Our Piranha swim jig continues to be bass catcher in any water. We have expanded our “Piranha” line several times over the years. But have felt that it was not complete without a true heavy weight.
We wanted a jig that could be used in fresh or saltwater so we searched many of the Pike, Muskie and Stripe Bass Jigs and came to a decision that 1.5oz. and 3/4oz. would fit the need in any deep or shallow water fishing.
We designed a 1.5oz. lead head “Heavy Hitter” for the Piranha Dredger Jig but also wanted a lighter version of the same head design so we had an additional head made of tin thus making a 3/4oz. Dredger Jig called “Tin Man”
We have tested this jig in all forms of bass fishing and it has excelled in all of them. This jig vibrates just like a rattle trap,. Rip it up off the bottom just like a spoon, giving any plastic trailer super action. Chuck n Wind and our long tail skirt gives a great quivering action. Lift n Drop or Dead Stick it on bottom and the hook will be in an almost upright position. Drag it slowly and it will almost stand on end, giving great action to any plastic trailer. Yo-Yoing it over the top of suspended fish just like a jigging spoon, slow roll it along the bottom just like a spinnerbait, use a lift in drop in your retrieve or rip it back to you, or dead stick it and the Jig hook will be in an upright position ready to strike.
The Dredger Jig makes a great trolling jig, bottom runner, open water jig for fresh and saltwater fishing. In addition to Bass, this large 8/0 hook gives the perfect hook up ratio for even the largest predator fish like Pike, Muskie and Striped Bass.
The Piranha Dredger Jig features a long shank 8/0 Gamakatsu hook, 3-D jig head design available in 7 long lasting colors clear coated over the eyes to keep them in place along with 24 colored long-tailed skirts giving you 100’s of custom color combos. Because the jig is cast from different alloys in the same mold we can offer two weights with the same size head; 1.5oz and the 3/4oz. The Dredger Jig is very well balanced, giving it even greater vibration and comes with an additional a belly ring in the bottom for those wanting to add flash blade or treble hook.
