Lunker Lure Original Rattleback Jig
Not For Swimming
I have tried many jigs for flipping and swimming and find those with a line tie in the nose of the jig to be best for swimming, but some cross-eye jigs are good for swimming also.
This one is not the best swimmer because the single barrel rattle located just below the jighead causes it to hang in wood and rocky cover. Even though the jig head may clear the cover, the rattle is less forgiving. Double barrel rattles stay more out of the way than this single model.
The Booyah A-Jig, Baby Booyah, Strike King Bitsy, or even a football jig with recessed line tie do a better job sliding through cover.

I really like fishing jigs for a few reasons. I like the fact that a jig is so versatile, it can be fished in so many sutuations . I also like the fact that compaired to other lures jig are inxpensive. The best things I like about jigs it that I catch alot of basson jigs. With that said, this jig is one of the best I have ever used. The hook is super strong, I like the crossed eye, and it has loud rattles. I like the colors Black/Blue Flash, Pumkin Green Pepper, and crawdad.

Best jig ever!
Best jig ever used caught more fishes on this than any other bass jigs in my box. I have all sorts from Boyaah/Strike King/Chompers/Berkleys/Hartackle and others and this produces more fish. No issues with the rattle back, just trim trailer and you are set. Nothinfg wrong with improvising. Colors I have are black with red flash, saffire blue and best is black/blue/purple. Recently lost that to a pike. Heard a tap swipe from a pike and my lure was gone! Ordering a few more.

The Rattleback jig is perhaps the best jig made. It is the only one that I keep tied on at all times. I love the way the fixed rattle chamber holds my trailers. The hooks are also super sharp and very durable.. My go to bait when the bite gets tough! Works great for reaction bites on a quick retreive along grass lines.. Rattles work great for getting those bites in dingy and stained water.
