It's a Multi-Faceted Gem of a Jig!
The Multi Jig combines many of the best features of multiple
other jig types into one! It's a shakey jig, a stand-up jig, a
heavy duty flipping jig, a pointy-nosed grass jig, a swimming jig
with it's 28 degree eye angle. It incorporates a vertical (as
opposed to horizontal) football head that excels in rocky areas
and on deep structure, and it's good in wood. It's a Texas rig,
has a clip-on corkscrew keeper and a triple cone cut collar. It's
built on one of the best soft bait hooks ever made, the Mustad
91768BLN. It may be used with or without skirts and with most any
soft bait you desire, either with the hook exposed or not. The
6/0 Multi Jig is made for multiple bass fishing presentations all
in one jig.
Note: There are currently 2 versions of the Multi Jig. Both
are the same and weigh 3/4 ounce. The only difference is the hook
- 7/0 model. Perfect for pike and for the biggest bass
on the heaviest tackle such as in Texas, Mexico, California,
Florida or anywhere big bass abound around the globe.
- 6/0 model. For good bass on medium heavy tackle
Mustad's 91768BLN is used on many of the best swimbait and frog
hooks - and on the Multi Jig.
What is the most important component of a jig? Most
anglers won't get the answer right. It's the soft bait used as
the trailer. Think of the jig head and skirt as only a means to
attract fish over to strike the elevated soft bait! Really. If
you don't believe me, fish any skirted jig for a few days with no
soft bait on it. You won't do well. Next, remove the skirt and
fish the same jig only with a soft bait this time, and you'll do
okay. You'll prove it's the soft bait that fish want!
Think of the skirt as a picnic
blanket that opens and spreads out on the bottom under the
elevated soft bait. It's the soft bait that's the centerpiece of
the presentation - not the skirt.
Due to the importance of the soft bait, the Multi Jig is built
on one of the best soft bait hooks on the planet - Mustad's
91768BLN 28 degree Wide Gap UltraPoint Jig Hook. This same hook
is used on many of the most popular swimbait and frog weighted
hooks on the market. It's a superb hook for all soft baits.
What's also key is that Mustad's UltraPoint hooks are designed
to stay sharper longer than any other hook brands. The unmatched
durability means the UltraPoint will not bend, roll over or dull
as easily or quickly as other hooks. It resists failure and
provides unmatched penetration and performance.
The Multi Jig stand ups. The hook eye (and therefore the knot and
line) are held up high where they will not be the first part of
the jig to contact obstructions, the bottom or weeds. So although
the knot is right up front, the knot and line are not constantly
abraded as on other jigs with the line tie far forward. Sounds
simple but it's significant.
Also note the triple cone cut collar. Each cone has 360
degrees of bait-gripping power, or 1,080 degrees of bait-grip in
all. I did not invent the triple cone cut collar. It started on
saltwater jigs, but I was the first to use it for freshwater bass
lures. Many others are now adding these kinds of cone collars
onto their jigs too. Some are making the cones too small or too
close together and that's not best. The amply spaced and ringed
cones like those shown are the best of all ways to hold skirts
and soft baits securely. The corkscrew clips are also a great
method to hold baits securely.
Bottom View. The head shape is rounded on bottom and pointed on
both ends. It is a football shape lengthwise. This lets the Multi
Jig operate effectively in grass, wood, weeds, laydowns, stumps,
flooded trees, rocks, brush, whatever cover or structure you may
encounter, shallow or deep. The Multi Jig is a dream for night
fishing. Flip, pitch and cast it. The 28 degree hook eye makes it
perfect for swimming. It stands up. It's a Texas rig and a shakey
jig and a sweet swimbait head. It's multi-purpose.
7/0 Rigging Methods
It's a Big Ole Jig for Pike and
With the Multi Jig, you can fish a Texas rig and a jig both at
once in the same presentation. The Multi Jig is not one or the
other but both!
It's easy to use if you follow these five simple steps:
- First, select whichever soft bait you feel matches the
conditions. Try any soft bait, disregarding whether it's the type
normally used as a jig trailer.
- Next, decide whether you want to rig that with or without a
skirt. Either way is okay.
- In open water, rig the soft bait on the jig's triple cone
keeper collar (on the hook shank).
- If it's snaggy or weedy, rig using the wire corkscrew clip.
7/0 Multi Jig is like using a Texas-rigged worm AND a jig at
once! Shown with Yamamoto 10" Kut Tails (7XL series) with or
without 7" pike skirts.
Or how about fishing a 7" Senko and an 7" skirted jig
at once? That's how it's done at Lake Baccarac, Mexico - the best
trophy bass spot on earth.

6/0 with Hippo Tackle's 5" hollow body swimbaits. The
Multi Jig works with many hollow or solid body swimbaits.
In relatively snagless water, you can rig the Multi Jig with
the hook exposed as shown below. Push the skirt all the way
forward onto the collar so it is held securely in front of the
first cone. That still leaves two cones, or 720 degrees of grip
to hold the soft trailer securely in place.
