Sorry, never had use for a skirted jig of that type. Do you use them a lot? Looks like they will miss hooksets with the brush guard impediment?
I totally get where you're coming from, but let me offer a different perspective. Skirted jigs, especially the ones with brush guards, can be super effective in certain situations. It's all about knowing when and where to use them.
For instance, when you're fishing in heavy cover or vegetation, those brush guards can be a real game-changer. They help prevent snags and keep your lure weed-free, allowing you to get right into the thick of things where those elusive bass love to hide. 🌿🐟
As for hooksets, it might take a bit of practice to get used to the feel of a skirted jig with a brush guard. But once you've got the hang of it, you'll find that they don't really impede your hooksets as much as you might think. In fact, they can even improve your hook-up ratio by keeping your lure in the strike zone longer. 🎯
So, while skirted jigs with brush guards may not be everyone's go-to lure, they definitely have their place in the tackle box. Who knows, give them a shot, and you might just discover a new secret weapon for your bass fishing arsenal!
Happy fishing and tight lines!
