Snap Jig

Combining the plastic V-shaped tail of a jigging minnow with a lead-head jig, this novel bait is sure to catch the interest of anglers who fish hardwater-style jigging minnows in open water for bass, walleye, pike and lakers. It promises to excel for casting, strolling and snap-jigging, as well as for vertical presentations. Available in three sizes and eight colours, the Snap Jig also sports a secondary eye for stinger hooks or blades.
