With this new style of jig fishing, there is very little movement by the angler, and it’s not tiring at all like traditional jigging rods are. All of the action is in the extra soft bend of the slow pitch rod.
Drop the jig down to the desired depth, then crank it up a few cranks to load the rod and feel the rod bend. As the rod straightens back out, Lift the rod and crank a good turn on the reel and allow the rod to bend again.
Ninety percent of the bites are on the fall, but you will likely feel the bite when lifting the rod.
The tip snaps the jig up and then the jig free-falls back down into the strike zone. After a couple of short seconds, that fall ends, so you have to develop a rhythm, half-turns, or full turns of the reel methodically to load the rod. Usually, I make five or six cranks, and then I free-spool the jig back down.”
With Slow Pitch Jigs, don’t drop and rip your metal jig back to the surface. Instead, try to keep your jig in the exact depths where you feel that the fish are suspending.
When using a specific slow pitch jigging rod along with these new jigs used, the presentation truly mimics a disabled baitfish fluttering and falling instead of fleeing.
