Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Freestyle Jig
Inspired by a Japanese jigging technique that uses 2 single-assist hooks, making it harder for a fish to throw the bait.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Trojan Good spoon I'm familiar with the butterfly jigging in saltwater and bought one of these to try. The quality looks good but had to see if the fish would eat it. I must say it works pretty good and I have caught a fair number of fish on it. I did notice I missed a number of fish, though would get hit a second time and could usually stick them. I went and upgraded the hooks to a larger size and have eliminated that problem. February 2, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Skipjack Great Scouting Lure! I use this lure to scout new spots when fishing offshore for snapper, grouper and live baits from my kayak. If anybody is home, the fish will hit this lure. The fish simply can't resist it! Sometimes the fish might not want to eat a piece of cut bait but because this lure flutters back into the fish's face, it will trigger an instant strike. There is no better jig on the market to scout holes offshore or catch small live baits in saltwater. I would give it 5 stars but the paint tends to shed after about 5 or 6 fish. But, I lose them to toothy critters right about the time the paint falls off anyways! HA! August 26, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kahuna Works great I caught 25 to 50 or more white bass (sandys) on 2 out 4 trips to the lake . Very seldom will they throw the spoon ! I would recommend a 1oz.. It cast farther & sinks faster ! I would rate it higher but the chrome came off on the 2nd. or 3rd. time I uesd it !!! July 30, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by bsmacks76 give it a try I used this jig on my last trip(first time trying it.) I caught a little bit of everything with it including a 40 lb. carp. The double hook end is great for those slow biters. Would recommend a rod with counter weight when "freestyle jigging" with this jig. Planning on buying it in a few more colors. July 18, 2008

A:Bass Pro shop
Details:Are they effective when drifting over structure or through rips searching for fish, or are they only effective once gamefish have been found and attracted?
A:It's one of the best deep vertical jigs I've ever used on white and hybrid striped bass in 15 to 35 feet of water. For clear water try natural colors or white. Works well for fish that are suspended or on the bottom. With a good depthfinder, you can watch it work in a school of fish.
A:The eye on the Jig
A:I use a small duo-lock snap and attach at the end away from the hooks. It might be interesting to try it the other way!

A:I saw a Shimano rep fishing this lure on tv. He recommend you tie to the ring w/ the hooks. This keeps the fish from using the weight of the lure to throw the hook. I'm not sure why they have the rear ring, I guess to add a third hook if wanted. The show was salt water w/ much larger lures, but I'm sure it will work the same.
