For those of you that read the California swim jig post, ran to tackle warehouse and completely wiped out their stock of 3/4 oz California swim jigs, this isn’t for you. But for everyone who ran there and found the baits were already sold out, I thought you might like to see a video that was sent to me yesterday afternoon.
Personally, I catch the majority of my fish on the 3/4 oz but the 1/2 oz has a time and place as well. Nationally, a lot of guys are using it with great success.
As I’ve said many times before, I don’t want all the videos on this site to be about me. I love when other anglers film great content. The timing was perfect when Dave from Florida sent me this video. He was wearing a head cam when a 9 lb bass completely inhaled his 1/2 oz Dirty Jigs swim jig. Its going to be an eye opening video for a lot of people. Not only do the baits work, they draw incredibly aggressive strikes, often from extremely pressured fish.
The good news is, at the time of this posting there are still a few 1/2 oz jigs available at tacklewarehouse. Here is the link: 1/2 oz California Swim Jigs
To all of Tacticalbassin’s readership, if you get a great catch on camera (on any bait) feel free to contact me via the “contact Us” link at the top of the page. If it seems like a good fit I’ll put it on the site. Tacticalbassin isn’t about me, its about the fisherman who come here to learn. I am all for user-generated content as I believe keeps the site relevant to cutting-edge trends around the country. I look forward to what you can come up with in the future.
Dave, thank you again for this submission. Great video, great fish, and perfect release.
