fishing tips and tricks

 Category:  Freshwater Bass Fishing Tips

Tip&Trick Description 1: Jigs come in all sorts of shapes, colors, sizes, and even skirt materials. There are a bunch of different ways to fish them as well. However, to be able to catch them when the fishing is tough, you have to be very versatile. In this article, I will go through different ways of fishing jigs and I will begin to get you acquainted with this wonderful lure called a jig, in this little guide called “Jiggin’ It”.



Let me first give you a little bit of “background” about jigs. Jigs come made with many different kinds of materials. Just to name a few hair, tinsel and silicone. However, in this guide we will mostly be talking about silicone jigs. Silicone jigs are much easier too fish. Being that when they get wet, they become waterproof making them easier to slide through thick vegetation. To help aid the jig going through the thick milfoil some people use scent.



Jigs come in many different shapes and size, they even come with different shaped heads for different types of applications. They come made with a flipping, swimming, and even a stand-up type head. They also come in an array of different weight heads.



Jigs even come in countless colors and even different shades. It is best that when you first start out fishing a jig you should stick to basic colors. Some of the basic jig colors would include brown and orange, moss green and even black and blue.



When selecting a jig by its size you want to use as less weight as possible. Using less weight will give the jig a more realistic action and presentation. You also need less weight because bass will normally hit the jig when it is on the fall, and using less weight will help the jig fall slower. While we are talking about fall rate lets talk a little about jig trailers. Plastic trailers work great for cooler water, when the fish are more active. Jigs with pork are a deadly combination when the water temperature drops below 60. When you pick a trailer, you should keep in mind to match the trailer color to the color of the jigs skirt.



Now lets get into how to fish a jig. There are many different ways to fish them. One of the more popular ways to fish them is to do a hop and swim type retrieve. When you do this, you should make a long cast and then let the jig rest on the bottom for a few seconds, and then slowly lift your rod tip and let the jig fall back to the bottom. Then after a few hops you swim the jig a few feet, then begin to hop the jig again. This hop and swim method has produced greatly for many people all throughout the country.



Another way to fish a jig is to just hop the jig on the bottom or even drag it. However, one of the deadliest ways to fish a jig is to swim it close to the bottom or above a weed line. A seven-foot heavy action rod will give the jig enough action to entice big bass, be sure to pick a rod with a soft tip and enough backbone to horse the big boys out of the thick stuff.



The last technique I am going to cover is flipping and pitching. To do this you should flip the jig into weed pockets or into shoreline cover. When you do this, a good choice is a seven and a half foot heavy action rod and thirty-five pound monofilament. The heavy action rod will be stout enough to pull a five pound bass out the roughest spots you can flip your jig into.



This is just a little guide on how to fish a jig. If you experiment with different ways to fish them and you find out which technique the bass wants, you will have a killer day out on the water!

Anglers
As the west coast of the United States continues to be hammered by a series of back
to back powerful storms the Southern Baja California region has been enjoying warmer
than usual mild winter time conditions. There have been scattered clouds and high
temperatures are hovering around 80 degrees. Winds have been moderate, ocean
conditions have been comfortable for anglers, though the south wind is predicted to
gust up to 20 miles per hour the next couple of days. Water temperatures are
averaging 75 degrees throughout most of the area, this is several degrees higher
than normal for this time of year. Live bait has consisted mainly of caballito,
sardinas and sardineta, with mackerel being very scarce.
Billfish action slowed down, below normal for this period, charters targeting
striped marlin worked hard to catch one marlin and multiple billfish catches were
not common. It was strange that sailfish were still being hooked into on a fairly
regular basis. Casting live baits to tailing marlin was the most common method,
other boats did hook fish while drifting live baits deeper in the areas where they
had seen free jumping stripers.
Not much inshore action now, sierra and roosterfish were scattered and not numerous.
Bottom fishing was not producing consistent numbers of fish either, a few yellowtail
were starting to show in the reports, so hopefully more of these jacks will migrate
into the area and start providing a welcome option for anglers.
Yellowfin tuna were schooling on the Gordo Banks, fish ranged in size from 10
pounds to over 100 pounds. Lots of skipjack and pesky seagulls were making anglers
work that much harder to hook into the yellowfin tuna. Most strikes were coming
while drift fishing with sardinas or chunk bait from skipjack and sardineta. The
pressure also increased on these fishing grounds since this was one of the few areas
where there was a good chance at catching tuna.
Dorado were found spread out through most of the zone, being found close to shore,
as well as offshore. Striking on a wide range of baits and lures, most of these fish
were smaller schooling size fish under 15 pounds, but there were some exceptions of
fish over 25 pounds being landed.

This winter has had its share of unusually activity, among them being the
availability of nicer sized tuna on the Gordo Banks and the fact that there are
still wahoo holding in the area. The few wahoo that have been accounted for recently
have preferred striking on bait versus lures. Rigged dead baits have probably
accounted for more fish than live baits, with sardinetas being their favorite, more
wahoo were hooked mid morning after the surface of the ocean had a chance to warm
some than early in the morning when the wahoo were more in a hibernation mode.

The combined panga fleet launching from La Playita/Puerto Los Cabos sent out
approximately 58 charters for the past week, with anglers accounting for a fish
count of: 7 sailfish, 6 striped marlin, 9 wahoo, 118 dorado, 83 yellowfin tuna, 11
roosterfish, 29 sierra, 13 amberjack, 15 bonito, 10 cabrilla, 7 yellowtail and 16
pargo.

Good Fishing, Eric
