- Designed with a sleek minnow head & features a “thumper” belly blade that flickers, flashes & flutters to lure fish and entice ‘em to strike
- Blood red “Lip-Stick®” wounded bait hooks stimulate the bite
- A specially designed Barb-Wire® bait-holding collar securely holds live bait & soft plastic trailers on hook
A proven producer of crappies, perch, walleyes, bass and trout. Tip with live bait and soft-plastic trailers. Cast and retrieve or troll at a slow to moderate speed, slow-rolling, fluttering and raising the jig for extra attraction. Bursts of speed may also trigger strikes. Also great for vertical jigging and drifting.
THUMPER® JIG Reviews
Walleyes can’t resist
Posted by Bob Mietz on Mar 7th 2018
It’s time to resupply the jigs for my annual fishing trip to Ontario, Canada. I have found these jigs to be high quality. The hooks themselves allow me to use various sorts of grubs, etc... on the jig to a great deal of success. The hooks are also high quality and never break off. I have used quite a few variety of jigs but these with the spinner set up are my go to jig.
Could be a great bait!

The Northland Thumper jigs would be great out of the package if they came with #2 or #3 willow leaf blades attached to a ball bearing swivel. The hooks are decent and get the job done but a strong light wire black nickel hook option would be awesome. Nonetheless I still buy these and modify them to my preference. I remove the little colorado blade and attach a ball bearing swivel then from there it gets terminated to a #2 hammered willow leaf blade for the 1/8oz and a #3 hammered willow leaf blade for the 1/4 oz and 3/8 oz sizes. This has proven to be a deadly underspin on the largemouth bass in my local lake.
Well made and catches fish

The Thumper is a quality jig that is not only built well but catches fish. I love the keeper barb which works well for adding a plastic trailer or piece of night crawler.

Great jig for multi-species

I've used the Thumper jig with plenty of success over the last several years. It's caught everything from perch and crappie to walleyes and pike. The blade is a great attractor especially when paired with an Impulse plastic. You can't go wrong having some of these in your tackle box.

My go to jig for pitching and vertical jigging, always the first one in the water. The blade brings that extra something that seems to catch more fish than other jigs.
