The Clam Maggot Drop jig has a slightly off balance tungsten body, oriented to produce a vertical presentation. It's built to fish heavy and get you up and down fast. Punches through slush you left in the hole on purpose. As you pound it, looking for the killer cadence, it wobbles a bit, giving off an air of vulnerability.
