The Hogy Inshore System: Jigs


JIGS: Most jigs can be casted or jigged. Many anglers fish casting jigs with trebles and vertical jigs with single or “assist style hooks” where a single hook swings freely from the lure. Lure speed is an important factor to be aware of with jigs, your choice to fish fast (cover range of depths, draw reaction strike) or slow (imitative, sluggish fish, one important depth) will dictate which profile to use. Color is about either “attraction” or “matching the hatch.”

What To Look For:

1) Slow/Medium Topwater Presentation: Lightweight, narrow design. Will allow “hang time” in the strike zone at slower speeds without sinking. A properly “keeled” (balanced with a medium to low center of gravity) lure will swim best.

2) Long Range Fast Retrieve: Heavy, evenly balanced weight. Punches wind. It covers ground with long casts and speed.

3) Imitative: Natural size, shape, and color to match the hatch.

4) Slow Jigging: A profile that somehow offers action when the lure is sinking and retrieved at slow speeds. Allow time in the strike zone.

5) Fast Jigging: A profile that allows for fast descents and fast retrieves. Elicits FOMO reaction Strikes.

The Line Up:

Hogy Epoxy Jig Bait Imitator

The Epoxy Jig Lure: This lure literally does it all and is often the “If I only had just one lure” list of expert anglers.
