The Mendota Rig has a compact body designed specifically for the hook and sinker of the rig. The lifelike action triggers strikes and can be used in multiple applications: vertical jigging, flipping wood or pulling through weeds. The reverse-weight design leaves nothing but barb when the fish attacks the head of the bait, increasing hook-up percentages. Designed by tournament angler, Jim Torgerson, and powered by patented BackFlip Weedless Weights, the Mendota rig is available in a variety of colors. Includes 1 fully assembled rig (with hook and weight) and 3 extra plastics.
Weights on conventional Texas or Carolina rigs can easily snag on branches and spook fish if they hit the weight first. Jim Torgerson’s unique approach to the Mendota Rig reverses the weight distribution at the bottom of the bait for better fishing in vegetation, structure and distant pockets. When paired with our patented BackFlip Weedless Weights and perfectly sized hook, this durable rig can hook even the most leery fish. Designed for both fresh and saltwater, this all-purpose, multi-species bait comes with or without a skirt. Our patented BackFlip Weedless Weights can also be purchased separately and can be used with your favorite 4 inch plastic lure.
