Title: Swim Jigs
Post by: MarkusBett18 on September 27, 2017, 04:55:36 PM
I recently bought some stuff cool from TW. I bought 2 Swim Jigs with with New trailers I've found. What do you guys think about this setup!

Looks good to me! You should be able to catch some fish with those.

They should work well. I have had great success with the Siebert Outdoors Dredge Brush Jig with bluegill skirt colors in ponds. No trailer at all just hopping them off the bottom made for some really fun strikes.  ;) It became one of my favorite skirt patterns.

The cane thumper is the trailer I use occasionally with fairly good results.  Should work good.
Let us know.

and once you get a bigger tackle box like Oldfart said, make sure to get yourself a few different weights.

A 1/2 oz swim jig is nice because you can swim it slower and get it lower in the water column. You never know what the fish are in the mood for.

Don't worry, being on here we can find endless ways to spend your money on the monkey.  ~roflmao ~roflmao ~roflmao ~roflmao
You may have to ignore a lot of it or you'll go broke.  :help:

Awesome lake. Whereabouts on Winni are you fishing? If you are going out in a boat do you know where you're launching from?

I believe I'm going to be fishing all of the boats and docks in Paugus Bay. And no boat, just a fishing kayak near docks and boats etc.

I don't completely know though if we still are going to winni though!

Ah, Paugus Bay. Have some fond memories of fishing in there.  :) 

If you do go make sure you swim those jigs along the sides of the docks and try and bump them into the dock posts and pause the bait for a second or two before you start swimming it again. The fish should be feeding good up there about now so you should do alright on those swim jigs.  Any moving baits really. No matter what lure you end up fishing you might have to experiment a little with depth and retrieve speed but if you can get that dialed in you should have a pretty good day.  ~sun

I'll be rooting for you no matter what. Let us know how you make out.  ~fff ~fff v~
