Hair jig fishing for bass is an art form. It’s a fishing technique you need to take time to learn the details of because you’re basically fishing the lure in the ether column of the water – the middle of nowhere. Hair jigs are perfect for targeting finicky schools of fish as well as suspended bass that are elevated in the lake. It mimics shad and other bait fish that are known to dart and dive in the water. 3 keys you need to pay attention to when hair jig fishing are the action of fishing rod, fishing line size, and what depth the fish are focused in . Watch the video for all the details and hopefully to became a better hair jig angler!!!!

Douchebags are real and in this video I ran inot a real one. Bass fishing is made worse by these kind of people adn fishing in general. Don’t be that guy. But in this case I won and found what he didn’t want me to find and scored a massive bag of largemouth bass because of it.
Within 3 days my little brother managed to catch his personal best bass and then break it with this 8lbs 15oz largemouth! What’s more is we caught back to back fish over 8lbs in 2 casts. This is one of those days when you know you have it dialed in. These bass were staging on a flat near a ledge and feeding up to spawn. There was a small group of fish but these were the biggest we caught. I was throwing a Sinking Bull Shad and my brother caught his trophy on a Gambler Lures JTK Hair Jig.

Had an absolutely killer day fishing a hair jig on a super cold day in Florida. Caught around 25lbs of bass targeting suspended pre spawn fish in deeper water. Used a very light or soft rod – a 7ft crankbait rod paired up with 12lbs flourocarbon and and a Shimano 6:3:1 speed reel. The key was to reel the bait upward while slightly moving the rod tip in a flicking motion. Then let the jig pendulum back to the bottom without feeding it line. Here’s all the stuff I was using:
