Choosing a productive swim jig requires careful analysis of its overall build. The head shape, hook size and gauge, color and skirt style, weed guard, and trailer all impact performance. GMAN does the work for us – he shares his go-to swim jig/trailer combo and rod setup for catching the most bass possible.
In addition to gear, Swindle advises on the importance of speed as a trigger and means to reduce short strikes. While he carries a variety of colors, he explains why white is his preferred much of the time, and especially in dark or dingy water.
