Jackall Giron Jointed Panfish
I spent the money hoping this bait might save me from catching live blue gills for bass fishing. On my second cast I got hit by a two pounder and I was just trying to see how it moved in the water. It's a gorgeous bait. Slow sinking , runs true, and looks just like a gill swimming by. Water is still chilly so I'm betting this will produce even better when I swim it through a ball of fry being protected by a big old bass. I think it will be worth the money. I fish a small pond, skinny water, pretty stained. I was using the Orange belly version. Bought another one just in case I get hung up.

I purchased 4 of these in Bluegill, RT Ghost Bluegill, RT Orange Belly, and Sparkle SS Shad. Super realistic paint and they nice swimming action when fished correctly. If just casted and retrieved at a medium pace without working the rod they have a wide long gliding wobble, but if fished with a slight jerking action of the pole, man these things come alive and have a nice erratic action. I love how balanced they are and just sit on both trebles on the bottom, perfect for dropping them on a bedding bass's nest. My favorite hard plastic swimbait.

This thing swims like a fish!!! It is sweet. I am not a huge fan of the ugly brown gold color i got .. I don't must have ordered a wrong color maybe.
At any rate ... it takes a little geting used to to fish it. It doesn't sink, but kind of suspends. Caught a few bass on it already in the shallows.
Like i said ... it swims AWESOME when you get the hang of it ... but it's pricey. I get scared to throw it too close to any cover. I think i would have to dive in and retrieve it is I got snagged!

Not a natrual swimmer
Ok I admit that most panfish lures make me mad when I try to swim them slow and they sink like a rock. This lure is a little different, it can be fished slowly to make it look like a bluegill. The key is to use a little rod tip motion to give the lure subtle motion. I was surprised it seemed to not swim natrual if you just wanted to cast and retreive it. It requires some work but it can look real. It is not a small lure if you are trying to imitate young panfish.
