VMC Gliding Jig

The VMC Gliding Jig is an entirely new style of jig head that's best described as a spoon/jig hybrid that creates incredible action for any bait you thread onto it. Ok, before you write this jig head off because it looks kinda odd, take a minute and watch the video below - you'll be amazed. The VMC Gliding Jig is intended to be used as a jig head for plastics of all types including: flukes, swimbaits, worms and creatures among others. The best way to describe the use of the Gliding Jig is to not describe it at all and just show you - see the video below - but for the purpose of the product descriptions we'll try. If you've ever seen the flutter of a leaf falling from a tree as it descends to the ground, it shakes and shimmies a bit as the extended surface area catches air. The Gliding Jig has a very similar action - it flutters as it descends through water causing any attached plastic to exhibit the same action.

When you fish the VMC Gliding Jig you'll want to let bait fall on slack line allowing it to realize it's full action. As many anglers are aware, fish seem to bite most often as a lure if falling to the bottom; a reaction triggered by a number of instinctual habits. With this jig, you're not just going to have a simple fall, the entire way to the bottom the plastic will shake just begging nearby fish to come take a look. In addition to the action on the fall, the jig will also display a similar shimmy when retrieving it in causing any plastic to embody a swimming motion whether it is design to or not.

The VMC Gliding Jig can be fished with or without plastic for just about any species of fish on the planet - freshwater, saltwater - all predatory species will relate to the action that is similar to many types of forage. The jig is constructed without lead and includes a fine double hook bait keeper.

Types of Gliding Jig

The VMC Gliding Jig comes in two different models - an Oklahoma or Willow style. The Oklahoma blade is intended for deeper water because it displays a shorter, less concave or flatter bend to it that enables it to sink a little bit quicker. Alternatively, the Willow style is for shallower water because it sinks just a bit slower and remains higher in water column as you retrieve it.

We offer the VMC Gliding Jig in two models: Oklahoma and Willow in two sizes of each: 1/8oz and 3/16oz. All models built around a 1/0 wide gap hook. Quantity: 2pk.

4 of 5 Unique Jig June 7, 2017
Reviewer: Sean Brown from Santa Rosa, CA United States  
Skeptical of the design but always willing to try new things to enhance our pastime. I tried this in 2 colors. It flutters nicely and is slow to sink giving it a nice decent. Definitely worth adding one to your collection for a unique way way catch the fishes eye.

2 of 5 Out of stock September 12, 2016
Reviewer: Lee from Wisconsin  
I was disappointed that I was able to order it when it was out of stock.  Monster was great at communicating this after I placed the order and I was refunded the value of the item.

3 of 5 Neat design August 12, 2016
Reviewer: Randy Walker - RBBASS from Roseville, CA United States  
Have not used yet but can't wait to fish these around Clear Lake docks. This should give a different look that the fish don't usually see... Could be a little hidden gem.

5 of 5 Awesom jig that proforms like a spoon. January 19, 2016
Reviewer: Martin from Wisconsin  
The VMC Gliding Jig works very much like a flutter spoon. The only difference is that a small plastic bait can be rigged from the keeper to the hook. The Roboworm straight tail is my first choice because of their color selection and softness. This softness comes to life as the jig falls. Other baits that work great are the Zoom Swamp Crawler, Zoom Tiny Brush Hog, Berkley 3" Pit Boss, and 3",4" curly tail crappie grubs. This bait opens the door for many presentations. Swimming, stroking, pitching, vertical jigging, and yo-yoing just to name a few. This bait can be fished all year long because of it's diversity. Fast jerks while watching the line on the fall for "jumps" then setting the hook seems to be the key for me. Good Fishing !

3 of 5 A good idea, but... November 17, 2015
Reviewer: Darrel Thomas/darrelthomasfishing.com from Mesquite, TX United States  
The hook on these jigs as way too small.  it may work with 4" worms or something similar in size.  But I don't think the hook up ratio will be there when using bigger, thicker plastics due to the hook size.
