Many fishermen do not use jigs as bass baits because they have never taken just a little time to learn how to use them. If you are ready and willing to try bass jigs fishing, go for it! People always ask which season would be the best for using jigs. No season is wrong for using bass jigs. Due to the facts that jigs are practical in those delicate situations when bass are hard to catch or when slow presentation is of high importance, fishermen often think that jigs are strictly cold-water baits. However, jigs bass fishing will give you fabulous fishing experience even in spring and summer.

It is important to learn to retrieve bass jigs properly. These baits are worked slowly across structures and objects that might hold fish. There is a possibility to cast a jig, let it settle for a few moments so that bass snatches up the bait exactly where it lies. However, the great majority of bites will occur when jigs are falling, either after a little jigging by the fisherman or on the initial cast. Imagine how a cat would respond when a ball of string is being twitched across the floor. A cat will hide behind a furniture waiting to pounce the ball. Bass responds to a jig in a similar manner. Unlike with other baits, when you are bass fishing with jigs, you should not cast and retrieve them quickly. In fact, the power of bass jigs is their ability to be hoped and twitched along slowly while tempting the bass fish into taking the bait.

Jigs are great baits for going into heavy brush, fearsome-looking places. Cast a bait, retrieve it slowly and alert for strikes. Jigs are very snag-proof, so if you unfortunately get into trouble, it is better to jiggle the bait free than to attempt to jerk it loose.
