Many anglers think of swim jigs as a shallow water bait that's only effective at certain times of the year. Drew Cook believes otherwise. Growing up, he was successful with several sneaky ways to fish a swim jig in places where other baits were harder to fish or bass were used to seeing those baits. Drew begins this bass fishing class seminar video by sharing his favorite jigs, trailers and tackle for fishing a swim jig shallow and out deeper. Then Drew does a breakdown of the seasons with some of his favorite colors and trailers for that time of year, along with ways to fish a swim jig at that time and places to fish. Drew wraps up this class by answering some Bass University student questions about swim jig fishing.
