The Gamakatsu Finesse Jig Head is the tool to reach for when you’re thinking ‘Ned Rig’. It is all about precise positioning and presentation of pint-sized soft plastics.

The spring keeper holds the bait securely and helps keep the plastic tight against the flat side of the jig head. It creates a slow, controlled, gliding fall and a subtle hop, crawl and jig presentation that drives finicky bass nuts.

A stout No. 1 hook allows failsafe hook penetration with the lightest of line. Unpainted heads facilitate trouble-free customization. The Finesse Jig Head is available in 1/16, 3/32 ,1/8oz sizes with a No.1 hook.

Meanwhile, Gamakatsu’s Finesse Jig Head Offset is a new variation of the Ned Rig with a twist. The offset eye is countersunk into the bullet-shaped jig head, which allows for a clean profile sure to fool educated bass. The z-bend in the hook makes it easy to thread plastics on the hook and rig it Texas-style.

A sharp premium forged steel Gamakatsu hook ensures that when a bass breathes on your offering, it gets hooked. The Finesse Jig Head Offset is available in 3/32, 1/83/16 and ¼oz sizes with a 1/0 hook.

Not all finesse fishing is done in shallow water. The Bottom Knocker Offset Jig is a deepwater version. The head is a hybrid of a football/round style head designed to produce a tantalizing stand up action to mimic a defensive crawdad or feeding minnow.

The recessed eye permits the jig to slip through rocks and vegetation. A sharp premium-forged Gamakatsu hook means bites end up in the live well. This is available in 3/8, ½, 5/8 and 3/4oz size with a 1/0 hook.
