The Alabama Shake Swim Jig Fishing with Wes Logan

Tue, September 20, 2022

Once a closely-guarded secret of shallow water masters, the "Alabama Shake" is a unique way to fish a swim jig around shallow cover. Alabama native and Bassmaster Elite, Wes Logan, is here to let us in on the secret of the Alabama Shake swim jig technique. With a slightly longer rod than typical for swim jig fishing, Wes Logan prefers a 7'6" medium-heavy rod that allows the angler to impart a shaking motion while reeling the bait back in. The rod tip held high gives your swim jig a more erratic, strike-inducing appearance underwater. The Alabama Shake swim jig technique was key to helping Wes win the 2021 Bassmaster Elite Series event on Neely Henry!
