New bass jigs offer something for all anglers!

A slew of new jigs designed specifically for largemouth, spotted, and smallmouth bass are available from the godfathers of modern jig technology. Northland’s new collection, meticulously designed for tactical techniques, covers a wide range of applications, from weedless slithering through the greenery to stealth footballing and low profile headstands on the bottom.
The Elite Series collection is entirely forged on premium Gamakatsu hooks. That is, the best wire in terms of strength and consistency. They have the best tempering, so they will not break or straighten. The best part is that it is the result of Gamakatsu’s proprietary sharpening process.


If you’re not in the weeds on many lakes and reservoirs, and even rivers, you’re not on fish. The undeniable problem is becoming entangled in the vegetation before a bass seals the deal. Northland’s category-defining Elite Series Cabbage Crusher Jig is the solution. Its scooped, nosecone head and 60-degree line-tie allow it to slink through weeds, and the double-wire titanium weed guard protects the hook from stalks and leaves. The wire-keeper and moulded holder of the jig work together to keep your preferred plastics in place.

  • Colours: Black, Green Pumpkin, Silver Shiner, and Rusty Craw

  • Hooks: Gamakatsu 4/0 (3/16- and ¼-ounce) Gamakatsu 5/0 (3/8- and ½-ounce)

Football head jigs are a go-to in the boats of everyday anglers, especially early and late in the season and anytime on deep, clear bodies of water. It’s a fact that football heads deflect and work better over rocks than standard round heads. The new Elite Series Finesse Football Jig comes in three sizes and features a narrow but tough and razor-sharp 1/0 Gamakatsu hook. The Finesse Football Jig is the ideal size for smaller finesse soft plastics such as Ned-style baits and smaller creatures. It can also be outfitted with a skirt of your choice and a trailer. Anglers can also pair them with smaller swimbaits for a completely different presentation look and feel. The possibilities are limitless.

  • Colours: Black, Green Pumpkin, Silver Shiner, and Rusty Craw
  • Sizes: 3/16-, ¼-, 5/16-, and 3/8-ounce
  • Hooks: Gamakatsu 1/0
  • 3 Per Card

If you haven’t heard of a Ned Rig, you’ve been living under a rock and fishing in the Middle Ages. Ned rigging has been the hottest tactic for tripping triggers on lethargic bass and anywhere sceptical fish inhabit clear water for several years. The new Elite Series Nedster Jig from Northland has a standup, mushroom-shaped head that elevates your plastic off the bottom, making it lifelike and easy to slurp. The Nedster has a sticky wire bait keeper in addition to its ultra-strong and wickedly sharp Gamakatsu hook. The Weedless Nedster Jig has strong and long-lasting double titanium weed guards.

  • Colours: Black, Chartreuse, Green Pumpkin, and Rusty Craw
  • Sizes: 1/8-, 3/16-, ¼-, 5/16-ounce
  • Hook: Gamakatsu 1/0
  • Nedster 3 Per Card/Weedless Nedster 2 Per Card

MSRP $5.99


A “wacky rig” is an apt description. It just looks wacky. Insert a jig into the middle of a plastic and watch the worm arch lifelessly in your hand. When you put it in the water, it comes to life, pumping and undulating with the slightest twitch of the rod, driving bass insane. The new Elite Series Weedless Wacky Jig from Northland features a unique head shape that is precisely designed to operate effortlessly through the weeds. When combined with the profile’s strong double titanium weed guard, your bait will glide through even the thickest cover.

  • Colors: Black and Green Pumpkin
  • Sizes: 1/16-, 1/8-, and 3/16-ounce
  • Hook: Gamakatsu #2
  • 2 Per Card
  • MSRP $4.99
