I am getting to enjoy vertical jigging quite well, and wanted to know or see whats hitting what. What's the magic thing that causes the :stinkfish to hit your lure. I know the "hit" is a instinctive reaction to the way the lure swims. But as someone who is new to jigging and get a little tired of :banghead on my yak and not getting strikes. Everyone has to have their own "style" of makin their jig wiggle just right to get the hit. Whats yours? Anyone feel like discussin this topic or is it secret business when it comes to lure selection or presentation.

I definitely agree with trying different styles. Last time I tried it, I caught a snapper just yo-yoing it off the bottom. Then switched to rip-hopping it all the way back up and caught a bonito. A few drops later my buddy got tangled up on something so I started to straight reel it up as fast as possible to just get it in and help him out, halfway up WHACK! fish on!
Definitely a good workout, when I can afford it, I'm going to get a lefty conventional reel to match the one I have already and be able to switch arms when I get tired.
This guy here sells them for $4 for 3.5oz and $5 for 7oz. Also has those squid lookin ones too. I just ordered a set of the 3.5oz ones.
