Useful in a wide range of applications Skirted Jig Heads are the perfect combination for finesse fishing situations that call for the look of a squid or octopus in action. Smaller and denser than traditional lead based rigs, tungsten is also super sensitive, allowing you to detect more strikes and catch more fish while greatly reducing hang ups!  Simply feed your line through the weighted skirt, tie on your Worm or Jig style hook, and rig up either a Swimerz Vibro Tail or fresh bait on the provided Swimerz Long Shank Hooks.

Used in a similar fashion to Ocky Jigs, Chatterbaits and similar lure designs, the Vike Skirted Jig Heads are designed for horizontal jigging and punching through weed in fresh water and estuary situations where the skirt becomes a target as inquisitive fish can't help reacting to the lure swimming past. Typically rigged so the head slides freely on the leader just above your selection of hook type*, the shape of the head enables fishing to occur horizontally, as in cast and retrieve fishing, basically creating a jig that shields the bait or lure as it enters and exits thick vegetation without becoming snagged, allowing the hook and weight to separate when fighting a fish.

For vertical ‘Micro Jigging’ in deeper water these Jig Heads can also be allowed to sink to any depth before making a retrieve, making them a great option when Snapper fishing, for instance. Out deep these lures are also deadly on many other bottom dwellers such as jewfish, kingfish and pearl perch as can’t help themselves and instinctively strike in reaction to it. In this situation the standard lift and drop jigging technique for soft plastics is the required presentation for these lures. When retrieving the lure you can opt for a steady wind, but it pays to break up this steady wind with some speed variation as this will provide an action that emulates that of an Ocky or Squid in action.  Using a stop/start retrieve, with small pauses, enables the skirt to flutter and flare, presenting a larger, more enticing profile to larger fish.

Whether using fresh bait or soft plastic you can simply drop it to the bottom, raise it about half a metre, and just stick the rod into in the holder and let the motion of the boat do all the work for you.

Suited for all blue water predators their versatility makes them effective not only on resident reef species but pelagics as well.

The Bonus T-Stops can also be used to peg the Skirt in any desired position at the front of your weedless rigged soft plastic bait.
