Swim jigs are a great way to cover water right now if fish have just started to move up onto the bank or are still in that cruising pattern around isolated pockets in grass or weeds after these last set of fronts. A great tool for the job is Keitech’s Model III Swim jig paired with a Fat Swing Impact or Zoom’s Boot Tail Fluke (if you’re imitating longer bait species), and because you can rig it completely weedless you can fish it more effectively through key areas without getting snagged.
