Card's Catch - Choosing the Right Jig Trailer

There is a lot of talk about selecting the right jig.  Head design, weight, color, skirt material and more are all important things to consider to match your jig to the conditions. One thing that is just as important is picking the right soft plastic trailer.

Changing your trailer can greatly affect the action and also plays a big role in how fast (or slow) the jig will fall. All of these things make a difference at times and for me, the decision comes down to picking from three tried and true trailers.

Card's Catch - Potomac River Preview: Swim Jig Time

The Elite Series event on the Potomac River is starting soon and I am excited to get on the water. I have been there three times and each time the swim jig played a big role. The river really sets up perfectly for a swim jig. It is a great way to quickly cover water to find concentrations of fish and then once you find them, it's easy to slow down and pitch Senkos.

Hawk Talk - Jig Trailers for Early Spring

Jigs are highly adaptable lures that catch bass all year round.  They can be fished in both stained and clear water conditions, shallow and deep, and in most types of cover. Keeping a selection of jigs and trailers in my makes it easy to best match the conditions I find myself fishing in, but there are two specific jig trailers I rely on heavily during the early spring when the water temperature is still cold.
