3 Jig Tricks For Bigger Summer Bass

Jig fishing is EASY in the Summer! Keep it simple, focus on key jig styles in key colors and fish with confidence. By simplifying your method, you'll have more confidence this Summer and you'll catch more fish. We've narrowed it down to 3 jigs to get you through all of your Summer bass fishing.

Anglers often get caught up in the hype of new lures and colors. Some of these new offerings make a huge difference and stay in the arsenal permanently, others simply distract you from your confidence baits for a time. Today we've narrowed our Summer options to a finesse jig, a pitchin' jig, and a flipping' jig. These 3 jigs and a handful of trailers will work in every situation you come across on the water.

Below is a breakdown of the jigs, including color recommendations. We've also included the jig trailers as well as the rods and reels we have confidence in for this fishing style. Don't let the dog days of Summer get you down, this is prime time to get out there and catch a bunch of bass!

How Jigs and Trailers Actually Move - UNDERWATER FOOTAGE!!

We have 8 of the most popular jig trailers and we're comparing the actions underwater. If you've ever wondered how they actually move when they're underwater or why one trailer seems to work better than another, this video is for you! There is so much information for bass anglers to glean when we head underwater and simply watch how our lures respond to how we fish them. We've included "dead action" trailers, aggressively kicking baits, and curly tail grubs so we get a complete comparison.

Of course we can't include every trailer on the market but we've done our best to select the most popular offerings that represent the various styles of jig trailer most commonly used. Whether you're a finesse jig guy or you prefer a heavy flipping jig, we've got trailers that fit your style. Every time we do an underwater video we're amazed by the outcome.

When viewed below the surface a bait like a Sweet Beaver that appeared to have no action at all, proves to have an incredible craw profile with a unique left to right drift as it falls. A grub like the Yamamoto Double Tail proves that it has an undulating action at virtually any speed, and the Paca Craw (one of the original "action" chunks but overlooked by most anglers today) gets 10 stars for amazing action when swam along the bottom!

What the baits for yourself and judge the bait trailers for your fishing style. Some anglers prefer a muted action, others want an aggressive kick at all speeds. Regardless of your fishing style, there is a trailer here for you. Below is a breakdown of the trailers (in order of appearance), the jigs, as well as some jig rod recommendations for Summer fishing.

Finesse Jigs - Get More Bites AND Catch Big Bass!

Why finesse jigs? When should you throw them? What are they for? Are they really that effective at catching quality and quantity at the same time? We're going to cover everything you need to know about Finesse jigs in this video!

The finesse jig shines throughout the Spring and early Summer. It produces consistently around cover, docks, and even around chunk rock. It has all the same fish catching qualities as a full size jig but it allows you to downsize your equipment and line to adapt to changing conditions. 
The next time you're on a shaky head, dropshot, or Texas Rig bite, consider throwing a finesse jig instead and you might be surprised at the number of big bass that had been lurking in front of you all along.
