BEMIDJI, Minn. (July 21, 2022) – The godfathers of modern jig technology offer a host of new jigs designed specifically for largemouth bass, spotted bass, and smallmouth bass. Meticulously crafted for tactical techniques, Northland’s new assortment covers a mix of applications, from weedless gliding through greenery, to stealth football and small profile handstands on the bottom.

The entire Elite Series collection is forged on premium Gamakatsu hooks. This means the best yarn for strength and consistency. The best hardening, so they don’t break or straighten. And best of all, the result of Gamakatsu’s proprietary sharpening process.

Here is a brief overview of the Elite series. Watch for in-depth details in the coming weeks.
