Many fishermen moved to the slow jigging. But some only get few results. Yet, this new technique is a rare effectiveness when it is well practiced. But only if you know a few secrets!
Like so many other fishing techniques, the slow jigging comes from the Japan. Legend has it that its creator Norihiro Sato imagined after hurriedly leaving his jigging combo in a cane door to help his friend to dry a beautiful piece. Having not taken the time to bring his jig, it was still deep. By retrieving his cane, he was surprised to see that he had captured a small tuna. The only pitching caused by the swell had enough animated his jig to cause the attack of the fish. To him, it was a revelation! Starting from the observation that a jig did not need to be driven quickly to be attractive, he developed a full-fledged technique by creating a new very Spacey jigs balancing central and specific rods. Note also that the Slow Jerker Poseidons he designed for the Evergreen brand are recognized as being the best rods slow jigs in the world! Real star in the Japan, Norihiro Sato is considered to be the largest specialist of slow jigging and a true guru for all lovers of this technique. It has also been for the little frenchie that I am when I started.People like him or Totos Ogasawara became my ‘senseis’ and I wanted here to honor them for their valuable advice.
All those who have been accustomed to speed jigging with 50-80 lbs sets will have to completely reconsider the approach of their material! Indeed, one of the secrets of slow jigging is to fish the finest possible. The lure is not pulled in classic force as in jigging and the braid is not constantly in tension. But the constant control of your lure is necessary in this very fine technique. Slow jig to fish during the releases, the least strain on the wire by drift can prevent it from flowing and make it much less attractive.Conversely, a belly caused by currents cancel your animation by absorb what each of your drawn. Indeed, during the handling of a slow jig, it is towed to tens of centimeters to each Jolt and the lack of tension in your Braid may cause you to literally “pump” in the void! So this is the reason why the slow jigging requires the finest possible braid. Many spend next to good results in slow jigging because the use of a much too thick line or of poor quality. Result, it offers too much made aware and the fisherman loses contact with his jig.
As surprising as it may seem, more you will fish deep, more your braid will be fine in order to stay upright.The Japanese practicing slow jigging over 100 m deep do not hesitate to use the EP 1 (12/100). A line PE 1.5 will be a maximum (16/100). This is also the reason why they have created a new generation of even more fine and resistant braid. Thus, Daiwa has designed the Saltiga 12 strands which resistance in PE 1.5 is 31 lbs, which is considerable! We use it for more than a year and finesse as well as his sensitivity have literally changed our way of looking at the slow jigging in depths greater than 70/80 meters. We recommend warmly! Whatever your choice, prefer a minimum high-quality 8-strand braid. It must have a compact design and a finish smooth. Do not hesitate to take relatively thin diameters as slow jigging rods being progressive, they absorb very effectively rushes and head shots. Similarly, the used casting reels have a particularly progressive brake. Thus, we could see a friend take a denti of 10 kg with a braid of barely 25 lb. Use a 40 lb in slow jigging line as I have seen there is therefore no justification!
Having a good drift (0.5 to 1.5 knots) is very useful to cover a maximum of ground in search of active predators. But with the need to be upright for a good animation of slow jig, it will be necessary to launch your drift downstream. As long as it runs and reaches the bottom, the boat is moving to the area where you planned it. Anticipating your drift speed and by calculating the distance from the depth well, therefore possible to begin to retrieve your lure being perfectly vertical.
Beware, however when you take your jig because bait casting used in slow jigging reels are not designed to launch, and it is common that they block or braid wig while the lure is in vol. hold always your cane with both hands because it could escape you being driven by the inertia of a jig from 150 to 200 g thrown forward. A friend saw whole to 800 euros go to water as a result of a blockage of his reel while conducting a shot one-handed. By 80 meters, needless to say that there never could get it back!
These reels have an additional brake on the side that controls the speed of rotation of the coil. It will be necessary to adjust very precisely in order to avoid this type of blockages or wigs. Note also that this device does not have a control with your thumb to avoid any proliferation of the braid during the launch.Finally, slow jigging rods are not designed to propel decoys, and still less of jigs that can exceed 200 g, we recommend a launch under cane done loose and soft. You will thus limit this type of incident.
Slow jig in power fishing
Once at the bottom, many anglers let down their slow jig it having moved up to ten meters. Except in the event of lost keys, this technique is still not the best. Down into the layers of water, your lure is visible at great distances by predators present. If it was not attacked during the first bottom-up animation, he has even less chance of being second or third down on the same spot. Except in the specific case of the breams who appreciate focus near the substrate, the majority of the catch usually occurs as soon as the first ascent. Recovering your jig at once slow and raising, drifting makes you explore a new area tens of meters more far. You detect so many more field looking for active fish: real fishing power! You play also on the element of surprise, which is not the case down constantly. On the same vessel, a fisherman who systematically raise has more than taken twice! Try: you will find that the results speak for themselves.
Slow pitches: find the right pace!
The term pitch is used to describe a specific animation in slow jigging. Thus, the slow pitch is a short performed at a relatively slow pace (a pitch every 1 to 2 seconds). Associated recovery to the reel ranging from ½ to 1/8 of a turn of the crank. This rhythm is especially important because it directly affects your jig slow swimming. More reel recovery is important and more the sheer side is wide. So with pitches to 1/2 turn, the jerks will be large. With pitches made reeling with a 1/8 turns of the crank, the gaps of your jig will be much shorter. It is the variation of pace during the animation and the combination of different speeds of recovery which will give life to your slow jig and make it more attractive.
Each of these drawn, it will be necessary to give a little hand and wait the jig weighs in the cane again before making a new slow pitch. Therefore have a wide a casting in horizontal swerve, he is repositioning itself vertically. Slow jig fishing as well the ascent than descent. It is thus very common touch occurs when the lure goes flat and flows in things. In more than 70% of cases, the fish bite when the jig descends. So, if you feel the weight of the jig back in the cane, set immediately everything by retrieving the banner to the reel. Generally, there is a simple difference in less than a second in the rhythm that you printed it. These keys are very subtle and are sometimes difficult to detect. And, often, the people who are struggling to detect who have poor results in slow jigging!
High pitch and long fall
At a high pitch, the cane is raised high into the sky. This movement can be done in a single shot or with a succession of slow pitches. A high pitch is usually followed by a long fall for a larger amplitude. It will be necessary to wait for the scion end up luring before quickly fold the rod toward the surface. When you push it down suddenly, careful to throw the banner of braid on the side in order to avoid that it gets tangled around the rings of head. Indeed, a key at this time could break your scion. Slow jig fishing then the descent twirling in an attractive way. Here again, the fisherman must be vigilant and carefully monitor the regular casting of his banner on the surface. Any stop must be punished immediately by a series of further hooking and reeling. Don’t hesitate to ferrer several times “to the Japanese” as the slow jigging rods are flexible. Similarly, you must reduce the wire that is not in tension and slow jig having been taken down, the hooks have not returned deeply.
It’s in alternating slow pitches in different rhythms, high pitches and long falls you will give life to your lure. And in this game, the combinations are endless!
You will find to use the slow jigging technique is a very effective! Indeed, it is rare not to touch any predator during an outing. First, you will be amazed by its ability to take decisions of all sizes, including some barely bigger than your lure fish! In the Mediterranean, one of the most easily captured species with slow jigging technique is certainly the pageot. It is not uncommon to capture more than a dozen during one session and it turns a real saved empty-handed! Weighing up to 3 kg, we find the most beautiful specimens on the sandy bottoms in depths greater than 60 m this sparide is very reactive to slow near the substrate animation, even if waddle slow jig by typing the substrate like for fishing scratch.It’s an opponent that offers beautiful fighting and although being a benthic species, this one supports decompression very well and can therefore be easily released. A good partner of game to make its debut in slow jigging!
Always in the Mediterranean, all noble sparidae are also covered by this technique. Dentis or pagres particularly appreciate the slow jigs. In the bedrock that they love, it will be recommended that the first two or three pitches quickly enough to avoid the hooks. It is worth noting that it is even possible to take other types of sparidae as sars, the tanudes (grey bream) or the Royal sea bream in slow jigging. You can also touch near the bottom a multitude of species such as capons, St. Peter, groupers cerniers, hake, red mullet, Mulet, etc. Back in the water layer, it will interest all pelagic species such as amberjacks, pelamides, swords, etc. These predators especially like an animation made of long falls after a succession of slow pitches. In the case of the sword, it is even possible to wait a few seconds without animate to trigger the button!
In the Atlantic, the slow jigging will prove to be very effective on bars, the Pollack, cod, skinny, etc. Some experts even argue that this technique is more efficient than the traditional traction soft lure. What to say!In relatively deep fishing or on shipwrecks, places are very receptive to a fairly slow animation closely back then to a comeback in the slow pitches punctuated by long falls.
The armament of the slow jig
Slow jig with horizontally after a pitch and during her casting, should place an assist as well in head and tail. The hooks will be quite thin iron and very spicy because it is common that attack would occur on the descent. This armament will as conditioned by the species sought by clutter in the background. In the case of benthic fish on own substrates of sandy types or communities, armed with the double assist will be perfect. The hooks are smaller, this arrangement will maximize decision-making sparidae such as the breams whose mouth has an opening reduced without making you miss more big predators such as dentis, pagres, etc. Note also that this kind of weaponry is excellent on the sabres who are clumsy in their attacks. The braid of the assist will be deliberately short to avoid tangles with the line. A new generation of assist for the slow jigging has even been designed with different lengths of braid to match all sizes of slow jigs such as FS454, FS456 and FS457 Hayabusa.
In the case of congested Fund and research of beautiful fish, constituted armament to a single assist in the front and rear of the jig will be ideal. DJ 77 Decoy suit perfectly for this purpose! Of course, you avoid all the hooks but them will decrease considerably. A very effective solution for species with wide mouth as bars, places, the Yellowtail and other pelagics.
