The swim jig technique has been around for many years and swim jigs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, variations. The swim jig versatility has BIG bass appeal that can’t be overlooked in any lake, reservoir or river system.
The D&M Flip n Spin swim jig has a unique shaped head and line tie with an under-spin blade. The flat diamond head shape is balanced to create an exaggerated shimmy that comes through cover without rolling over, even at high speeds. It imparts an irresistible swimming action to a wide range of trailers. The Flip n Spin is built around stout extended long shank 5/0 Gamakatsu hook, large keeper to secure trailers and is protected by a weed guard. It features beautiful lifelike head design with 3-D eyes, magnum long tail skirts and is available in a wide variety of colors to match popular swimbaits and craw trailers.

Fishing the D&M Flip n Spin swim jig is easy; Instead of letting the jig sink to the bottom and depending on the depth your trying to reach, start your retrieve after the jig hits the water. In most cases your retrieve will be much like a spinnerbait and no deeper than 8 or 10 inches below the surface or just above whatever grass/vegetation you might be targeting. Shaking your rod tip as you reel, gives the jig more action.
The Flip n Spin is not just an alternative to spinner baits, but also seems to attract larger fish. It’s primarily mimicking a fleeing Crawdad or Bait fish. A swim jig with a long tail trailer is a bulky lure that creates a lot of water movement and vibration. We recommend a swim bait style trailer in open water and a crawdad style trailer for use around tules, bulrush, cattails, grass/vegetation and mats.
Anglers have scores of places to fish the Flip n Spin; Lay downs, rip rap, retaining walls, boat docks or other aquatic vegetation are all prime locations to use a swim jig. Simply cast out or pitch past the intended target, start reeling, keeping the swim jig in the strike zone. It’s important to NOT stop reeling after hitting an object, the swim jig will have a tendency to deflect, bounce off or roll over the obstruction. In fact, that is when most strikes happen.
The Flip n Spin can to be fished at any retrieve speed; A slow Lift n Drop technique used in the spring, can really entice the big females. Using a duo-lock snap, gives the most realistic side to side rolling action and will increase vibration. If you tie direct to the eye you will get a more shimmering action and can swim it through some pretty thick grass. It will stand up on the bottom, using a floating type plastic trailer. It can also be slow rolled and bumped along bottom cover, counted down and retrieved through suspended bass, dropped vertically through treetops, and even burned near the surface.
