Advantages of Using a Crappie Jig

The crappie jig has several advantages over other types of lures used to entice this species to strike. One of the main advantages is having the ability to switch bodies fast and easily while fishing. This way, if you’re out on the water and discover that a different type of body would be more effective for the fishing conditions at that time, all you have to do is make the switch. It can be done so quickly that it’ll have no effect on your fishing other than helping to increase the number of bites you receive. You can change to a different color, size or both whenever you need to.

Jigging is a very effective fishing technique that is used to fish the jig. Jigging allows the jig to move through the water in a vertical manner that will get the attention of the crappie fastest than other methods. To use this technique you simply cast out your line, with the jig on the end. Next, allow it a few seconds to sink then start moving the end of the fishing rod up and down slowly while reeling it back in. This gives the jig the action or movement that attracts the crappies. It’s vital that you keep the slack out of the line when jigging or you won’t be able to set the hook properly and your catch will get away.

Crappie fishing is very popular because it can be enjoyed by amateurs and professionals alike. The crappie is fairly easy to catch but they will put up a fight, which makes reeling them in both fun and entertaining. These are the qualities that make them the prefect species for all anglers and the reason this species of fish is so popular. The use of a crappie jig can increase the number of bites you receive, which in turn increases the excitement you experience.
