If you only had to choose one lure, what would it be? Well if you were to ask that question to the “Edge” staff the answer would likely be unanimous and it would be the jig. Jigs are perhaps the most versatile of all lures for all species. Jigs are the ultimate delivery system live bait and plastic. You name the fish, they will eat a jig. To be successful jig fishing, match your rod, reel and line to the conditions. Most jigs require non-mechanical action to elicit a response from a fish. Experiment with drop speed, retrieve speed, to find what the fish prefer. In many cases, especially in cold water fish prefer a jig that falls slowly, by contrast in the heat of summer fish may react to a jig that fall fast and is jigged aggressively.
