Nichols Saber Swim Jig - $3.49
The true definition of a workhorse, the Nichols Saber Swim Jig is built to stand up to fish-after-fish without fail. Constructed from high-quality components, the Nichols Saber Swim Jig features a hand-painted, chip-resistant head that is backed by a razor-sharp 5/0 3X-strong Mustad hook. To keep soft plastics locked in place, the Nichols Saber Swim Jig uses a patented toothpick pegging system, and even comes with two toothpicks to get you started. The toothpick pegging system is incredibly easy to use, simply slide your soft plastic onto the Nichols Saber Swim Jig, poke the toothpick through your bait, run it through hole that's molded along the shaft, and break it off so its flush with the bait. Complete with a 40-strand silicone skirt, the Nichols Saber Swim Jig is what you need to put a limit in the boat, and then some.
Comments: This is the best designed swim jig I have ever used. The hook that is on this jig is enormous, looks like a 7/0 hook by the size of the gap--no more missed fish as the hook is almost as long as the skirt. Nice profile, and I have noticed that the painted clearcoat head does not chip like others I have used. Very durable. Also, why no other companies use the toothpick keeper design baffles me, it is amazing. I use probably 1/10 the amount of plastics now--don't have to buy a bag of skinny dippers for every trip. The toothpick locks the trailer on, so when skipping docks you aren't constantly having to adjust the trailer, and refit it due to the plastic sliding down the hook or it tearing Excellent swim jig, getting rid of all my other brands.
Comments: This is a great swimjig. Comes through grass and pass with ease and fish just love it. My favorite color is Boombshell Bass paired up with a reaction innovations little dipper in money shot green. Thanks Nichols for quality baits at great prices.
