Chaumont Bay Jig Fishing [VIDEO]

Chaumont Bay Jig Fishing

 

Frank and Brendan hit Chaumont Bay in New York for some Fall Bass Fishing for big largemouth and smallmouth bass. Part of a 4 day fun fishing trip in the Seneca River area. Lots of 3 lb plus bass.

 

 

Freedom is Performance Review

First Impressions

These are well made Jighead with a good paint job and ultra sharp hooks.

Lure Features 

Zodiac:small round jighead with 3D eyes 2/0 lightwire hook.
Rogue: large round jighead with a 3/0 heavywire hook.
Hydra: Bullet Head with a 3/0 heavywire hook.
Stealth: Large bullet head with 3D eyes and rubber skirt and 3/0 heavywire hook.

Skirt:

Stealth: Green pumpkin skirt

Hook

All jigheads have 3/0 hooks

Testing 

Air Temps: 81 degrees
Water Temps: 77 degrees
Water Clarity: slightly stained water
Type of structure/cover fished: Off shore structure: Rock piles and deep weed lines
Testing Locations: Lake Geneva
Equipment: 7’ Gloomis IMX Rod , Lews tournament speed spool reel 6:3:1 , 12lbs test McCoy mean green mono line

Performance/Effectiveness

Did you catch anything, and if so how did you catch it? Yoyo the jigs on the edge of the rock piles slowly.
What were the sizes of the fish? 12-14” bass, 4 of them
Were there any issues at all during your test? None to report
Did this lure outperform other lures of the same type and/or style (please explain how it did or did not)?
All the lure mostly worked the same however the stealth jig was the best around the weedlines

Technique Used

These Jigs, in my opinion are designed for off shore techniques. If these jigs were made with lighter weights I could see a shallower application but they are not designed like that. UPDATE: Freedom Lures has many more products and sizes. Check them out at FreedomLures.com

Action

I just usde a standard hoping motion (similar to stroking a jig)

Weed-less Effectiveness 

These were ot really effective in the weeds to me.

Construction/Quality

Very well made construction with great paint jobs. The swivel action lets the jig head swing freely and aides for quick changing of hook sizes. Chip resistant paint and extra-large eyelet for easy tying.

Durability

These jigs are very durable these jigs went through a full 12 hour day and they took my abuse very well.

Reviewer’s Overall Thoughts

These Jigs are very well made and very good off shore structure jigs in summertime. Would like to see a lighter weighted version for shallower applications and more of finesse presentation. Overall the jigs perform very well

Articles-Help

ARTICLE & HOT TIPS CRITERIA - for use by our prostaff team members & field-writers.

Bassin’ America would like your help in providing quality articles to all it’s members. By writing articles and allowing them to be published free of charge, your articles will have the potential to be viewed by millions of Internet users. In addition, they will be displayed in article archives on our high traffic website. Here is some general information that may help you in creating your articles:

 
Short articles are preferred, between 500 and 750 words. Bass fishing “Hot Tips” of a few sentences or a short paragraph are extremely popular. Articles should be formatted to 65 characters per line or less including spaces and written in short paragraph sections.

 
When you begin writing your article, avoid using your standard word processing programs, as they do not allow for proper formatting. Instead, use a text editor such as Notepad. It should already be installed on your computer in:


START > PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > NOTE PAD

When you begin typing your article, use a hard carriage return (hit enter) when your text reaches 65 characters, including spaces, and leave a space between your paragraphs. This will enable our publisher to easily copy and paste your article into our website or publication and significantly increase your chances of being published.

 
Here are some basicguidelines to help you increase your chances of being published:
Your article must be properly formatted. Publishers won’t take the time to format your article, they’ll simply use another article that is properly formatted.
Select a descriptive title to intrigue your readers.
Use proper grammar and spelling. Spell check! Read your article! 
Avoid articles that are nothing more than a sales pitch, as your chances of being published will be minimal.
Avoid referring readers to an affiliate URL as this will make your article appear to be biased and untrustworthy.
Write your articles with a sincere desire to teach and inform. Talk to your readers and share your expertise.
Quoting from other industry professionals lends more credibility to your article.

Available Article Topics - areas of interest for online publication

TACKLE – Jigs, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, hooks, weights, etc.
