This pack was designed in collaboration with one of the Kimberley region's premier fishing guides, Robert 'Bluey' Vaughan. Bluey operates his sportfishing operation from his One Tree Beach fishing camp in the pristine, north Kimberley.

This pack of jigs will have you covered from flicking bucktails for shallow water barra/jacks/fingermark, high speed spinning for macks/tuna/trevally/queensfish and jigging for deeper water blackjew/fingermark.

TECHNIQUES:

Trolling (HH)– a good option for trolling at 6-8 knots when moving between spots or trying to match the hatch on pelagics such as feeding tuna. Don’t troll directly through schools of feeding fish, stick to the outskirts and ideally cross in front of whatever direction they are heading. If trolling more than one lure, keep trolling for 50 metres or so after you first hook up in an effort to elicit more strikes and load up more rods.

High Speed Spin (HH) – the 2oz (56gram) and 2.5oz (70gram) versions are ideal for belting out from the rocks at places like Quobba and cranking back at high speed for shark mackerel and mackerel tuna. You can search for fish in the water column by letting the jig sink for varying amounts of time before you start the retrieve. Keep varying the depth/sink time until you find the fish. Smaller sizes are ideal for high speed spinning from a boat if chasing fussy pelagics such as tuna feeding on small bait.

Cast, flick, retrieve (BB) – a great technique when drifting over a midwater lump or drifting over shallow reef/rubble, just match the water depth to an appropriately weighted jig. Cast the jig away from the boat, let it sink to the bottom, then flick it forward with a flick of the rod, wind up the slack as you drop the rod and repeat, the hit normally coming on the pause/drop when you wind up the slack.

Jigging (BB, NB) – the bucktail or long nylon tail is designed to pulse behind the jig as it is jigged. Try and use the lightest jig possible (within reason), if necessary cast the jig forward of the direction you’re drifting, strip line quickly and then bounce the jig just off the bottom as you drift over it. Once the jig is trailing behind the boat at a 20 degree angle, crank it back up and repeat the process.
