By: Luke Simonds on February 3, 2020
Do you hate getting snagged on structure?
You have to wrestle with whatever’s got you snagged, then take the time to retie, not to mention all the noise you’re making that’s probably scaring off the fish and the couple bucks wasted from the lost lure.
One solution to get snagged less is to use a weedless jig head.
In this video, I’m breaking down the pros and cons to this Z-Man weedless jig head, plus sharing when I like to use the weedless version vs. a regular jig head.
Let’s dive in!
Z-Man Weedless Jig Head Review [VIDEO]
Predator fish love hanging around structure because baitfish and crustaceans hang around there, and it provides shelter for them to hide from predators like dolphin or bigger fish.
So if you want to catch more fish, it’s best to fish around structure.
However, branches, pilings, docks, rocks and other bottom debris make it easy for you to get snagged.
A good way to combat this is to use a weedless jig head.
Below are some of the pros and cons I’ve found when using this Z-Man weedless jig heads.
Pros Of Weedless Jig Heads
Obviously the big pro for using weedless jig heads is that you get snagged less.
You can fish closer to structure, which can help you catch more fish.
It also helps you save time from retying and money from not having to replace as many lures, lost leaders or jig heads.
Plus, since it just has a small weed guard, you’re able to use it just like any other jig head.
Cons Of Weedless Jig Heads
The big con with weedless jig heads is that it can decrease your hookup ratio.
I have noticed that I get more hits that don’t turn into hookups with these jig heads.
However, I’ve also caught lots of big fish with them, and I think that decreased hookup ratio is worth the time, money, and frustration saved from getting snagged too often.
Another con is that these Z-Man weedless jig heads are hard to find.
Since they’re my favorite weedless jig heads, we’ve ordered them in bulk and now have them available on our shop page for you to get here.
If you’re fishing in areas of heavy structure, like docks, I’d definitely recommend using a weedless jig head.
Yes, your hookup ratio may decrease, but I think it’s worth it given that you’ll get snagged less.
Plus, I’ve caught lots of big fish with these jig heads, so they’re proven to work.
On the other hand, if you’re fishing in grass flats, open water, or muddy areas where there’s nothing to get snagged on, I’d recommend a regular jig head.
