Question Jigging Ditch (CC Canal)

Hey,
I just picked up a conventional rig and want to start doing a lot more jigging in the ditch. Looking for advice on soft plastics or technique. Typically I use like a 6" shad (white). I cast upstream (like 45 deg) on enough weight to hit bottom 4-5 times as the current pulls downsteam and jigg it up sharply each time it hits bottom. Does this sound right any advice on color size etc would be great.

Thanks
kirk

Hey Kirk,
Try that same basic approach at night with a black 13" Got Stryper rubber bait on a 3-4oz bullet nose jig head, but when you feel it hit the bottom, let it roll until you feel it stop moving altogether, then pick it up, let it drop back down, and repeat... Many times you'll pick up a nice fish as the jig rolls off the edge of a rock and falls down into the hole behind it

Chart-peppercorn 7inch gulp jerk shad on a 2-3 oz Sea striker jig. I don't jig sharply although alot of guys do. When you do that you will get some slack in your line and not be able to feel the bump. Just a nice smooth up and down (the current will give you the action you need) when you pull back it makes the bait swim quick for a second making it look like it's trying to escape. I will put these baits up against anything in the canal. DOWNFALL = They are expensive and are usually good for a few fish before you have to change them. Even with a hard rip I only use a 3 oz. Bring plenty of jigs and a bike and try different spots. There are fish all over that place.
