BOOYAH Pigskin Jigs
A good basis jig that you can hook a soft bait
to and cast a mile. I like hooking a soft crawfish with half the tail cut off. Works well
in lilly pads

The Skirt on this jig provides great action. I purchased the tiger craw 3/8 ounce and i seen the fish dart at this lure! I was fishing in shallow clear water in late march.

Booyah's new pigskin jigs have won me over since I bought a few of them this spring. The round rubber skirt on the Pigskin jig uses thinner, shorter strands than their new A-Jig, but has twice as many strands to keep a full profile. The thinner strands really move in the water, giving motion to the jig even while deadsticking it. I like to add a trailer with bulky appendages (usually a Zoom Super Hog) and drag the whole thing across the bottom just below a snail's pace. The head shape on the Pigskin Jig avoids hanging up, so you don't have to jerk it loose and ruin your slow presentation. If you like jigs, I think you'll like this one.

Custom Quality Jig at Great Price
As a couple of other reviewers have mentioned, this jig has the best skirt of all the commercial jigs out there. It is packed with silicone threads and really remains 'fluffy' in the water.
*The powder coated head is very tough. It will withstand rock and pillar impact and the paint on the head will remain pristine.
*The EWG hook is very stout and will not bend or straighten-out. It also holds the point and remains razor sharp indefinately.
*The skirt is really a work of art and there isn't another comercial football jig that I've found that measures up to the Booyah Pigskin.
It fishes well on braid or heavy flourocarbon. I usually fish it on braid and match it with a nice trailer. Consider the Paca Chunk or RageTail craw trailers.
In North Central and East Texas, I've had the best luck with the 'Creek Craw' color and I try to match the trailer to the crawfish if I can spot some. The 'Creek Craw' color is very versitle with the brown-pumpkin coloration. You can pair it with a red tinted trailer or a brown tinted trailer and the jig picks up the color of the trailier - again, very versitle. This jig has produced several 'over the slot' fish at Lake Fork over the past two years. You will also catch decent 'unders', but dinks usually pass on this bait.
I have turned several guides and other tournament fishermen on to this jig. Since it's not widely available in the stores, not many people (or fish) have seen it.
**Also consider pairing it with the slip on rattles: Make sure to find the style that has flexible rattle holders so they won't interfere with the trailer. BassPro carries several...
