My favorite all-time bass fishing lure is a football jig. The reason? They catch big fish, small fish and everything in-between. I get asked a lot about my favorite jig and to be honest, any of them work. Different brands have various characteristics that might catch your eye, but in the end, a football jig is probably something you are going to lose in the rocks. If you want to buy expensive high end jigs, then go for it. If you like to buy cheap jigs, then guess what, they’ll last just as long. Chances are, you will lose a few each trip anyway.

I wanted to show a video where I catch numerous fish off one spot. In summer when the largemouth and smallmouth are schooled up, it is very easy to load your boat in just a few casts. Altogether, I caught 10 bass off one spot with one jig. The smallmouth were about 2-pounds each, while the largemouth ranged from 2-pounds to nearly 5-pounds. So you’re wondering, what lake is this? It doesn’t matter…right now you should be fishing football jigs on any rocks you can find whether it be Newman Lake, Long Lake, Lake Coeur d’Alene, Hayden Lake, or your own local lake or river.
