Jigging – the extra long nylon tail is designed to pulse behind the jig as it is jigged, however unlike a soft plastic, the nylon tail materials resistance to damage from fish means you are always in the game, even after multiple hits on the same drift. 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.
Cast, flick, retrieve – 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.
Coloured braid is great if using the cast forward of the boat jigging technique, it makes it easy to quickly strip off the amount needed to have the jig just off the bottom.
