fishing tips and tricks
 Aug 12, 2003; 10:50AM - Jiggin' It

Tip&Trick Description 1: Jigs come in all sorts of shapes, colors, sizes, and even skirt materials. There are a bunch of different ways to fish them as well. However, to be able to catch them when the fishing is tough, you have to be very versatile. In this article, I will go through different ways of fishing jigs and I will begin to get you acquainted with this wonderful lure called a jig, in this little guide called “Jiggin’ It”.

Let me first give you a little bit of “background” about jigs. Jigs come made with many different kinds of materials. Just to name a few hair, tinsel and silicone. However, in this guide we will mostly be talking about silicone jigs. Silicone jigs are much easier too fish. Being that when they get wet, they become waterproof making them easier to slide through thick vegetation. To help aid the jig going through the thick milfoil some people use scent.

Jigs come in many different shapes and size, they even come with different shaped heads for different types of applications. They come made with a flipping, swimming, and even a stand-up type head. They also come in an array of different weight heads.

Jigs even come in countless colors and even different shades. It is best that when you first start out fishing a jig you should stick to basic colors. Some of the basic jig colors would include brown and orange, moss green and even black and blue.

When selecting a jig by its size you want to use as less weight as possible. Using less weight will give the jig a more realistic action and presentation. You also need less weight because bass will normally hit the jig when it is on the fall, and using less weight will help the jig fall slower. While we are talking about fall rate lets talk a little about jig trailers. Plastic trailers work great for cooler water, when the fish are more active. Jigs with pork are a deadly combination when the water temperature drops below 60. When you pick a trailer, you should keep in mind to match the trailer color to the color of the jigs skirt.

Now lets get into how to fish a jig. There are many different ways to fish them. One of the more popular ways to fish them is to do a hop and swim type retrieve. When you do this, you should make a long cast and then let the jig rest on the bottom for a few seconds, and then slowly lift your rod tip and let the jig fall back to the bottom. Then after a few hops you swim the jig a few feet, then begin to hop the jig again. This hop and swim method has produced greatly for many people all throughout the country.

Another way to fish a jig is to just hop the jig on the bottom or even drag it. However, one of the deadliest ways to fish a jig is to swim it close to the bottom or above a weed line. A seven-foot heavy action rod will give the jig enough action to entice big bass, be sure to pick a rod with a soft tip and enough backbone to horse the big boys out of the thick stuff.

The last technique I am going to cover is flipping and pitching. To do this you should flip the jig into weed pockets or into shoreline cover. When you do this, a good choice is a seven and a half foot heavy action rod and thirty-five pound monofilament. The heavy action rod will be stout enough to pull a five pound bass out the roughest spots you can flip your jig into.

This is just a little guide on how to fish a jig. If you experiment with different ways to fish them and you find out which technique the bass wants, you will have a killer day out on the water!

Report Description: Capt. George Landrum

Fly Hooker Sportfishing


WEATHER: It was partly cloudy for most of the week, or partly sunny for the optimists. At the tail end of the week the clouds moved in and it became very gloomy, but warm since the clouds trapped the heat. No rain arrived with the cloud cover. Our average night time temperature was 67 degrees and our day time highs were in the high 80s.

WATER: There was a band of warm water in the 74 degree range along the Pacific coast for most of the week, and it extended off shore only a few miles. Once out there, it dropped and was averaging 71 degrees. There was a cold spot outside the Golden Gate Bank that had temperatures in the high 60s for several days. On the Cortez side of the Cape we were looking at temperatures in the 74 range almost everywhere. At the end of the week the surface temperatures were higher as the cloud cover trapped the heat.

BAIT: Almost all Mackerel this week with a few Sardinas as well. Big baits were $2 each while the Sardinas were $20-25 a scoop.


BILLFISH: The week started out with a bang on the Striped Marlin as they seemed to be almost everywhere. The frustrating thing for a lot of boats was that while they could be seen all over the place, it was not easy finding fish that were hungry. A lot of Captains said there was too much bait out there and it took a while to find a fish that was not already stuffed! It was not uncommon to see 30 fish a trip, sometimes a lot more than that, and if you were lucky you found a few that would bite. The luckier boats caught and released up to 5 fish per day while the average was more like on, maybe two fish hooked out of 25-30 fish that bait was tossed to. These fish are averaging a bit on the small side with most in the 90-120 pound class, but there are a few nice ones in the 140-160 pound range being hooked as well. Live Pacific Green-backed Mackerel has been the bait of choice, tossed in front of moving fish.

YELLOWFIN TUNA: There were more Yellowfin found this week than there were last week, but the big ones have not shown up yet. Almost all the Yellowfin caught this week were football fish or smaller school fish, the largest fish I saw was around 40 pounds. There were reports of a few large fish found out past the San Jaime Banks, but I never did find out who caught them. The Fish closer to home were found in Porpoise pods and bit fairly well on small feathers. The best action this week seemed to be on the Pacific side about 15 miles out, but there was some good action had as well on the Sea of Cortez up around the Gorda Banks. At the Gorda, Sardinas were the ticket for a good catch and for some reason the fish were just a bit larger up there.

DORADO: Find something floating in the water that has been there for a while and you were almost guaranteed to find a Dorado or two around it, but unless you worked very close to shore, that was the only way you could find one. The open ocean, debris associated Dorado seemed to average about 25 pounds and the inshore fish averaged about 12 pounds, but there were twice as many of them inshore! Small feathers trolled at slightly higher than normal speeds accounted for a lot of the inshore fish while live bait did best off shore. There were also a few stray Dorado up to 50 pounds caught by anglers soaking live bait deep for Striped Marlin.

WAHOO: The new moon kicked up the bite on Wahoo this week, but there were no really large fish found. The best action came from near shore on the Sea of Cortez side and was concentrated on the Red Hill area and Gray Rock. Almost all the action took place in less than 50 fathoms of water and some boats were able to get three fish a day, with the average size around 35 pounds. Live bait was the best, but only if they were Mackerel Scad, locally called Chilwillies (sp?)

INSHORE: Inshore fishing remained slow this week but there are some Sierra beginning to show up. A few scattered Roosterfish and Jack Crevalle round up the major species caught next to the beach and most of the Pangas have been heading out a bit farther looking for Dorado and Striped Marlin.

NOTES: This week was pretty good all around for fishing, but not everyone lucked out. For those of you who are longtime fishermen, you know that you dont catch fish all the time, but you always hope that the bad luck will be on some one else! When it does happen to you, hey, its the way it goes some times. I can understand someone who has no experience fishing getting a bit upset over not getting a fish, but to have a supposed experienced angler ask for money back or future considerations because they did not get a fish really upsets me. Hey, you hooked into a Marlin; the fish jumped and threw the hook. Sorry about that, but it happens. No sour grapes and better luck next time. Sigh. Anyway, this weeks report was written to the jazz-fusion music of the Danny Godinez Band on the Live in Anchorage II CD. Self produced; the album is great music that kept me going this morning, tapping my feet as my fingers danced on the keyboard. You can check them out at
Until next week, Tight Lines.
