    @GhostTheSilent you might also want to research they type of jig head for areas youll be fishing, there are three specific types and this may help cut down on some frustrations on getting snagged.

  10. N47Z86 says:

    @ ghost: the size of the jig is based on the size of the fish. Small jig, smaller fish.

    Another thing to keep in mind, the heavier the jig, the faster the fall.

  17. paimei0708 says:

    I’m pretty new at all of this. Can any one give me some tips as far as what king of rod to buy and such. I live in California in the san juaquin valley to give you an idea of what areas are available to me. Any help is much appretiated.

    @tictac1093 wasn’t he tying a palomar knot? the line tends to foul when applying it to large lures, just saying

  19. tictac1093 says:

    @RonyMexico haha why? that wouldn’t make much of any difference

  20. RonyMexico says:

    might wanna tie the jig online before adding your trailer, just saying

  25. hornet579 says:

    @ChivasUsaFan16 Yeah, you do.

  26. dewz4949 says:

    Try a Zoom 6″ scuppernong (color) lizard on a BPS enticer 3/8 oz. black neon weedless football head jig. Never fails for me.

  27. TheRubberDuck139 says:

    A bass hits a jig&pig they usually head down with it. In heavy cover you need something to get them turned and coming up quickly. I prefer Heavy action, I want that fish turned as quick as possible. The reel speed, high speed is fine. The high speed is basically to get the bait back in quickly so you can move to the next target quicker, at least in the case of a Jig & Pig.

  28. netefrog says:

    7 1/2ft med heavy rod, 20lb mono, high speed baitcasting reel..
