3.5" Texas-Rig Jig

(14 reviews) Write a Review

Product Overview

Single Pack: 6 Ct.

So there I am once again with the tip of my flippin stick 6 feet down in the water trying to dislodge my jig from the brush pile I was fishing. Despite my poking and prodding in the branchy pile of nastiness, I'm left with no choice but to cut my line and leave another jig behind as my temper begins to flare. To top it off, while I was poking around down there I broke one of the guides off my rod! Now I'm hot! After 5 minutes of cursing, growling and throwing my hands in the air like an angry Baboon (I think I even made up a few new words during my war dance), I finally settled down and the wheels in my head immediately started spinning. And that's when it happened?the idea for the 3.5" Texas-Rig Jig was born! As a matter of fact, the 3.5" Texas-Rig Jig also happens to be the very first bait released by PowerTeam Lures. Plus it was the bait that put PowerTeam Lures on the map (a little history there for ya). Anyway, so now I have a bait that has a jig appearance but I can Texas rig it (hence the name Texas-Rig Jig) so it allows me to fish the nastiest of brush piles without having to worry about getting my bait hung up! JOY! Double JOY! I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of spending more time fishing and less time trying to free up my baits. If you like flippin' and pichin' as much as I do, I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. Flip, Pitch and be Merry! ***It's a proven fact that reducing stress adds years to your life.


Bob's Tech Tip

9 times out of 10, I rig this bad boy on a 4/0 EWG topped off with a tungsten weight. I peg the weight but leave about 3/8 inch between the peg and the hook, unless of course if I'm punching grass. In that case, I'll peg the weight tight to the hook. Fish it just like you would a standard jig and pitch it anywhere you please?even in jungles where you wouldn't even think about tossing a standard jig in.

    Looks like another awsome bait from PTL!

    Just got the 3.5" in green pumpkin. The bait looks great on a jig rig or texas rig with a 1/4oz to 1/2oz tungsten weight and a 3 to 4/0 hook. I'm looking foward to fish this bait in heavy cover and brush piles. Thanks PTL for coming out with this craw! Tight lines everybody.

    Big Fish Bait!!

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Oct 2016

    This has quickly become my most confident bait for catching bigger fish! I always have a Texas Rig Jig tied on. I've fished them weightless, and have caught fish that way. But I personally like to use it with either a 4/0 or 5/0 Trokar hook and usually a 3/8oz bullet weight, which seems to give me the best fall rate. Get you some!!

    Solid Flipping Bait

    Posted by Sawyer Sparks on 20th Jul 2016

    I love this bait rigged with a 7/16 ounce jig head. Perfect for flipping shallow cover as well as boat docks. Durability is unbelievable with these baits multiple fish with a single bait.

    Have always had attention using this bait either by itself or paired with a bullnose. No matter the day or condition something will take a swipe at this bait.

    GO-TO versatility

    Posted by Dave Ruckdeschel on 9th May 2014

    The TRJ is awesome! Check out the video, those claws are always up off the bottom and scream EAT ME! This is one versatile bait as well. Flip/pitch, Football jig, Carolina rig, shaky, and even weightless over mats. This has the right profile to entice the big ones, it is the total package. Pick up several colors to match any water.
