Gear alert: Mastering the jig

Gear alert

Learning to fish a jig or jig-like bait is a must for midsummer bass anglers. A good way to start is with a skirted Jungle Jig, an easy bait to cast and retrieve — the latter occurring with a repetitive lifting and dropping motion, with reeling occurring on the drop. The trick is to detect a strike immediately when it occurs and quickly set the hook. Otherwise the bass will drop the lure and be gone.
