High Speed Spin – the 2oz (56gram) weight makes it 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.

Bottom Fishing – a dynamite technique for all sorts of demersals, is to add a trailing sliver of fish flesh (skin on) to the hook of the jig. The secret is to have the bait trailing out the back of the skirt in a straight line. Drop to the bottom and work it quite subtly, if you don’t hook up, crank the jig back up at speed in a bid to entice a passing pelagic.


Shark mackerel love all-white jigs. The secret to catching them is to be winding fast enough to have a bubble trail smoking out behind the jig. These jigs are ideal for casting into the prevailing onshore breezes which plaque Quobba during late November/early December, when the shark mackerel traditionally run.
