Why Upsize Bladed Jig Trailers?

It’s a fact that soft plastic trailers are a key component to the overall appeal of bladed/vibrating jigs, but fewer anglers are aware that they can also have a big impact on hookup ratios. Pro bass angler Davy Hite explains how the free-swinging attributes of bladed jigs work aginst the unique way in which bass feed (vacuum/negative pressure). Hite goes on to share his time-tested theory on how bulkier plastics help draw the entire bait deeper in the bass’s mouth and improve hookup and retention.
