Doug Stange introduces us to some terrific largemouth bass jigs as trailer lures.

    Outstanding! Learned something new…

    Great insight. In Fisherman is the best. Hands down.

    Mr. Stange, am I correct in assessing that the jig-tactics that this video's tenets pertain to are swim-jigging applications? It seems this methodology for embracing trailer selections is focused on horizontal, coverage oriented presentations as opposed to fishing the package as a drop-bait… or do you embrace jigs fished as drop-baits the same way?

    Doug i'm not much into bass fishing,have you tried it on walleyes?Do you that or a variation of it may work. Thanks Steve

    I've been seriously into this for three years now. I didn't fish a jig in the begining. now it is my favortie bait. I always fished chunks or craws as trailers, can't wait to try the swimbait

    I use soft plastic swimbaits on bass and walleye with great results. I even catch rainbow trout on swimbaits drop shotting using Kietech swing impact swimbaits.
    Berkley flatback swimbaits are awsome too along with yum and berkley hollow belly swimbaits. I go to these baits first because I target the most agressive fish first and then finesse when the bite is slow. In fact Douge Stanges strategy using these baits are right on as I learned. I listened and learned by him how effective they were and had to try the techniques myself. The rigging of a swimbait sideways at first seems odd but you cannot argue with good results. It is how I fish my swimbaits 1/3 of the time. Almost any type jig with a swimbait will work. I experimaent all the time with this type of trailer and my average size fish are larger now. All my swimbaits are scented of some sort or another as I believe in doing everything in my power to keep a biting fish to hold on longer giving you more time to set the hook.

    Most of you don't watch in fishermen tv shows. Doug has been fishing these baits for years and killing walleyes, bass, pike, muskies
