Jig fishing lures come in all shapes and sizes, but the most common type is a lead head jig. This type has a lead head (or weight) at the top and a soft plastic body attached to the bottom. You can also find jigs made from metal, wood, or cork.
Jig lures come in many different shapes and sizes, including soft plastic bodies, metal jigs, and spinnerbaits. They are typically used in saltwater or freshwater fishing for bass, trout, salmon, and other game fish.
Jigs are most commonly used for bass fishing but can be effective for catching other types of fish as well. When using a jig, it’s important to make sure that you keep the line taunt so that the lure moves vigorously in the water. Strikes from fish can be quite violent, so it’s also important to use proper tackle and have a strong grip on your rod when fighting a big fish.
Unlike some other types of lures, jigs are not meant to be retrieved in a straight line; instead, they are supposed to be “jigged” up and down in order to create motion that will attract fish.
Some jigs have skirts or tails made from rubber or plastic fibers that help generate this lifelike action, while others rely more on the design of the head and weighting system to create movement.
Some anglers even customize their own jigs by adding attractive features like feathers, hair, or eyes.
