Swim a Jig


I do a lot of swimming a jig. When fishing a jig and pig, keep the bait moving by using a jiggling-twitching retrieve. You want to work the jig close to the bottom, so a heavier jig is better in this application. When you come to a tree top or some buck brush try swimming the jig trough instead of the normal vertical presentation, you’re looking for a reaction strike and you’re not trying to force feed the fish. Try this simple but effective technique with the jig and pig and I’m sure you’ll put more fish in the boat.
