You have heard of it, but can’t quite put your finger on it…right? The Medlock Double Guard Jig sounds so familiar, but where have you heard that name before? Medlock?…Medlock??…Medlock??? OH YA! Brandon Medlock! The two time Okeechobee EverStart Champion! Not only can he fish and WIN, but it runs in his veins!
The Medlock Double Guard Jig is a family secret that Joe Medlock has been pouring for friends, family and local Florida anglers for decades. Available in 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 3/4, 1 and 1 1/32, the secret of the Double Guard Jig is in the design of the bulky triangular shaped head, which allows it easier to fall through heavy cover easier and of course, the double protection that the double weed guard gives the massive 6/0 Gamakatsu heavy wire hook. Since it was designed by Florida fishermen, the Double Guard Jig comes in three colors; Black/Blue, June Bug and Watermelon, which are three of the most popular colors used in Florida for Buckets.
Each and every one of these jigs are hand poured to perfection and since Brandon Medlock won back to back EverStart on Okeechobee and recently finishing 5th on Lake Seminol using the Medlock Double Guard Jig, tackle stores can’t keep them on the shelves. The explosion in popularity of the Double Guard Jig has created domino effect, as now the Medlock family offers Shaky head jigs, Bullet weights and Football head jigs.
Using this product all last season, in our experience the Double Guard Jig is a big fish bait and is great choice for junk fishing in heavy slop. We tested out the 3/4oz and 1oz Black Blue jig last year and it does everything it’s advertised to do! If you are on the water looking for big buckets or you need a kicker to make your bag, the Medlock Double Guard Jig is one of the baits you need to turn to.
