Jigging – the nylon tail is designed to pulse around the 9” fluttering grub tail as it is jigged, this combination working best with a slow pitch jigging technique. Try and use the lightest jig possible so that the jig is trailing behind the boat at no more than a 20 degree angle (off vertical), if it is planing up behind the boat, use a heavier version.
This jig is ideal for dropping to the bottom, winding it up slightly, and then leaving the rod in the rod holder, allowing the natural rock of the boat to do the work. You can then work a more active jig / bucktail / plastic on a second, hand-held rod.
If you run out of replacement grub tails, a thin belly strip (skin on) from a fish such as a mackerel, tuna, trevally or a skinned octopus leg, trailing from the bend of the hook, make a great alternative. Secondly, sharpen the hook point before use to maximise your chances of a positive hook set when a fish strikes.
