Learn How To Fish With A Jigging Lure
Various lures can be used during fishing, each with their own dedicated technique and their benefits. Today, we take a closer look at the jigging lure, which can be used to catch many different fish. Read our detailed guide below to get the right gear and to use the right technique when at your regular fishing spot.
Which Fishing Rod Do I Require For A Jigging Lure?
When you fish with a jigging lure, you usually require a heavy-duty finish rod, this ensures that you can catch heavier fish. A heavy-duty rod can also be beneficial when you fish at sea, since your line will not be disturbed when encountering seaweeds.
Anaconda also stocks a range of fishing rods. If you still require a heavy-duty rod for your next fishing trip, we recommend checking out our catalogue for our full range of heavy-duty rods, available for amazing prices.
Please note that you will also require a good fishing line before you start using your jigging lure, this not only to complement your heavy-duty rod, but also to ensure you can catch those heavier fish without your fishing line breaking. It also makes the reeling in process a little easier.
Which Jigging Lures Tend To Be Most Efficient?
As we briefly mentioned already, fishing lures come in many shapes, sizes, and colours. So, even when you look into jigging lures, you will notice that they have a variety of colours and even designs. That being said, the jigging lure does have some characteristic elements that must be present.
The jigging lure is characterised by a sinker and a connected hook. The body of the jigging lure usually resembles an actual fish, as this is more attractive for the fish you are trying to catch. As a result of their design, the jigging lures will almost always create a rather jerky movement in the water. Once again, this is quite attractive for a variety of fish, who will be more likely caught with this kind of lure.
When you just start out with jigging lures, it is usually a good idea to obtain some jigging lures with different colours and designs. Depending on the spot you go fishing, some designs can be more efficient than others. So, by obtaining several jigging lures, you can be sure you will have some that are attractive for the fish you are trying to catch.
What Is The Most Effective Method To Fish With A Jigging Lure?
Once your jigging lure is in the water, you will need to wait for a little while, this until the lure has reached the bottom of the water. Of course, if you are casting in the ocean, just let the lure sink down for some time before you start the snap and popping process.
Snapping and popping is a specific movement made by your wrist. So, when you fish with this kind of lure, you will be moving your wrist instead of reeling in your line. Because of the unique movement, you are more likely to catch the attention of larger fish.
Naturally, if you are not that proficient at snapping and popping, you may want to try the so-called "swimming" technique, this technique is basically reeling in your line slowly. To execute this technique efficiently, always hold your rod at a sixty-degree angle.
When you have caught something, you will be able to tell by your fishing line. In fact, your line will move the surface of the water where your lure is situated. In some cases, you will not feel it on the rod itself, but you will notice it by the water alone, this is why it is important to keep a close eye on the water surface.
As with all fishing, it is vital to keep a good hold of your fishing rod. While it may be tempting to put your rod on the side when you have not caught something for some time, fish can be remarkably fast when they want to be. The last thing you want is a fish getting away with your rod and your finest jigging lure. So, always guard your rod to ensure your equipment does not escape with the fish.
