I seldom discuss basics with anglers anymore. It just seems like a lot of the fishermen I come in contact with know how to tie a knot or set up a live-bait rig. What today¹s anglers want is information that will take them to another level. They don¹t want to go fishing and not catch something. They see us competitive anglers going out on their favorite body of water and even in the worst conditions catching fish. They want to know how we do this. The truth is, we pay close attention to the fine details of a presentation and use the little secrets we develop in our travels. I'll let you in on some advanced jigging secrets and you¹ll know what I mean.
If you watch how fish react to a jig you will understand that presentation
can be everything. Do you hip-hop the jig or drag it. Swim
it or snap it. Consider this. If you are fishing in an area
where the primary forage base is perch or crayfish you want to keep the
jig on the bottom and drag and hop it. Fish will follow a jig as
it's dragged over the rocks and rubble and when it registers as something
to eat, the fish will suck this bait-tipped lure right off the bottom.
I have yet to see a jig big enough that a walleye or bass cannot just inhale
it off of a hard bottom.
I incorporate fluorocarbon line to my jigging approach. I don¹t want to give that fish any reason not to take a bait. If there is any conditioning that creates a line shy fish then the fluorocarbon line will remedy that. It¹s amazing how many more fish I am now catching since I put the fluorocarbon on my jigging rod.
I have plenty more secrets for jigging. In the next few weeks
I¹ll be posting them on www.lesmonster.com.
