This method of feeding the bait to the table of a predator is becoming increasingly popular. The technique of fishing on spinning is developing, new trends and successful ways of fishing appear. Today we will talk about one of them …

To what they will not think of, how our brother the fisher will not fade in order to please the fastidious predator. What to think, how to dodge, to gain an advantage in competitions over other athletes. And there are new equipments that receive additional benefits in seducing fish.

Originally a jig rig from the USA, it was developed specifically for catching bass in the thicket of thick grass. And now it is the most trendy equipment in Russia, which is only gaining momentum, and is winning the hearts of anglers.

Jig riga mounting options

One of the easiest ways to assemble a jig-riga using a normal fastener is shown in this video. Everything is very simple. But there is one small nuance. First you need to get a hook, followed by a sinker, so the clasp will be harder to unfasten, and you will merge the trophy.

In a more sophisticated version of the used clockwork ring. In this installation, perhaps the bait will play more freely and a little more interesting. But the winding ring is an additional weak element in the equipment, and it is not always convenient to quickly put it on without a tool.

Sinker

The most commonly used lead weights are in the form of a stick, an elongated drop or “banana”. If not large fish are caught, say, a perch, they use a more delicate installation – a drop of less elongated shape or a tungsten sinker, which is smaller in size than lead.

Hooks

The standard option is the use of an offset hook. The jig-rigg was conceived as a non-catching bait for fishing among the grass. But if the places of your fishing are not so heavily overgrown and tightened, the use of a twin is also quite possible.

Jig rig lures and their wiring

Particular attention should be paid to the wiring of this equipment. In essence, this is the whole "salt" of using the jig-rig. It can be animated in a variety of ways, giving the nozzle a more interesting game, rather than using a regular jig head or cheburashka.

The main difference between the jig-riga and the mounting on the Cheburashka is that even in the standard jig step there appears another small component that additionally attracts the fish and gives it a few more moments to attack. The load falls, but since the bait is slightly higher, it immediately "does not stick" with it to the bottom, does not merge and does not go out of sight of the fish. He makes some more inhibited movements, breaking at the winding ring and reluctantly falls every time at different angles. This seemingly insignificant component is quite enough for the predator to show interest and manage to attack. The whole essence of the work of the jig-riga is in the nuances, but they give him an advantage in difficult situations when the fish refuses to peck. You just need to master the bait feeding technique and feel these moments in the wiring.

On the whole, silicone on such an installation has a freer, sluggish play-over game than in a conventional installation.

The use of the Tokyo-rig raises the bait even more over the bottom, enhancing the effect of soaring and creating an even more broken and unpredictable game in the fall, when the wiring stops.

Passive cancer, or “worm”, can be driven by short flips, jerks, combined with a slow drag on the very bottom and it will have an excellent effect.

Advantages and disadvantages of jig-riga

There is nothing magical, or overly catchy in a jig-riga, as many say. Each installation has both advantages and disadvantages, and only a correct understanding of them and the disclosure of positive qualities to the maximum gives a good result.

ADVANTAGES

an interesting game of bait and a big flight of fantasy for animation with dragging along the bottom and on the lowest horizon from it;
long range is a very big plus for coastal fishing;
patency snap, jig-rig less prone to hooks.
quick change of load and bait – clasp allows you to quickly choose the weight and the right bait.

LIMITATIONS

fasteners, swivels – all these are weak elements in the equipment when catching trophy fish – you should use good, high-quality accessories;
vibro tails play worse and are served less carefully than on the jig head;
not fixed and chaotic arrangement of the hook increases idle bites and worse cut down the fish.

This video can be called the jig-riga encyclopedia. It describes in great detail all the nuances, advantages and disadvantages of this tooling, and describes the options for posting.

In order to visually and even better understand the nuances in the wiring, to imagine how the lure plays on different installations, I advise you to look at underwater photography. This will allow you to better understand what you are doing, to correctly select the wiring with one or another bait, and to be more creative in the art of spinning fishing.

Now you are even better armed on the pond and have a wealth of knowledge about current trends in spinning fishing. It only remains in practice to master them and apply them successfully.
