Football Jigs And Rocks
Posted July 31 2012 - 01:03 PM
Anyway, here goes. I have always had terrible luck fishing football heads in rocks. By rocks, I mean chunk rocks and boulders of different sizes (from pebbles to as big as 5 feet diameters).
I fish it like I ordinarily fish jigs; cast it out, let in sink, shake it a couple of times, hop it, or drag it. Invariably, I manage to get it snagged. I have had days when I lost half a dozen jigs in less than an hour.
Now, I fish from the shore mostly, and fish uphill (of course).
I tried brush and/ or grass jigs, which is what I now use 100% of the time anyway, irrespective of bottom composition; and it definitely doesn't get snagged (in rocks) half as much.
What am I doing something wrong with FB jigs in rocks?

Also if you're fishing from shore.........try casting 45 degrees to the left or right and work on an angle, not straight out and back in. You'll cover more area and the fish are more than likely facing toward the inside of the lake or up river current. Do a few casts changing the degree of angle. You may find you're getting more hits just from the angle of the presentation.
