Size indicator

bass fishing swimbait head

This is one of the coolest and smartest things I’ve seen done in a long time when it comes to terminal tackle. Eagle Claw actually incorporated into the mold a size indicator on the side of the jighead. One of the more frustrating things with this kind of fishing is finally finding the perfect size jighead and not being able to remember what size it was when going to restock.

I’ve done this a lot over the years with different jigs and jigheads. I’ll take the tackle out of its original packaging then combine 3 or 4 packs together in my box. When it comes time to order more, I can’t remember if it’s a 3/16- or 1/4-ounce, for instance.

This doesn’t sound like much of a difference, but once you get dialed in with a swimbait head like this, you get a feel for how long to let it fall and how slow to reel it and changing the size up even just a little bit throws all that off. Well with the raised size indicator on the side of these jigheads, I no longer have to play the guessing game.
