Swing head baits

Recommended Posts

Ok. Time to learn the new swing head. Got my order in from swing oil baits. Look awesome. Thinking of going out and only using it to keep myself from switching.

Now. Weight and what are your favorite baits to drag with it?

x2 on the Structure Bug and Mega Bug and don't rule out a craw tube and a local Company called CM Lures makes a floating craw that works well too.

Are the Jika rig and the swing head almost the same thing? What is the advantage of both?

Jika rig is more like a Texas rig, only the weight hangs below front of the bait instead of riding the line in front of it.

Here is a video of the Jika Rig, take note of the underwater action at around the 2:15 mark:

The swing head, aka Biffle Hard head, is used more like a crank bait where you put a creature/beaver/craw bait on the hook and cast it out and reel it in.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles. -- Doug Larson

Both allow the hook and plastic to swing free. If you fish the jika, you can crank it as those who fish the swing head do. And vice versa.
