Jig Fishing Buyer's Guide!

The Holiday Buyer's guide officially kicks off with this 2018/2019 Jig Fishing Buyer's Guide! For this video we combined the Buyer's Guide with actual jig fishing instruction focused on the Late Fall and Winter Jig bite. Whether you flip, pitch, swim, or stroke a jig, you're going to learn some tactics that will help your jig fishing.

We begin by breaking the Fall/Winter down with 4 jigs. We want you to analyze your lakes and decide which of the jigs best fits your style. After that we throw in 2 other "must have" jigs for year-round fishing.

Below you'll find a complete breakdown of the jigs, trailers, color selection, even rod/reel recommendations that you should take a look at. Regardless of your budget, there is something for everyone here and we've laid it out as simply as possible.

How To Skip Under Docks & Trees

These are the tricks you need to know to skip your jig wayyyy back under cover. If you're the guy fishing the edges of docks and fronts of trees, your fishing is about to change! Tim goes in depth with the methods he uses to consistently reach deep into the dark corners of overhead cover.

Skipping is an amazing way to catch bass that no one else is even fishing for. Once mastered, you can reach fish so far back in the shadows that they're rarely approached. The method is best learned with a spinning rod but ultimately can be done with virtually any tackle.

Below is a breakdown of the rods, reels, and lures that Tim is using to skip in this video:
