Bass, Pick Your Poison: New Weedless Jig Offers Versatility and Great Hooking

0 Comments
Here in my home state of Wisconsin, it was one of the hottest summers on record. These extended periods of heat effected some fisheries in a negative way and some in a positive way. One of the few fish that reacted favorably was the Bass. For the Bass fisherman, both largemouth and smallmouth, many would agree that it was a banner year. The warmer than normal lake temps statewide had both species about as active as I have ever seen them.

If you fish salt water or follow the salt water beat, you have probably heard of Butterfly Jigging. Right now it may be the hottest thing out there to take a variety of species of salt water game fish.

Maybe it's about bragging rights and the camaraderie among a group of anglers less concerned with the final results than the common experience. And for the sheer pleasure of fishing, it's hard to beat the homely, hard-fighting sheepshead.

Sometimes I don’t know if it’s a blessing or a curse. Tackle tinkering. It’s great to be able to make a lure that’s just a little different than what you can buy off the shelves.

By and large, anglers are a practical bunch.

It only makes sense that more anglers are
