Whats your Favorite Jigging technique's?

Recommended Posts

What jig method is working the best for pan fish?

I like a 1.5 foot fast up stroke, then a slow flutter back to my original depth.

I like to lift around a foot and a half to two feet, and let it fall slow, until I mark a fish, the I move to a slow short bounce, and then sit still. If I can't get any response I will lift it slowly to see if I can get them to follow it. Not sure what kind of jiggin you would call it but it works for me, maybe someone has a better idea. using an underwater camera has been a really good learning experience.

A favorite? Well, if you insist...Short, subtle twitches of the rod tip well above the fish you're marking.

I agree with Otter! I've always had most of my success with short subtle twitches, varying the speed until I find what works best. Although, when I'm not marking anything I will use a more violent 6-10 inch up down motion. Sometimes it works to attract fish, especially with a buckshot type jigging spoon. Once the marks show up though, it is back to a more subtle approach.

Forcing fish out of their comfort zone (i.e. well up the water column) is ultimately the name of the game. grin.gif

I have found a techinique that has worked for me. let your presentation fall slowly to the bottom and then lift it 6-12 inches and hold it still.I also bring many different types and sizes of lures and change until I find what works best. hope this helps and good luck fishing.

Sometimes getting the fish out of their "comfort zone" makes them bite a little bit faster. I just don't think they like to set out in the open looking at food when they might be food, so they bite!

that is a basic explaination of the technique.and yes I use a vexlar.it is a winter version of a of open water jig and live bait presentation.but more importantly I will change the size/shape/color or techinque until I find what the fish want.this aproach has helped me catch many walleyes this winter. smile.gif

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.
    • Rick Bancroft
      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
