Fishing a cone head-style jig
Cone head jigs are made to fish weedy cover, the cone-shaped jig moving through vegetation without getting hung up. These jigs can be worked through or over the top of weed beds to catch bass waiting to ambush prey. For probing the bottom of weed beds, you will want a jig with a heavy weed guard and an extra strong hook to minimize getting hung up on weeds. Match your jig with a crayfish trailer to imitate a crayfish moving around the bottom. For swimming over the top of weed beds, you will want to have a swim jig with streamlined skirt, light weed guard, and a light wire hook. Pairing a swim jig with a paddle tail swimbait is a must for imitating shad and other baitfish. The Jackall Rhythm Wave is ideal for this application and produces a hard thumping action that will attract bass looking to ambush prey emerging from the weeds.
