Rated 4 out of 5 by NWIAfishing Nice Jig
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...

This jig is good to use in muddy water. I use the darker colors for muddier water. I gave it four stars because it I think it hangs up easier than other jigs. ( I've lost two, and I am on my third one.)
