recommend me some demersal jigs guys

i'm using a rod that will get me by for now , jigging

a t curve spin 8 - 12 kg matched to a saragosa 6000 with 30lb

i currently have only 2 jigs

a shout lighten in 90 grams (done well on this one)  and a zest baitfish maybe 120 g's.

i wanted to get a few more jigs , useful down to maybe 80 meters

Evergreen Caprice's, Shout

Mon, 2010-08-16 18:33

Evergreen Caprice's, Shout Lightens and Stays... the Caprice being my fav's cos they flutter heaaaps. As others have said you can buy the Fankys which are a copy and cheaper but I still prefer the Caprices :)

fankys are the bomb! shout

Mon, 2010-08-16 18:51

fankys are the bomb! shout stays seem to work as well as the lightens. andamans are good but comes with a price tag thats hefty. like the zests as well in green and orange

Agree with everyone's recommendations. To confirm, I use: Shout Lightens, IMA Ro's, Shout Shab Shab's, Shout Stays, EG Caprice Kids, Fisherman Andamans, Mangrove Studio Wipeout.

All from 60-130g. Haven't done much local demersal jigging beyond 60 meters.

Preference is Caprice Kids & Lightens.

Shimano OCTO Jigs

Mon, 2010-08-16 20:03

Or the normal Octo jig works like a charm.  I have attached pics of the shimano ones I use. Don't be put of by the small hooks, you can catch a big fish with these little boys. These ones are 2oo grams and are mainly for boat fishing, or JetSki fishing.

Cheers

JR

I use a big white lead head jig with a bit of bait on it, works a treat.

Cheers

octa's are pretty good if

Mon, 2010-08-16 21:23

octa's are pretty good if you working them correctly. Biggest & most fundamental factor when jigging for demersal's is the technique you employ. I've seen so many anglers use a hardcore sambo technique for light jigging which doesn't result in success.

yeah , i barely do anything

Mon, 2010-08-16 21:39

yeah , i barely do anything with em action wise, i actually use the 200 gram ones as a weight with two baited flasher droppers above. about as blingy rig as is possible to use. still nothing.

Downgrade the gear. Lighter

Mon, 2010-08-16 21:45

Downgrade the gear. Lighter lines & lighter jigs. I use PE2 mainline & 40lb leader. Depending on depth & current, use the lightest jig possible.

I'll be getting a couple of mates out soon for a jig sesh & will record some technique footage to upload on FW.

technique

Tue, 2010-08-17 07:52

mate
love to see the technique footage.
Brenz set me up with a stack of jigs (cheers mate) but i haven't caught anything on them yet.
not very confident in the technique i'm using so change it up a lot, but would be great to actually see someone who knows what they're doing. while on it - how's about some tips for soft plastic action?
great to see everyone having so much success baitless, wanna get some!

Soft plastics action

Tue, 2010-08-17 10:26

I'm fairly aggressive with my soft plastic rod flicking technique. It has scored me plenty of fish. A few mates that I've fished with use a much softer technique which has also proved very successful.

Just cast the plastic up current (ahead of the boats drifting course) and let it sink... then flick the rod tip up & down. Simple really. Can't go wrong.

I think the important thing

Tue, 2010-08-17 08:22

I think the important thing with demersal jigging is to just slow down. Its hard because often you feel like you're doing bugger-all but dhufish are pretty lazy really =)

thats wierd daz, i was

Tue, 2010-08-17 17:09

thats wierd daz, i was fishing my plastic cast behind boats drift , into freespool and keep boat on spot until plastic down , then drift over your ground . no need to recover line as plastic always being towed (you're still twitching it forward) . periodic freespool to get back down . (as long as drift isn't nuts)

Octas you want really slow

Wed, 2010-08-18 21:14

Octas you want really slow movement. Slow lift and drop or ever leave in the rod holder works well.

Plastics I find the 3 jerks upwards then back to the bottom works for me offshore. Plenty of hits come on the drop back so be ready.
