I don’t know who came up with the name for the Jigwobbler by Wake Fishing LTD, but they hit the nail on the head. It’s a hybrid between two fish catching lures a crankbait and jig. It’s like nothing else you have ever seen with a wobbling action that gives it the appearance of really swimming, but sinks when paused resembles a dying baitfish.
Pictures say a thousand words. In this case, I really appreciate the ability to put photos in with this article. The Jigwobbler (www.jigwobbler.com) created by Mikael Brandt is not easy to describe. So, take a look at them. Notice anything different from other lures? It looks like two lures in one. The jointed construction allows an angler to fish it in water where they never could before. Its head is made from lead that allows the angler to make extremely long casts without effort while the body has a lip that causes the body to swim back and forth.
The Jigwobbler can be reeled in fast or slowly just like a jointed swimbait and just like a jointed swimbait the head has a slow stead rolling action while the body appears to be swimming back and forth. It can also be paused allowing the head to sink while the body swims downward following the lead head. Another technique is to use a jerk, pause, jerk, pause retrieve. All of these techniques will catch fish. Some days a faster retrieve is required to get a fish to strike while other days the action of the Jigwobbler falling downward is all that’s required. Every day is different so the angler will have to try different retrieves until they start catching fish.
The Jigwobbler has only one treble hook located on its body. It’s located on the tail section where most bass strike the Jigwobbler because of the movement. One advantage to having the one hook makes it less likely to hang up when fishing around grass or brush and few fish miss the lure when retrieved by them. Unlike other lures the Jigwobbler has a wire shaft that runs from the lead head where the angler ties their line to it called the front wire. The front wire gives anglers a great advantage when fishing around toothy fish like northern pike or muskie since no wire leader is required to keep from losing it.
A Jigwobbler can also be tuned to have more or less swimming action. This is done by tuning it. For more swimming action just bend the body connection upwards; for less bend the body downwards. Caution should be used when bending the lure so the lure doesn’t break at the connection.
The Jigwobbler comes in four sizes including small, medium, large, and XXXL. The small is 2-inches long and weighs ¼-ounces, the medium 2 5/6-inches long and weighs 5/8-ounces, large 3 1/8-inches and weighs 1-once, and the XXXL is 15-cm long and weighs either 2 ¼-ounce (slow sinking) or 3 ½-once (fast sinking). The Jigwobbler comes in 10 color patterns to choose from including black silver chrome, blue silver chrome, ghost, green tiger, parrot, shiny red, yellow jaguar, firer tiger, nightmare, and yellow chrome. While the larger Jigwobbler is great for fishing stripers or other large sport fish; the smaller sized Jigwobbler was made for catching white bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass or other panfish.
