20# McCoys Mean Green or in a pinch, 20# big game. Prefer McCoys because of abrasion resistance and strength. I like a slow rolling swim jig. I prefer the 6th Sense Divine Swim Jig a very bad mother! Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Swim jigs, so versatile, but my favorite way is to cast them about 10ft past some deep trees and let them fall on a semi slack line. Also good just barely gliding slowly hopping them off the bottom. Swimming through grass and shallow brush

Hack attack swim jig
Trailer or your choice

30-50lb Braid mainline to 6ft of 17lb pline cxx leader

I like using Dirty Jigs swim jigs, they have good color options, different hook size for the type of fishing you need to do for different depth, cover etc. I use 15-20# seaguar invisx flouro depending on the swim jig weight, hook size and cover you're fishing it around. Throw a LFT magic shad as a trailer for a change of pace from the regular boot-tail, or a rage tail menace.

Many different ways to fish them. Experiment to see what the fish want on any given day.

PS, they skip under docks well too.

I throw my swim jigs on 15lb mono Trilene Big Game. LFT makes awesome shad like profile swimbaits I often use as a trailer on my swim jig.

I've been catching a lot on a brown bitsy bug with watermelon seed zoom swimmin chunk trailer, 17lb vicious fluro. I've mostly caught em working through laydowns and swimmin around moss.

Arkie has a platinum swim jig that comes with a nice trailer, I caught a 5lber on one back in September, swimmin around hydrilla.

What trailers do you feel match up best with the jigs for a shad imitation and bluegill imitation?

Lethal Weapon Lures swim jigs are awesome. They have a light wire and a heavy wire version and they are very well made. I fish the light wire one on either 15lb braid/10lb fluoro leader or straight 8lb fluoro with some kind of double tail craw trailer. I drag it or slow roll it in up 10ft of water. It comes through cover really well and it will catch fish.
