Bladed swim jigs work great for smallmouth bass. These lures are a hybrid between a bass jig and a spinnerbait. Just cast them out and wind them in with a slow and steady retrieve. You can count them down to various depths to work different parts of the water column.
Best Trailers for Bladed Swim Jigs
Minnows work great as a trailer bait on bladed swim jigs. Go with the smaller 3 to 4 inch minnows with a slender tail. This will give the bait a little more action with more of a baitfish look to it which will help you catch more fish.
Finesse Worms look good on a bladed swim jig. Whether you use the ones with a small curly tail or just a slender straight tail, the worms provide some additional action with the vibrating swim jig.
Ringworms are a type of finesse worm that look great on the back of a bladed swim jig. These 4 inch worms provide some awesome action with the action of the bladed swim jig.
Small Swimbaits, like the Sizmic Grub featured to the left, are awesome trailers on the back of a bladed swim jig. Fish them slow with a steady retrieve and the paddles will create a lot of additional action.
