Let’s talk about a lure called the Original BiCO jig. If you have fished the Original BiCO jig, carry on, you already know what this jig is capable of. If you don’t know what an Original BiCO jig is, It’s time to make this jig part of your fishing arsenal. The Original BiCO jig is different. It’s not a run-of-the-mill football jig, arkey or a ball type jig, it’s a completely different animal.
What sets the BiCO apart?
The Original BiCO Jig is a 3/8 oz lead-free bass jig designed to target bass in shallow water, either as a flipping jig or a swim jig. It was created by Bill Quattrucci Jr., an accomplished bass fisherman from Massachusetts who has spent the majority of his life working in tackle shops and fishing tournaments.
Bill is a well-rounded fisherman, but on the water his number one weapon of choice is the jig. He started fishing them at a young age, but the more experienced he got, the more he realized there was room for improvement with the jigs he was fishing.
So, with the use of his father’s metal casting shop, Bill began designing a jig mold that was custom made to his exact specifications. After meticulous testing and multiple design tweaks, the Original BiCO Jig was finally born.
He was extremely happy with the bait, it had everything he wanted in a jig–starting with the Owner Hook. Bill says most people don’t realize the importance of having a razor sharp hook on a jig, and in his opinion Owner Hooks are as good as it gets.
The BiCO jig is far more weedless than the jigs he fished with in the past. He designed the head to have a point at the eyelet so it would easily slip through cover. That in conjunction with a much stiffer weedguard than most jigs makes the Original BiCO Jig incredibly weedless.
Add the fact that they are made in the USA and finished with one of the best paint jobs you will ever see on a jig and you have one of the better made baits ever produced. Bill also has a new jig design that he just released after extensive testing called the Baccarac Jig. See the pic below.
