Single Pack: 6 Ct.
So there I am once again with the tip of my flippin stick 6 feet down in the water trying to dislodge my jig from the brush pile I was fishing. Despite my poking and prodding in the branchy pile of nastiness, I'm left with no choice but to cut my line and leave another jig behind as my temper begins to flare. To top it off, while I was poking around down there I broke one of the guides off my rod! Now I'm hot! After 5 minutes of cursing, growling and throwing my hands in the air like an angry Baboon (I think I even made up a few new words during my war dance), I finally settled down and the wheels in my head immediately started spinning. And that's when it happened…the idea for the 3.5" Texas-Rig Jig was born! As a matter of fact, the 3.5" Texas-Rig Jig also happens to be the very first bait released by PowerTeam Lures. Plus it was the bait that put PowerTeam Lures on the map (a little history there for ya). Anyway, so now I have a bait that has a jig appearance but I can Texas rig it (hence the name Texas-Rig Jig) so it allows me to fish the nastiest of brush piles without having to worry about getting my bait hung up! JOY! Double JOY! I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of spending more time fishing and less time trying to free up my baits. If you like flippin' and pichin' as much as I do, I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. Flip, Pitch and be Merry! ***It's a proven fact that reducing stress adds years to your life.
9 times out of 10, I rig this bad boy on a 4/0 EWG topped off with a tungsten weight. I peg the weight but leave about 3/8 inch between the peg and the hook, unless of course if I'm punching grass. In that case, I'll peg the weight tight to the hook. Fish it just like you would a standard jig and pitch it anywhere you please…even in jungles where you wouldn't even think about tossing a standard jig in.
