Production Midwest Finesse Jig Mold - Ned Rig Jig

If I had to pick my favorite mold from Do-It Molds, it would be the Midwest Finesse jig mold. In my opinion this is one of the most versatile jigs ever made. I use it for so many different applications. I pour hundreds of jigs with this mold every year. Now with the release of the production mold, my job easier and much more efficient. When I have a specific size I want (3/32,1/8,1/4), I can make a bunch at a time easily. 

Most of the bodies of water I fish are very clear. Because of this, I tend to use lighter jigs. This gives the bait a slower fall rate and lets the fish see it from a long way out while it is going to the bottom. The weight I use most is 3/32. 

The way I use this jig most is for its intended use. The Midwest Finesse or Ned rig is a fairly new technique that has exploded in popularity in the bass world in the past few years. This is for good reason. While it is the best “numbers” bait I have ever used, it still catches big fish. It is a very simple technique that everyone can catch bass on. The Midwest Finesse or Ned rig consists of a mushroom style jig head rigged with a small plastic, with a 2.5 to 3 inch stick bait being the most common. I use many different types of plastics on my Ned rig from craws to swimbaits. 

Midwest Finesse Black Hair Jig

Living near the Great Lakes, I have had the opportunity to fish some of the best smallmouth fisheries in the world. One of the best ways to fish these clear water smallmouth is with a hair jig. Hair jigs have been used for a super long time, and within the past ten years are making a big rebound in popularity. The hair jig consists of a jig head tied with hair, feathers, or fur.  

While there are many more ways to use the Midwest finesse jig, these are two of my favorites.
