Football jigs feature a weighted head that is similar in shape to a football or rugby ball. This head shape assists it in its primary purpose – to crawl along the bottom in hard-bottom/rocky areas without getting snagged between crevices. Football jigs are often fished with craw or creature trailers in order to mimic a crawfish, which are often found in these same rocky areas. Tungsten football jigs have emerged in recent years as superior to traditional lead jigs, allowing more sensitivity to better feel the bottom and tell the difference between hard/rocky areas, soft bottoms, and pieces of cover that your jig contacts during the retrieve.
Harmony Tackle for the Football Jig
Tungsten Football Jigs (Modular Skirt System - 2 Jigs, 4 Skirts, 2 Rattles, 5 Bait Pegs)
$11.29 - $14.99
- Harmony's Tungsten Football Jig Modular-Skirt-System™ Kit includes (2) Tungsten Football Jigs, (4) Skirts, (2) Slip-On Rattles, and (5) Bait Pegs™. This kit has you covered with 4 skirt colors for any jig fishing situation.
- These jigs utilize 97% Pure Tungsten construction for the ultimate sensitivity and compact profile. Tungsten is almost twice as dense as lead, meaning your jighead can be half the physical size for the same weight and can transmit vibration from bottom contact twice as well as similar lead jigs.
- Football jigs are incredibly effective when fishing hard or rocky bottoms. The football shaped head allows the jig to drag along the bottom and over rocks without tipping over to the side or falling into cracks.
- Included rattles can be easily slipped onto your jig to increase the strike zone in stained or muddy water when fish rely more on sound/vibration than vision for feeding. The included Bait Pegs™ install in seconds over your soft plastic trailer baits to keep them pegged in place and prevent premature tearing of baits.
- Harmony's signature MSS™ Jigs (Modular-Skirt-System™) allow you to quickly install different skirt colors onto your jigs to better fit your fishing style and location. Easily match the hatch without needing to purchase several separate jig colors.
