Are jigs good muskie baits in the spring?



Jigs are tremendous in the spring. It’s a very underrated presentation. Problem is they bore the heck out of most anglers, so not many guys use them as much as they should. But, they work for sure and often when nothing else will. There are many out there, but any good reaper tail is a top choice. The new Lindy Tiger Tail is another good one. A plain jig head tipped with a big chub will work too. Use a light weight steel leader and set the hook immediately. If you hesitate, the fish may swallow the hook and that could mean a dead muskie.
