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

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
