Buckeye Lures Mini Mop Jigs
Never had any luck with jigs until I put a swimbait trailer on one of these and tossed it out during the shoal bass pre-spawn. Even though the fish were probably targeting the trailers, I couldn't keep them off of it! I was pulling 4+ lbs. shoalies out of strong current with ease, and without any detriment to the hook. First time catching fish on a jig, and one of my best days of fishing yet!

Guy complaining about the hook bending...ITS A LIGHTWIRE HOOK!!! Its going to bend. Ive caught fish up to six pounds on these jigs but I am not using them around gnarly cover. I would say the cover I fish these around is 3/10 in terms of gnarlyness. Stuff like shade from docks and tree overhangs, rocky wing-dams, mostly isolated stuff that largemouth cannot bury themselves into effectively (no grass). Just like the original mop, great for hog hunting! Enough cannot be said about their hand tied skirt, it is unfortunate that rubberbands are still being used.

WORST JIG I EVER USED
This jig looked great on the shelf. First time using it, the hook bent on the first bass. I bent it back into place and it bent again on the next fish. I thought I had a bad jig, so i tied on a second one and same problem. I tried a third jig to confirm if it was an issue or not, and it was still the same problem of bent hook from a fish. All fish caught were 2 lbs or less, and I would hate to lose a bigger fish due to Buckeye's poor hook quality. I contacted Buckeye customer service about the issue and they dismissed my complaints.
I have never had ANY of my Strike King jig hooks bend on me unless I intentionally bent it to free it from a snag.
