Here’s a look at some of new 2016 bass jigs lauched at ICAST.
Radar Lures R-1 Jigs
This swim jig has a versatile head design featuring a large eye. The R-1 comes in 5 colors and is offered in 1/4 ounce, 3/8 ounce and 1/2 ounce sizes.
Lunkerhunt Custom Shakey Heads
Here’s a unique self standing shakey head jig.
Lunkerhunt LP Naturals Swim Jig
Great attention to detail caught our eye on this jig. It features a wire skirt holder to extend skirt life, a 60 degree eye to pull the jig upward in the water column and minimize cover hookups, and a lifelike skirt with matching head.
Strike King Swinging Swim Jig
A free swinging hook should enhance trailer action while reducing the leverage fighting fish can place on the lure.
Radar Lures Twist’d Jigs
The horizontal-rigged skirt on this stand up football shakey head has a distinct look in the water. We also liked the flexibility to add a soft plastic of your choosing to the jig.
Freedom Tackle Corp. Live Action Brush-less Jig
The screw lock rigged on the offset worm hook makes this a weedless design without the need for a brush guard. This should result in cleaner grass fishing while providing a full jig profile.
Z Man Project Z Swim Jig
This swim jig comes in 1/4 ounce and 3/8 sizes and is designed to run true and stable at all retrieve speeds. We like the 6 skirt colors and prominant head eye.
Advantage Bait Company Heavy Mat Jig
This jig has a heavy Gamakatsu hook and a wired trailer keeper that really locked the trailer on tight. Upgrades like dual rattles and weed guard, and a skirt with built-in trailers make for capable looking heavy grass jig.
Radar Lures Radar Jig
This jig is touted for fishing clean around all cover types. We are looking forward to fishing it as a shakey head alternative in our favorite grass lakes.
