JSJ Hitch Six Swimbait
Providing anglers with the perfect baitfish profile and action, the JSJ Hitch Six is a soft plastic, internal jig hook swimbait designed to match many types of forage. Using an actual hitch to engineer the molds, JSJ baits has created the most accurate hitch swimbait to date. Despite the desire to match the unique forage option, JSJ's Hitch Six Swimbait possesses a profile and action that broadens its scope of use to mimic shad, shiners and herring among other baitfish. At six inches in length, this swimbait is in the sweet spot of being a big bait, but not limiting it to only the big bass regions - instead, this bait appeals to bass of all sizes.
One look at the bait and you can tell it's certainly got the looks to be a big bass slayer. As mentioned, the Hitch Six possesses a real fishy looking profile that's enhanced by the addition of pectoral, pelvic, anal and dorsal fins which extend out from the main body. These fins are for more than just looks, they also help to stabilize the body and enable anglers to retrieve the swimmer slowly along the bottom with the bait still sitting upright - a very deadly technique. Also molded into the design are scale patterns, gills and facial features common to many baitfish species. In terms of paint jobs, it doesn't get much better than JSJ's work. The Hitch Six comes in six distinct color patterns each hand painted by baitmaker Josh St. John himself to match the most popular forage fish across the country including: hitch, shad and shiners. Finally, the real ingenuity of the bait: the tail. The Hitch Six features a brand new tail design that not only swims beautifully, but also provides a realistic shad or baitfish looking tail. Making both possible is a true feat of engineering and what makes this bait really special.
The JSJ Hitch Six Swimbait measures 6" in length and weighs 2.3oz. The bait is constructed around a 5/0 Mustad jig hook that is very much sufficient without the addition of a stinger hook.
