Missile Bait’s “Ike’s Micro Jig” is going to start a new category of super compact jigs and new way to finesse fish for bass.
Built on a No. 1 Gamakatsu light wire jig hook, the Micro Jig will come in 3 sizes - 1/16, 1/8, and 3/16 ounce.
Missile owner and Bassmaster Elite Pro John Crews said the jig moves well through cover and catches all species of bass.
In addition to the Gamakatsu hook, the skirt is a custom fine-cut version that fits the super compact jig frame. The Micro Jig will be offered in 6 colors in each of the 1/16, 1/8, and 3/16 ounce sizes. The colors will be Green Pumpkin, Straight Black, Sunfish IPA, Dill Pickle, PB&J, and Softshell.
The Micro Jig is best fished on a spinning rod with 8- or 10-pound line.
There will be two jigs in each package for a suggested retail of $5.99.
Included in the package will be two weed guards that can be easily installed with a drop of super glue for fishing around and through cover or left out for sparse cover applications.
“The Micro Jig gives you a TON of fish catching power in a small package,” says Micro Jig creator Mike Iaconelli . “It is great for clear water, cold water, river fishing, and heavily pressured fish. When I’m trying to match the hatch with small crayfish or bugs on the bottom, this is a prefect choice. The Micro Jig also doubles as a great Ned rig head or jig head for your favorite small soft plastic.”
Missile Baits is releasing matching colors of the Drop Craw in order to match up with all 6 of the Micro Jig colors. The Drop Craw fits perfectly on the Micro Jig.
