Best Trailers to Use on a Swim Jig

James Niggemeyer loves to fish a jig, and he has some trailers he always reaches for. He lists his favorites.

One of my favorite ways to catch bass is with a swim jig. My go-to heavy cover swim jig is the Strike King Hack Attack Heavy Cover Swim Jig. What makes it a heavy cover swim jig is the fiber weed guard and heavy hook which keep it from getting hung up.

I always put a trailer when fishing a jig, especially a swim jig, and these are my top three.

Strike King Rage Menace Grub

I love the Rage Menace Grub because the Rage Tail really kicks and has a lot of action. The profile and design of the grub allows it to come through the water at a good clip, kicking around, making the fish think they're about to eat a bluegill.
