Keitech Spin Jig

The Keitech Mono Spin Jig in green pumpkin is a solid micro jig, and a consistent producer for bass. This bait paired with a small Keitech Spider in green pumpkin blue has been a sight fish champion catcher for me. I’ve seen multiple fish suck this bait down with my eyes on them. The key is to cut the little tentacles off the head of the little spider, so you are left with only the twin tail swimmers to add onto the jig. This micro jig by Keitech doesn’t have a good spot for your plastic to rest on the bait, so add a little dab of super glue to keep things in place.

This set up is extremely light, and can really only be effectively used on a spinning rod and reel set up. Put light 100% flourcarbon 6lbs line on your spinning reel to get better casting distance and more bites with this micro jig. Throw this jig under docks, and out deep to catch bass that others won’t get. The spin jig will also go through grass really well with the little weed-guard on it.

Z-Man Shroomz Micro Finesse Jig

The Z-man Shrooms Micro Finesse Jig in green pumpkin is a legit micro jig to help you catch bass. This micro jig is a little heavier, so you can get a little more distance out of your casts. Plus, you can add a little bigger trailer to this jig to give it a different profile. One of my favorite trailers for this jig is a biwaa ultra hog cut in half. Use the small side with the flapping flanges as your trailer to give your jig some nice action.

The one downside to this micro jig by z-man is the hook isn’t super sharp. Plus,  there isn’t a lot of gap room in the hook to stick those bass if you add a trailer. The upside to this bait is you can get two jigs in a pack to help out your wallet. The 1/8 oz size is my favorite.  This jig will go a little deeper faster than the keitech mono spin, but still gives you that small enticing profile to help you “krak” some bass!

Strike King Bitsy Bug

The Strike King Bitsy Bug in blue craw is another solid micro jig. Pair this thing up with a small 3 inch double tail green pumpkin yamamoto, and your in business. The extra small profile of this bait gets bites. Plus, it is heavier with a stouter hook so you can up size your baits a little bit. I’ve thrown this bait successfully with a solid baitcasting set up and light 10 lbs flourcarbon line.

The key to this micro jig is to trim out your weed-guards. Only leave a couple weed guards intact, so you can get more hook ups. The weed guards are unusually stiff for such a small bait on the bitsy bug. What is great about the bitsy bug micro jig is you can also flip it around cover decently.  Sometimes just the little more weight on this jig will help you fall further down through holes in the brush and cover.
