammer

I prefer it to the shaky head, but there's several types of swing jigs as well. I even like to fish paddle tails on them.

Funny I should read this post as I have been wacking them on this bait! Several lake I fish have man made rock piles and I am amazed how well this bait come through them verses when I used to use squarebills. I caught a lot of fish last week just reeling through the rocks and rarely hung up. I have a tourney tomorrow with shallow rock piles and pretty excited about the swing jig for this tourney. Check out barlows tackle where they sell these swing heads in bulk and have a much better price on them. Good luck

Fish it like a crank bait. When it hits the bottom pause it for a split second.
