Bladed Swim Jigs are kind of a hybrid between a jig and a spinnerbait. It’s amazing that is has taken as long as it has for someone to invent this lure, but we are glad that they finally did. This lure works very well for bass and northern pike. A slow and steady retrieve is all you need to entire some bites from a variety of fish. Most anglers will fish these baits in the shallow to medium depth ranges around all types of cover.
Rod, Reel & Line
Bladed Swim Jigs are usually fished with a baitcaster with heavier line and a heavier rod. 14 to 30 pound test line is the norm, although, you may go lighter or heavier depending on the situation. There are more and more of these jigs coming on the market, so that gives anglers more options. There are now finesse-style bladed swim jigs that work for a variety of panfish and bass. As you go smaller, the spinning gear with lighter line will do the trick.
