Hi AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is a review of a great product by Freedom Tackle Corp., which is their Stealth swim jig.
Swim jigs are quite unique baits themselves as they allow us to fish them various ways with various soft plastic trailers, but this Stealth version from Freedom Tackle is unique in itself as it has a swing motion to it, which other swim jigs do not have.
Their is some pretty cool technology behind the head of this bait, that offers all us anglers and fishing enthusiast’s something we have never seen before and nothing we have ever been able to use this way before. The hook can be removed from this bait very simply, yes you read that correctly, you can take the hook off this bait due to the specialized technology inside the bait head.
These baits has a brass chamber inside the lead head, which was designed this way to allow for more noise when the bait hits the bottom of the lake. Lead is quite dense and does not really make much noise at all to to it being dense, but this Freedom Tackle head has a hollow brass chamber that will give off noise in the form of a ping and clacking sound as it bounces along the bottom. Inside that brass chamber is also a unique curly arm like structure that is where the hook attaches to and can be removed from, making this a very versatile bait especially for kayak and shoreline anglers who are looking to travel with much less tackle.
Now why would it be beneficial to remove the hook off this bait? Well lets say the hook on your standard swim jig gets damaged or breaks, there is no way to replace that hook and the bait now becomes useless. If the hook on the Freedom Stealth swim jig for some reason break’s due to a band hangup or snag that causes too much tension/pressure on the hook(note: it comes with a very strong hook I might add.) it can quickly be taken off and replaced with a new hook so that bait is now a usable bait again!
Other benefits to being able to remove the hook off these bait are that you can pre-rig multiple soft plastics on extra hook that you have in your tackle and be ready to change that swim jig presentation in just a few seconds, this is absolutely priceless to us anglers! Say you are using the swim jig with a creature bait soft plastic bait on it and the fish stop hitting that bait, you can very quickly slide that hook and bait off the jig head and slide on that soft plastic swimbait that you already have rigged up on another hook. But this bait’s efficiency does not stop here, you can do this again and again quickly without damaging and wasting soft plastics due to pulling and putting them on and off the hook.
This is versatility at it’s best especially for all anglers who fish in small vessels like myself in my kayak, where battling space is a big issue as well as those fishing from shore, because a few of these Stealth swim jigs and a few packages of soft plastics can take you a long way creating 8 to 10 different baits from one, all while saving you money on soft plastics!
If you are looking for a great versatile bait with a lot of advantages to it, definitely take a good look at what Freedom Tackle has to offer, you will not be disappointed!
