Jigging the Monties.......

Gday Guys


I am heading to the Monties in August (same as I did in 2009) this time around I want to do alot of Jigging, I have never done much of it before and am curious about the following...

* What weight jigs?

* What brand jigs?

* Colors?

* Quantity to take?


Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks in Advance

Hey Dancer, I reckon you should take one about 55 kg, any brand, dont be prejudice on colour and take plenty of lube. If thats not an option try one of the blow up ones apparantly they really go off up at the montes you just need to find a quiet spot by yourself.

Some advice I got prior to going last year:


... and now I've been there I'd agree on keeping them cheap, at least for when you're fishing in the deeper water anyway.  Sometimes we wouldn't even feel the impact of the jigs getting bitten off, there is no shortage of sharp teeth around there.  We used R2S Searocks and some cheap second hand SW Lab jigs I picked up in the For Sale section.  Anything in the 200-300g weight was fine for us, we generally fished in 40-60m.  Take a couple heavier just in case you go deep.

Try Brody at the fishing shop for some fanky jigs. Pretty cheap and a decent action but you will need to upgrade the split ring and probably the hooks as well.
