Hair jigs are one of the most deadly bait's ever created for catching largemouth and smallmouth bass, and they are equally effective on spotted bass, crappie and walleye. Each one of our hair jigs is made using only the finest quality hair from Coyote, Bobcat, bear, moose, deer and elk. There is no substitute for a real hair jig in my opinion, they have a different look and action in the water and hair jigs rule in cold water. Our Smallmouth Special jig is tied on a round ball head jig with a super sharp Gamagatsu hook and the head is colored using Pro Tec powder paint that is baked on for increased durability. This is the perfect jig for catching big smallmouth bass in my opinion. Pro tip: For fishing smaller hair jigs, say, from 1/8 to 1/4 oz. I like to fish them on a 6' 9" medium light action spinning rod and 6 pound Gamma fluorocarbon or 6 pound Ande monofilament line. Once the jig touches bottom, simply shake the jig or lift & drop it using small subtle lifts, don't get real crazy with it. I like to keep my rod tip high and just kinda finesse it slowly along the bottom. Big smallies will absolutely slam this bait. Some guys like to add a small grub as a trailer and that also works well.
