Trolling – a good option for trolling at 8-10 knots when moving between spots or searching for new ground. The heavier the head, the better it hangs in the water at speed, 4oz (112gram) versions are ideal for this. 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 – the 4oz (112gram) version is at the upper end of what you might cast for high speed spin. The 8/0HD hook means you can confidently fish them on a 50lb braid spinning outfit. 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.
Jigging – add a 6-7 inch plastic to the hook of the jig and secure it on the stainless steel keeper hook cast into the back of the jig head. Suited to a variety of jigging styles, this technique is very effective on rankin cod, coral trout etc.
Bottom Fishing – a dynamite technique for all sorts of demersals, is to add a trailing sliver of fish flesh (skin on) or a fresh occy leg to the hook of the jig (awesome on dhufish). 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, even leaving your rod in the rod holder if there is a bit of chop/boat rock to work the jig. If you don’t hook up, crank the jig back up at speed in a bid to entice a passing pelagic.
The saltwater Mustad HD hooks used in these jigs are new, out of the box sharp, but they aren’t fishing sharp. Make sure you touch the points up with a sharpening stone before use (and during hectic fishing sessions).
