The Texas Jig by Fitzgerald Fishing is designed so it can be fished with or without a skirt. You can rig it with just a bait and no skirt for a more finesse approach of if needing to match the hatch. The Texas Jig has two specially designed weed guards that allow it to be flipped into the heaviest of cover without hanging up and still have a great hook up ratio. This jig is designed to be fished anywhere you would typically flip or pitch a Texas Rig or a punch skirt rig. This jig excels when fished in reeds, buggy whips, tule reeds, Kissimmee grass, Hydrilla and wood.
The weed guards on the Texas Jig are fully adjustable. If you want the guards close to the hook for a super sensitive hook up just bend them down and they will stay close to the hook. If you want the guards farther away to make the jig more weed less then just push them away from the hook. If you want the guards closer together or farther apart that is possible as well.

The Texas jig has become my go to way to flip. It gives you the hookup benefits of a jig but with the ability of more typical texas rig applications. It very seldomly hangs up because the double weed guard. I generally go without the skirt when I'm using traditional plastics and add the skirt for a bulkier look. A must have tool in the box!!
I purchased the 1oz Texas Jig for flipping reeds in FL. It performed beyond my expectations, so I tried the 1/2oz for flipping trees and docks. The coated weed guard, I can't say enough good about. It works well in most grass types and the flat head can be skipped under docks. Paired with a good creature trailer and it has produced some nice bites. Plus, the angle of the head allows the trailer to prop up like a crawfish or bug. It looks more natural. We tried this in the pool to get a good look under water and it has better posture than a traditional football Jig.
