Default Can't dance the jig

I have tried adding jigs to my fishing this year. usually smilin bills with various sluggos for tails. i have bumped em off bottom..casted em across current and even trolled them.....not one single bite. the live macks are working so i know there are fish there but not one hit on the jig.....

Default Re: Can't dance the jig

I use those a lot on the haba. Let it sink for a while, and then keep your rod tip down, reeling slow with a near constant twitch on the tip to make the sluggo dance. If you are drifting too fast it's hard to keep it down so I try and cast the direction I'm goign to drift into so I can let the jig fall.
