Make Bass Jigs That Catch More Fish

Make bass jigs that catch more fishToday’s blog post will share tips to help you make bass jigs that catch more fish.

It’s no secret that jigs are a proven big bass catcher. They just plain work!

But, as with any other lure, certain modifications or tweaks can make them work even better than they do right out of the package. So today we’ll show you some of those tips so you can make your own jigs work better, or modify jigs that you’ve made or bought in the past to catch more fish.

Keep in mind that conditions on any lake can change daily, or even from hour to hour, so what works today might not even get a bite tomorrow. But having a good selection of jigs in varying colors, sizes and styles can help you overcome those times when the bite slows down.

So what does it take to make bass jigs that catch more fish?

Really, it only takes a handful of your homemade bass jigs and a few very basic tools. First, you’ll need some freshly made bass jigs. If you haven’t started making your own jigs yet, then grab some new ones that you bought.

Thinning Shears for Trimming Your Jig SkirtNext, you’ll need a good pair of scissors. They don’t have to be expensive. They just need to be nice and sharp! You’ll also need a pair of cheap thinning shears. These are like the ones that are used to thin a person’s hair at the barber shop or salon. These can be bought inexpensively at your local department store, usually in the health and beauty section.

Once you have those items, you’re ready to start tweaking your jigs!

Let’s make it clear that there are many ways you can modify your jigs. You don’t necessarily have to follow anyone’s recommendations. You can definitely think outside the box with this. The tips in the video below, though, are offered by someone who has proven them during their own fishing trips, over many years. They work for him. So it’s pretty likely they will work for you, too.

Buzz cut finesse skirtAnother thing to keep in mind is that you can also purchase skirts that are semi-tailored or tweaked already. The finesse jig that was created in the video can also be made by using a skirt that’s already cut the very same way right from the factory.

Using these skirts will save you a ton of trial and error. It will also eliminate the possibility of you accidentally destroying any of your good jig skirts while you try to learn to trim them yourself.

On the other hand, though, if you learn to make your own skirt modifications, the sky is the limit when it comes to the number of different ways you can customize your jigs.

It’s entirely up to you! But no matter which you choose, you’ll be well on your way to catching more fish on your jigs. And there’s never anything wrong with that 🙂
