What do you jig with?

I just thought I would put a new thread out there to see what jig outfits fellow FW members are using.

Interested in all light, medium & heavy jigging outfits. Everything from rods to line.

Let me know what you use & how you rate your jigging outfit (light & comfortable - heavy & tiring etc.)

Daz.

Sat, 2009-10-03 22:57

for the heavy gear i use a stella 20000 with avanti gt smp line pe6 (90lb) on a shimano blue rose rod ... great for slowing down the odd big sambo, shark .

for medium gear i use a saltiga 4500 on a saltiga deep 55b running pe4 .

for lighter i use a certate hype custom 4000 pe3 on a twincraft pe3 rod i got from honsu .. this is my best combo as its stopped big pinks and dhu's while drift baiting and stops the big sambo's that i get in shallow water really nice :P .. light enough to use from the yak but still strong for when it counts.

That's very expensive line you got there on your Stella 20000 just for jigging!

Ever given the heavy outfit ago in your yak Clint?

Atm I love the light jigging, so ....

HR Jig Force PE 1.5-3.0 with a Certate 4000 (modded with Hyper gearing)

Eupro Salty Fighter Sping PE2 with Stella 4000FD

Eupro Salty Fighter OH PE2 with Conquest 300 Type J

What's the damage to put the Hyper gearing into a Certate 4000? 

 

I jig with a Saltiga Z40 & Saltiga 55B rod for heavier stuff (PE6) & a Saltiga 4500 with PE3 - but need a new rod for the 4500....

Sun, 2009-10-04 14:25

light would be saltiga 3500 game on a saltiga 68s rod medium would be saltiga 4500z on a saltiga 56b rod heavy would be either saltiga 6500 exp on a saltiga exp rod or saltiga dogfight on a custom seed rod. I do also use a torsa 30 on a saltiga 55b rod have plenty of others to use but these are my favourite at the moment.but have a injured hand at the moment so no jigging for awile for me

Sun, 2009-10-04 20:00

Sigh, been doing more fishing on the net than IRL, but I may as well post.

Medium: Xzoga PE3, Avet Sx MC 2-Sp, with 30lb power pro

Heavier: Monstermesh PE6-8, Saltist 30TH, 50lb power pro*

Still really needs to be used in anger, closest it got was a large shark in Exmouth before I was bitten off.

*Soon to be swapped for birthday loot Daiwa Saltist LD 30 2-sp and Varivas Avani Big One PE4/62lb.

Jigging: I have bits and pieces for this, still collecting toys!

 

Light: Morethan Branzino 3000 with 20lb sunline, rod: I got my eye on one of those hearty rise jig force PE 1.5 - 3 / twincraft PE 1.5 - 3 / Salty fighter PE0.8 - 2 / Exploder II Pe1 - 3

 

Med: Saltist LD30 2 speed with 45lb PE4 Daiwa silicone, twincraft PE3

 

Heavy: Shimano T-Curve 400 spin, no reel yet but it will be a Stella 20000SW - I'm planning to run 2 spools (I will use the spool from the 18000SW I'm also going to buy for popping) and run Varivas Avani GT 130lb PE10 and 80lb / 100lb Jerry Brown hollow core.

 

 

Well thats the plan anyway.....

Tentaive plans are for either a Ripple Fisher 78 or a Smith Komodo Dragon. I'm leaning towards the KD at this stage.

Very nice rods there too. I've got my eye on the 79R Ripple Fisher (Ideal for both stickbaits & poppers).

Mon, 2009-10-05 18:56

I have a Shimano GT stick that I can use as a stickbait rod if I get the urge.

 

Hence why I'm leaning towards the KD as its a bit more suited to hoofing bigger chuggers. May need 2 x 20000SW's since I have 2 rods......Tongue out

Ive used both rods and IMO the 79R feels better with poppers.   But i recommend you look at the 78PF or the 78Flex.

that if I bought an 18000SW and 2 x 20000SW they'd throw in a 5000SW to be nice? Could make up a PE5 jigging combo..........

Medium: Evergreen Poseidon PSPJ410 PE4 with Shimano Stella SW8000PG which will be spooled with PE3-4 or PE5 (undecided on braid)

Medium/Heavy: Jigging Master PowerSpell 300g (soon to be) with Shimano Twinpower SW8000PG with 12000 spool, spooled with PE5 Varivas Big One.

Heavy (Brutal): Valley Hill Mogi-Special Exploder 53XXS PE10 with Daiwa Saltiga Z6500EXP spooled with PE8 YGK Ultra Jig Man & spare spool of Varivas Big One PE6.

Can't wait to give the new gear a good workout.

Sat, 2009-10-24 20:11

I originally placed an order for a Hots Wei World 52, but found plenty of people commenting that they need a lot more respect than most high end jigging rods on the market. The mogi should hold up to plenty of abuse.
