Weedless jigs are great for fishing around scattered weeds and timber. It’s amazing how many less snags you will get by using these weedless jigs.
Weedless Finesse Jigs
The weedless finesse jigs are very popular for using live bait, especially when targeting walleye and panfish around timber and weeds. The reason why the finesse jigs are more popular is that it allows your bait to slowly work it’s way through the cover and many fish will eat your bait as it slowly falls towards the bottom. It’s one of the better ways to fish around wood and scattered vegetation for walleye and panfish.
Bass jigs are also rigged weedless. Most anglers will use bass jigs around wood, but they also work great through scattered vegetation such as lily pads, reeds and other pockets of various vegetation.
Soft plastics also work very well on these weedless jigs. Work these baits around weed and scattered weeds and you should be able to catch largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye and even smallmouth bass too.
