The Jika Rig combines a free rig style weight with an EWG hook to make a compact and effective bass fishing rig. This new technique has been growing in popularity, and Bait Finesse Empire is proud to offer these downsized versions that are perfect for BFS fishing.
The EWG hook is connected to the weight via a split ring allowing your bait to freely move and flutter as it is worked on the bottom. This little rig is excellent for working through rocks, light grass, or on beds. It can be worked slowly in much the same way as a dropshot rig when fishing pressured fish or sped up to trigger more aggressive bites with a simple dragging motion.
Pair the Jika Rig with your favorite finesse creature bait, Ned style bait, or finesse worm to offer your fish a more natural presentation than a standard Ned or Texas rig.
These Jika Rigs are locally made in Phoenix, AZ, for Bait Finesse Empire by AZ Lead Works. All the weights we offer under our in-house brand are powder coated for extra durability and a crisper sound that drives the fish wild when worked over hard surfaces.
