How to use a Hair Jig to catch monster Bass! Big bass love the Hair Jigs.
Make sure to hit the SHOW MORE to read more descriptions of this video!
In this video I go over all the ins and outs of the hair jig. I specifically talk about the finesse hair jigs that work great in clear water for smallmouth bass, but I also touch on a great technique to use on cold water largemouths.
Finesse hair jigs made out of marabou, bucktail and bear hair are some of the best ways to put big smallmouth bass in the boat year round. The marabou hair jig really shines during colder water temps but does work year round under certain conditions. The hair jig is a great bait to use around heavy fishing pressure, cold fronts or really anytime you feel that a subtle approach is the key. I use hair jigs a lot and after many years of trial and error I found some of the best ways to use the hair jig.
Fishing a marabou hair jig has been a long kept secret and until recently really hasn't been talked about much. Many big tournaments have been won on hair jigs and to this day still play a key role in many tournament wins. I would highly recommend picking up a few hair jigs and giving them a try on your next trip to a clear water fishery. It doesn't take long to learn how to throw a hair jig and the rewards can be some of the best catch fishing days you may ever experience!
I primarily use a marabou hair jig and a buck tail hair jig. Each has there time and place and I would suggest using both and experimenting with the retrieve and how you work the hair jig back to the boat.
I also talk about the marabou drop shot bait that is becoming one of my favorite techniques year round. The action of this bait is amazing and it will catch fish when nothing else seems to be working! I am currently working with a company that I will be announcing shortly to produce a high quality marabou drop shot bait with the correct hook size and action so as soon as these are available I will be putting up the link here in the description for you.
Give the hair jig a try this year and let me know what you think about them!

Who is SmallmouthCrush?
Travis Manson was born and raised where the giant Smallmouth Bass of the north live...WISCONSIN. He started fishing from the bank as at a young age and spent most of his childhood with a rod in his hand. Travis is primarily a self-taught angler that is always learning and experiencing this amazing sport of fishing. He started out fishing for walleyes and fishing in local walleye tournaments, but then in his mid 20's, he caught the BASS BUG and has been hooked every since. He competed at the highest level in bass fishing on the Bassmaster Elite series for a number of years, until he ran out of $$ money $$. This led to a move across the country to the Northeast where he got things right again and is back on track, but now on his own terms. Perhaps he will make another run at the Elite Series if the opportunity allows. In the meantime, he is a fishing guide offering trips on the Chesapeake Bay for largemouth bass(year round), guided trips for smallmouth back in Wisconsin (during select times) and trophy smallmouth bass guided trips in Upstate New York (May-November) His Youtube Channel is named after his passion for the smallmouth bass and will be used as a platform for "how-to" videos, on the water instruction, crazy on and off the water topics and vlogs on the day in the life of a fishing addict! Hope you enjoy!
