Ok guys I'm on a jig kick lately after not fishing a jig for a few years. What's a good rattling jig for flipping brush. Not like timber or stumps but actual brush like a lay down willow tree. I've been using a Santone Rattling Jig lately. I love the skirt colors and hook but man they hang up constantly. Any suggestions on what to try?

With the V&M swim jig I add a Zoom speed craw. Pinch off the first section to shorten it then thread it on. That makes it more compact for skipping.

The V&M swim jig and the MPack jig both are designed so the line tie does not stick out beyond the head of the jig and I think that helps keep them from getting hung up as much as other jigs.

A awesome little jig is a bitsy bug jig by Strike King. I’ve won so many tournaments and caught so many bass on them
And followed behind other people fishing a area and was catching them while the other boat wasn’t catching anything..

I use buckeye jigs because the weed guard sits right on the hook and prevents the jig from hanging on small limbs often. There are others that also have the same feature but weed guard angle and hook angle are the two most important things to preventing hang ups.

Believe me, if you are wanting to fish willows, the V&M swim jig works perfect for that. I use other style jigs for pitching to stumps and other types of cover including docks, but for brush I use the V&M swim jig with a Zoom speed craw trailer.

Buy one or two and try them out. I think you will like them.
