Using Jigging Lures To Catch Bass

Author: Chester Hastings

Often times, a bass that will not strike a plug pulled quickly by its nose will strike vertically jigged lures. Jig heads and other jigging lures, such as spoons, tailspins, and vibrating blades will take fish that ignore plugs. This is especially true in deeper water.

Lead-head jigs use many different attractors to help entice fish. These include rubber or plastic skirts, feathers, hair, or rubber worms or grubs. Another effective enticement is the use of live bait on these lures. A popular attractor used by many bass anglers is a pork jig-and-pig or jig-and-eel. Many jig-heads have weed guards made of nylon bristle. Jigs are fished vertically, bottom bounced, or retrieved in a slow, steady motion.

Jigging spoons are made of metal. Some of these spoons have an unpainted, hammered finish. Other spoons come in a variety of colors and finishes. When bass are holding tight along cliff walls or timber, these lures are a good choice. It is not unusual to use jigging spoons in water up to 50 feet deep.

Tailspins, like the name implies, have a spinner on the tail of a heavy lead body. While vertical jigging is usually how these lures are used, a steady retrieve or bottom bouncing can prove to be quite effective.
