Bass Team Tackle Company of Warrenton, Missouri, recently introduced their Wacky Jig to the angling world. And their 1/16- and 3/32-ounce models look as if they will work well when Midwest Finesse anglers need to wield a wacky rigged soft-plastic worm or Senko-style bait.
Their 1/16- and 3/32-ounce Wacky Jigs are available in two Gamakatsu hook sizes: No. 2 and No. 6. The hooks have a wide-gap and 35-degree eye.
They have a weed- or hook-guard model and one devoid of a hook-guard.
They are available in three colors: black, watermelon red, and green pumpkin.
A package of five hook-guard models retails from $3.25, and a package of five jigs without the hook-guard sells for $3.00. They can be purchased online at this link: http://bassteamtackle.com/Terminal_Tackle.php.
