I’m late to the game, but I’m sure you have heard about the wobble head jig also referred to as a swing head jig. My first encounter with these swing head jigs was during my recent trip to Mexico. I caught my biggest bass and personal best bass on a wobble head jig. The Bass weighed in at 8 pounds and 13 ounces.
If you have not read about my trip to Mexico, you really should. It was one of the best fishing trips I have ever been on. Please indulge me and read my report here.
Swing Head Jigs
I’m a man on a mission. I had so much success with the wobble head in Mexico, that I have made it my mission to master the technique on my home waters. To me, that means downsizing and looking for Swing Head Jigs that are made of Tungsten. Lead is banned in my state, and I am OK with that.
A 5-minute google search and I was on my way to finding exactly what I needed. Have you ever heard of the company called Jig Shack? They sell custom painted lures and Tungsten products. Jig Shack sells the wobble heads in 5 different sizes ranging from 1/4 to 1 ounce, and two colors, Black and Green Pumpkin. The best part? They don’t come with hooks. I can choose what weight I want and what size hook I want to match the size of the bait I want to throw.
Check out the hook keeper. I really like the idea of being able to switch out whatever hook I want to use.
Below is a comparison of a 3/4 ounce lead swing head jig next to a 3/4 ounce Tungsten jig head. It looks to be about 25% smaller.
So I do have a question, after adding the hook, what is the recommended way to close the space? Just crimp it together until they touch? Twist it around? Leave some comments below or please contact me here.
