WackyOjig

  Several Midwest finesse angler have alerted us to a wacky jig created by David Bond of Necasie, Mississippi, and proprietor of WackOjig.

At times Midwest finesse anglers have found that a wacky rig is the most effective way to present soft-plastic baits to largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass. But these anglers are always consternated by how difficult it is to keep wacky rigged soft-plastic baits affixed to a hook. Normally, the lifecycle of wacky rigged Senko-style bait is rarely more than two or three black bass donnybrooks. And there are times aplenty when one donnybrook is all that it can withstand.

Bond, however, had created a jig that enables a soft-plastic bait withstand 10 or more donnybrooks, and if an angler opts for an ElaZtech bait manufactured by Z-Man Fishing Products, he might be able tangle with 30 or more black bass before the bait is torn to smithereens.


Bond's jig is endowed with a metal ring that is molded onto its head, and a Senko-style bait is inserted into that ring. The jig also sports a hook guard and a 4/0 Mustad black nickel hook.  It is manufactured  in three sizes: 3/16-, 1/14- and 5/16-ounces.


For most Midwest finesse applications, these jigs are too heavy and the hooks are too big. Therefore, dyed-in-the-wool finesse anglers are hoping that Bond will find a way to manufacture some 1/16- and 3/32-ounce WackOjig with small hooks.

But these three sizes of jigs suit the needs of nearly every power angler.

It is available in five colors. A package of three retails for $6.49 For more information, please examine this WackOjig's  site: http://www.wackojig.com/

Endnotes:




(1) In a July 25 e-mail, David Bond said: "We have had  several requests for lighter jigs and lead free ones. We have plans in the near future to carry a "R92 Series" which is significantly lighter than lead. R92 is a pewter alloy (92% tin, 8% antimony). When the current 3/16-ounce jig is poured with R92 pewter, it  will be close to a 3/32-ouncer. We are  still in R&D stages.

"Check out the post we put up on our Facebook page from July 24. We added a little more information  there."
