''The skirts of these jigs are the key to their action. You can work one dead slow and still have a great, realistic profile. It’s a perfect imitation of a slow-moving crawfish.'' Alton Jones, 2008 Bassmaster Classic® Champion
When you want to play ball with some oversized bass, here’s the other half of Alton’s Classic-winning combination. The Booyah® Pigskin™ Jig's football head has a durable powder-coat finish and is backed by an extra-long 60-strand hand-tied skirt made of fine round rubber and silicone strands. On the move or at rest, the Pigskin Jig's body profile is meaty and the action is incredible! Premium Gamakatsu® hook with Plasti-Keeper™.

Ok so... hangs up fairly easily, but in a boat it is fine. great feel on the bottom, bass like the feel in their mouth, i dont know why they will hold on forever. paint chips off, but fish dont see it. overall good

I love Booyah jigs. I always have. And I'm sure you'll love them too once you try them. Make sure you add a jig trailer preferebly Chompers, Powerbait, or Net Bait. There all good :)

This jig is great, I have caught a lot of big fish with it. Just cast it in front of some underwater structure and you prepare for a hit on the fall. The two negative things I have to say about this jig is that the paint gets chipped off of the jig head pretty quickly and while I was fishing, the weed guards fell off and I started getting snagged on everything. Other than that, though, it is a good jig to use.

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...

Fish it in rocks and dropoffs. anywhere else it will jam in a branch or get tangled in weeds. Trust me though, on rockpiles, it is KILLER on smallmouth!. for a trailer, go with yum crawpapi or yamamoto medium fat craw. I like the craw papi best, but the yamamoto is more versatile.
Either heavy (20LB) flourocarbon or braid. Braid works well if fishing in cover, flouro in open/clear water. I usually fish these jigs on 50-65 LB braid in all conditions, the bass don't seem to mind the braid! ;)
I use superline like crystal fireline. When you're fishing heavy cover you need stronger line that is very resistant to abrasion. I use 14lb fireline for my flippin' and pitchin'. Fireline is just one of the superlines you can use though.
