The Missing Link Jig by Stanford Baits has 'Patent Pending' innovative bladed jig design. The built in wire creates vibration and acts as a perfect weed guard, that allows the bait to get through the thickest cover. Featuring a hull shaped jig head for a perfect swimming presentation. The jig head is formed around a beefy 5/0 VMC heavy flipping hook, making for great hook ups and less fish losses. Suggestion: Fish it on a medium heavy rod with 17-20lb. Mono,Fluro or Braid 50 to 65lb.
