I was at the Toronto Sportsman Show and managed to get my hands on some of The Perfect Jig‘s newest jig, the Underspin and spent the next day on the Niagara River, so I decided to take them for a spin! And am I ever glad I did!!
It took me a little while to figure out which rod would work best for trout, after loosing a rainbow trout and a laker with my first two rod choices I picked up a 7’6″ Bas Pro Cranking Stick paired with a Daiwa Tatula Type-R and started landing every fish that hit! The first two rods where too stiff and I was loosing fish at the boat. I was thinking too much about what rod I would use for bass and the underspin and not thinking about what rod suited trout.
A lot was taken into consideration with design of this jig. The hook is oversized and super sharp sticking even fish that swam forward with the bait was not a problem! The keeper is stellar, I never had a swimbait move down the shank of the hook, even with a fish on! The silver head is perfect for imitating just about any baitfish species and has a big, easy target eyes that even after multiple fish and some bottom banging are still on there. The bottom post extends down far enough that the blade can spin with out interruption even under large bellied swimbaits.
I honestly believe this jig will be a big time fish catcher and you will be hearing a lot about it in 2016! Wait, why am I telling you this, maybe I should keep this a secret for a bit…
