 ? these are very good

 ? these are very good samples of jigging, all of these styles iv'e caught fish on. i like the high lift and slow drop technique myself.... having said that sambos love a faster action but ive found getting crazy fast doesnt work so good.

Well done a very good fish, did you see it on the sounder before you put the jig down, or just picked a good spot and have a "blind" go as it were.

 I kinda cheated, I’m a spearo and this day jigged cos my ear was playing up usually we spearfish in between 25-30m so sound the lump up and bomb down on top for a look freediving. The day before I noted this lump was loaded with dhus, as first dive dive down and plugged a good one. So next day we went out straight back to the lump, sounded it up in reverse with the trusted 588 and kept the throttle on to keep us right above it. Then seen fish arches appear and then we were both on
