Guide Review - Pulse Jig from Buckeye Lures
While fishing the Georgia Bass Chapter Federation Nation Top Six at Lake Hartwell on the second day I fished a brush pile I had found the first tournament day. I had caught some little bass out of it on a jig head worm the first day but neither my partner or I got a strike.
As we started to leave I told my partner I was going to try a "change up" and tied on a Pulse Jig. I had never fished one before but on my second cast swimming the jig across the top of the brush I hooked and landed a three pound largemouth, my best of the day. It helped me place 8th in that tournament.
In a tough May tournament at Lanier I caught three spotted bass weighing ten pounds on the pulse jig head to place second in a club tournament. Those were the only three bites I got all day.
The Pulse Jig is a good finesse bait to use when you want a small amount of action from a lifelike bait. The clear plastic head is pretty invisible in the water and the bait looks like a small fish.
I will depend on this bait in the future in clear water under tough conditions.
