Best Bass Jig Options Today

best bass jigsFaced with a choice of only one lure style to use for bass, many anglers would opt for their best bass jig. And for good reason. The best Bass jigs are versatile and ever so deadly weapons for largemouths, smallies, and spots in a wide variety of situations. You can swim, drag, punch, twitch, flip, pitch, shake, and shoot 'em — and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, jig strokes are limited only by your imagination.

Recent years have witnessed a rise in specialty jigs aimed at specific presentations, such as finessing, punching through weedy canopies, shaking, dragging, and swimming. All of which leads to arguably the widest jighead selection ever seen in the history of fishing. In honor of the effective yet sometimes overlooked jig, we collected 10 top heads, which shine in a variety of situations.

To be fair, the best bass jig options are nearly countless. There are so many standount jig-makers, we simply couldn't squeeze in every brand. The same goes for style, though we did cover a wide spectrum of designs. That being said, let's wade in to the wonderful world of bass-catching jigs.
