Jig – What is it?
Jig fishing, or vertical jig fishing, which is very popular today, has been long widely practiced in Japan, and allows catching of a wide variety of fish.
The jig is done from a boat. It is deep-sea fishing, from depths of 20 to over 150 meters with sealed metal lures called jigs which sink to the bottom before a surge, oscillating vertically. The special profile of the jigs allows the butterflies to move under water during the descent. Profiling particular JIGS (there are dozens of profiles all different from each other and weights ranging from 150 to 800 g) allows them to flutter in the water during the descent. One can explore, a large column of water with the jig.
With the specific equipment developed, especially in Japan, the jig allows exploration of deeper zones and subject to strong currents that are little exploited by other forms of fishing. The jig can make fishing a incredible fishing days, but we should be careful not to fish into areas designated as refuges for species conservation. Also, try to release the fish that have not reached reproductive size.
Jig catches are most often taken during the ascent and cause violent departure, the brake must be on tight. The battle that follows is very intense and your first trophy jig will undoubtedly leave a lasting memory for you that will appeal to others
The jig is constantly busy. Depending on the fish sought with the jig, the animation of the metal lure will differ in its magnitude. Specifically, for sea-bottom fish, such as amberjack, grouper or snapper, it will flow up the jig to a height of ten or fifteen feet from the bottom. Thus, the jig can get the fish from wherever it is found.
