WHAT IS IT?
VMC Ned Rig Jig
WHAT SETS IT APART?
The Ned rig has morphed from specialty to mainstream lure, and VMC has taken the go-to bait to another level with the Ned Rig Jig. Setting it apart is a pointed mushroom head design with a cone at the neck, which allows it to slip through almost any cover without hanging or fouling. The line tie is 90 degrees off the top of the head, which helps balance weight when a soft plastic bait is attached, also allowing the head to track straight. The bait keeper is formed from ribbed rings around the head to keep baits firmly in place, even when worked through heavy cover. The hybrid bend hook is made of made from chemically sharpened Vanadium Steel. Sporting a 1/0 hook, available in 1/16-, 1/8-, 3/16- and 1/4-ounce sizes. Three colors: black, green pumpkin and chartreuse.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Have no fear in fishing this Ned rig through heavy cover. The pointed head design and beveled edge conical keeper, spaced at an optimal distance from the jig head, keep plastics firmly in place as the jig slips through the cover.
If there could be a technical version of a Ned rig, VMC wins the prize with this iteration. I like having a basically snag-free rig that I can depend on for finnicky bass in shallow water. This rig is especially ideal for pressured waters, when wary bass have seen just about every sort of bait throughout the water column and in heavy cover.
