Rated 5 out of 5 by bassmaster1997 Great jig!! this jig is great went out today for an hour and a half and caught 2 bass which is not bad considering that i caught the most on the boat and i live in NY and the water is extremely cold and the bass are not active but great jig! I got this in a black blue color with a black and blue 3" berkley powerbait chigger craw. Overall buy this lure!! April 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by bassenman1 KVD Swimjig Never tried a swim jig though I have used jig as a swim jig. I like the way this cut threw the water and weeds without hanging up much, Also with a Rage Tail Craw trailer it has all kinds of action. Steady retrieve or popping it once in a while. Going to get me some more for sure. April 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by DTfisher Works great First, I followed KVD's example of how to use these jigs. The way he said to fish it is to put a trailer on (I used a Rage baby Craw) and keep your rod tip up (around 10 O'clock). This will keep it higher in the zone. Then, when you come across a ledge or anything that has a dip, drop your rod down to about 9 O'clock. First two casts doing this got me two catches. I got bit about 5 more times after this (which I believe it was the color issue). In all, I had a great time to work with this and it has been a very consistent jig to compliment a regular jig, Carolina Rig, or Texposed baits. Gives the bass a different look and more bites.

Details:what color trailer would be close to a bluegill? and is a single tail grub best for it?
A:Paca chunk has several colors that work really well with bluegill. I like green pumpkin candy and okeechobee craw. Rage tail craws are a little bigger and work well also. Single tail grubs and baby fluke will work too.

A:Strike King baby Craw is what I use for a trailer and use Green Pumpkin but there is the Okeechobee Craw color that can also work. In all, I've found the Strike King craw colors are the best for this jig.
A:Whatever colors are in the skirt such as blue green pumpkin,purple etc.

A:I use a strike king baby rage craw in summer craw color.
A:Black and blue or green pumkin
Details:I have tried swimming this bait, jigging it, and everything else I can think of, but I can't seem to get any bites. I got the bluegill color in the 3/8 oz. I have no idea why this isn't working for me. KVD lures have always produced for me, especially the spinnerbait, in the firetiger.
A:The easy way is to fish with someone who knows how to use jigs. They can be fished a lot of different ways and different trailers, small vs large or curly vs craws, change everything. Slight twitching causes the skirt to flare on slow retrieves. Short hope on the bottom also works.
A:I use the same color here in WI in ultra clear water and add yamamoto hula grubs in smoke and red and watermelon and constantly throw in weed beds and slow roll them back or cast and fast swim back on surface. Have caught bass and pike this way.

A:Add a trailer, throw when water is too clear for a spinnerbait. Otherwise keep using your spinnerbaits.
A:Try to bounce the lure off the bottem and let it sit, then bounce it and jig it up about 1 to 2 feet then let is sink. works for me. good luck
A:Make sure you use a color that matches the bait fish in the lake or pond. I fish a private lake and they eat the blue gills so I put a tariler on as well to the color of the bluegills best time to use them is overcast and windy days. They are also great night fishing lures
A:i would think the 1/2 oz would work well in a current
Details:This jig looks great but is there a brownish red one available. Those always work good as a jig color.

A:there is no red one. But it's easy enough to switch the skirt.
