1. SLOW DOWN, I learned that I was really fishing it too fast. It wasn't until took one set up out and started fishing a football Jig that I didn't get bit until I started slowing down. Now it is more habit than not
2. Use a big profile. I started using fuzzy beavers and trailers of that size and the bite switch came on.. Like a light switch.
3. Refer back to #1
It doesn't matter if your fishing with an ugly stick or an megabass ARMS rod, if your not getting bit , there is nothing to learn from.
Once I started getting bit I adjusted my equipment to fit the conditions I was fishing. Nowadays its almost always a Faust rod and Shimano MG7 100 series with #14 floro.
I hope this helps someone like me who is always striving to learn something new and master it. Although I haven't mastered nothing I am learning and catching fish. People say not to use it in grass but I have found the FBJ to be a great flipping jig in the Pads. I dont know why but it gets bit. So if your cover changes I wouldn't necessarily change the lure.
i have some 1/4 jigs with the owner deep throat hook and he just has a quality product.. very attentive to what you want and his attention to detail is superb.
I've also been using Riot bait lil creeper jigs and prefer them over the Keitech model and bass patrol..
Picasso makes a great one as well, but I brought some BOSS FBJ heads and just added my own skirts which has proven to be awesome. Just my humble opinion , now back to this boring school work
