Anybody ever use a brush hawg as a jig trailer. I've been playing around in the swimming pool and it looks pretty darn good.

That's a big trailer. I typically like stuff that's more compact, but I'm sure it will work.

Baby brush hog on a finesse jig is very effective! I typically pinch off the section right in front of the first legs(arms?) and that leaves the legs to shimmy as it falls.

Just remember a bass can eat prey 1/3 it's size so a big brush hog on a full size or football jig might get the hawgs!

Yes many people use brush hogs as trailers. Baby hogs and full size both.
I was turned on to it by a local guide. I use a assortment of tye on's but nothing wrong with using a brush hog.

Full size hog on a football jig. Never use a baby.
