Jig: fishing

Jig fishing quickly spread among fans spinning fishing. The reason for this relative cheapness of the lure and be able to apply any type of water. The jig consists of a jig head (the ball of lead from soldered hook) and a removable bait made of silicone or any other material. The bait is put on the hook, so that one is located closer to the tail and "looked" up. The leash or fishing line is tied by a special ring located in the cargo.

The choice of jig head

The right choice of the required jig head depends on two main parameters: the weight and shape. The weight varies from 1 to 100 grams and is determined depending on the type of fishing and conditions of the specific reservoir. For example, when a high flowrate you must increase the weight of the sinker below the bait wasn't down to the side. However, the slower the bait down to the bottom of the pond, the bites will be more. Therefore, if You notice that the bait sinks faster 5 seconds is the signal to replace the at least a light jig-head.

The most common shapes are spherical. It is versatile and can be used in all waters. However, in contact with the bottom of the lure leans on its side. Jig head in the form of "iron" has a flat bottom, so not able to sink in the soft soil types, thereby supporting the bait with the hook always in a good condition. Oval sinkers contributes to increased stability of the bait on the bottom.

Classic fishing technique

View the methodology used fishing jig is defined by the type of habitat, weather conditions, and fish which are hunted. Very often be used simultaneously by several techniques. While jig fishing involves the experiment, therefore, the angler should be able to perform all the main types of transactions.

The most applied and popular method for fishing the jig is a classic step. It is performed thus:

  1. 1. Runs the casting. It is necessary to wait until the bait reaches the bottom (determined by the slack in fishing line).
  2. 2. Spinning is held at an angle of 45 degrees, and there are 3-4 fast turn coil.
  3. 3. Waits the moment when the lure again comes down to the bottom of the reservoir and repeated the retrieve.
  4. 4. The chosen angle allows you to effectively hooking the fish by the movement of spinning to 90 degrees. Should avoid undercuts "the head", it's not always spinning will be able to withstand this load.
  5. 5. To undermine the lure of the spinning top must be held close to the place where drops the bait parallel to the water level. Select fishing line, spinning is translated perpendicular to the plane of water. Waits the moment of lowering the bait to the bottom, then the rod is lowered to 60 degrees and gradually selected line. The procedure is repeated.
  6. 6. The bite is fixed by bending the rod and/or line tension. Most bites occurs at the moment of the free lowering of the jigs, and therefore, you should choose the most balanced weight of the lure.
