Freshwater jigging

Hi guys,

Need some advice and tips on freshwater jigging. Not sure it's as productive as hard and soft plastic lures or if it'll get snagged easily as compared to normal lures (planning to try the below jig of 20g). Thanks!

    Use a Micro Jig find the lightest possible 10 gram and below, that is what I do.

    Jigs sink so much faster than sinking lures, so a 10 gram and below will free fall fast.

    It is not a rule, it's just something I follow.

    But will lighter jig be possible with 20lb braided line? Still able to cast out the same?

    Yes just not as far, you can look at the Shimano Soare Tungsten Jig - small and heavy.

    Will check it out. Hopefully they wouldn't get snagged, thanks bro!

    based on my experience, 8 to 15g jigs will be suitable. The slower the jig fall, the better it is actually. This is because it has that same slow fall action which has a good presentation to the fishes. To compromise casting distance and action, hence these weights are recommended. Some successful jigs that I have tried are Super Skarp 12g, Storm MCJ08 and 12g. :lol:
