All of us have heard that less is more and this is certainly true in fishing at times. Factors like fishing pressure, time of the year, and forage size can all play a role in to proper bait selection and sometimes smaller is the answer; smaller like the Luke Clausen Compact Pitchin’ Jig. It’s 25% smaller than our Tour Level Pitchin’ Jig without sacrificing hook gap thanks to the 60° flat-eye Gamakatsu 4/0 hook. This compact designed Arkie head also features our color-matched 3 layer paint job and EXCLUSIVE high-definition TC Series Skirt that allows for more movement and flare even when cut short. This jig is full of all the things that you love about Dirty Jigs Tackle but in a compact package. Tie this on and spend less time straining water and more time hooking fish!
The finesse jigs on the market today are, well, pretty standard. Basic hook with a standard head without much thought as to the how's and why's. At Dirty Jigs Tackle, we have never accepted standard as good enough. So we sat down with Luke Clausen and created the Luke Clausen Finesse Jig. Why? Because we wanted a better finesse jig. For starters we used an exclusive Gamakatsu Low Profile Big Bite 60° hook. That hook makes it so we can center the hook shank in the head for proper balance and leave plenty of bite. In fact there is up to 70% more bite for an incredibly higher hook up ratio. Most finesse jig leave the eye sticking out way above the head. We completely recessed the eye. This keeps the head out of the way and prevents the hook from camming out for rock solid hook sets. It also makes this finesse jig come through cover with less hang ups. The high definition thin cut skirt skirt will give you a detailed compact profile to get the interest of even the pickiest of eaters and of course it comes with the durable, color-matched three layer paint job that you have come to expect from Dirty Jigs. The Luke Clausen Finesse Jig...the standard has just been raised!
One of the things that ensures success on the FLW Tour for Scott Canterbury is versatility. True to Scott’s persona, his Signature Canterbury Flippin’ Jig, is no different. This is the best all-around flippin’ jig that we have ever made! His design is a true all purpose head that you can flip, pitch, or swim in any type of cover. We paired his head with a new 30° Gamakatsu 3x heavy wire hook that is sharp and strong to get the bass out of the cover and to your boat. It comes in a slew of colors that feature a durable, color-matched 3 layer paint job and our high definition skirts that make it easy to match the forage anywhere that you wet a line. Flip, pitch, and swim? Check! Grass, rocks, and wood? Check! The only check left is the one that you will get after the weigh-in.
Heavy mats. You know the ones, right? The ones with the thick, nasty, matted grass that you know holds giant fish but it stops any regular jig dead in its tracks and leaves you scratching your head. We used to be there too until Dirty Curt designed this weapon. It features the super-strong, gorilla taming No-Jack hook that is made to fish in the heavy cover jungle. The bullet shaped head easily slips in and out of the vegetation while keeping the head upright and preventing roll-over. He also modified the hook placement to maximize the hook gap for incredible hook-up power and ratio. Of course this jig also comes with the detailed, durable paint job that Diry Jigs Tackle is known for. When you’re fishing cover this heavy, you’re in for a fight. Don’t be afraid to throw the first punch.
Based on the jig that started it all at Dirty Jigs Tackle, the No-Jack Flippin’ Jig is the most versatile heavy cover jig on the market. It features a 30 degree vertical line tie that connects you to the heavy-duty, pull your truck out of the ditch No-Jack hook that will yank big bass from their heavy cover homes. But this jig isn’t all about brute force…with an airbrushed 3 tone paint job, detailed skirts to match any craw or baitfish, and a super tough epoxy clear coat, this jig looks as good as it fishes. Heavy cover? No worries…Get in there and get dirty.
When it comes to fishing around rocks, docks, and wood the Tour Level Pitchin’ Jig will get you in and bring the fish out!. This traditional style Arkie head pitches, casts, skips, and flips hard cover like a boss. What isn’t traditional is the semi-recessed line tie that makes our pitchin’ jig a little more weedless than most. The durable three layer paint scheme and highly detailed skirts will match up to any forage that the bass are eating and the 5/0 Mustad (4/0 in the 1/4oz) makes sure you hook up and get that fish to the boat.
The HP (High Performance) Flipping Jig is an all around work horse of a jig. We have utilized many design features into this jig to make it perform well for all flipping and pitching applications. The modified wedge designed head combined with a flat eye jig hook allows this jig to work well in and around vegetation, wood, and rocks. Along with having a design allowing this jig to come through all types of cover the head has a flattened bottom to give you that stand up defensive crayfish posture.
Details, especially the fine ones, are often the difference between success and failure. Details like knowing when getting on top of the fish isn’t the deal and pulling off and casting a jig is. Luke Clausen is someone who pays attention to details. Details like a weight forward head design featuring a wire keeper to ensure a vertical fall, a 90 degree Gamakatsu O’Shaughnessy medium wire hook that sets with ease and keeps them pinned, and a custom 60 strand thin-cut skirt that nails the perfect balance between body and flare needed when stroking or casting a jig. Coupled with the Dirty Jigs Tackle paint and you have THE BEST casting and stroking jig that you can get your hands on. Details from the mind of Luke, developed by Dirty Jigs so that we can give you the very best; The Luke Clausen Signature Series Casting Jig.
