Did you catch anything, and if so how did you catch it? Yoyo the jigs on the edge of the rock piles slowly.
What were the sizes of the fish? 12-14” bass, 4 of them
Were there any issues at all during your test? None to report
Did this lure outperform other lures of the same type and/or style (please explain how it did or did not)?
All the lure mostly worked the same however the stealth jig was the best around the weedlines
These Jigs, in my opinion are designed for off shore techniques. If these jigs were made with lighter weights I could see a shallower application but they are not designed like that. UPDATE: Freedom Lures has many more products and sizes. Check them out at FreedomLures.com
I just usde a standard hoping motion (similar to stroking a jig)
These were ot really effective in the weeds to me.
Very well made construction with great paint jobs. The swivel action lets the jig head swing freely and aides for quick changing of hook sizes. Chip resistant paint and extra-large eyelet for easy tying.
These jigs are very durable these jigs went through a full 12 hour day and they took my abuse very well.
Reviewer’s Overall Thoughts
These Jigs are very well made and very good off shore structure jigs in summertime. Would like to see a lighter weighted version for shallower applications and more of finesse presentation. Overall the jigs perform very well
