Let me ask when comes to jigs. I always think of trees or heavy structure. When y'all fish jigs like in the fall what is a must go to and do? I myself I am really trying to understand jigs and technique but my bites only came from trees and on the first drop. I have no ideal how to work them besides watching Senko_77 video. So I always end up putting the rod down. If someone can give me a quick run down on jigs far as fall bites go. What to look for or are you just casting out like regular baits and bringing back in towards the boat? Swim jig or pitching jig? I might be going out Saturday and possibly tomorrow. If go out tomorrow will be the best time to work on a jig since must of the lake ranges shallow with allot of branches trees washed up on the shorelines that cause me to get hung up everytime I try to wacky.
Good questions. To be quite honest with you, in the fall I primarily target the same combination of structure: A cove with a defined creek channel, right off the main river channel, and with plenty of structure. When I say structure, the more the merrier...lots of laydowns, stick ups, brush piles. This combination of structure will hold fish throughout the whole fall season, and to me, is THE best place you can fish. The cover in the cove gives the fish plenty of ambush points to catch any kind of unsuspecting prey that may wonder by. That being said, I'll flip, pitch, swim, cast, and hop the jig next to any cover, whether it be a laydown, brush pile, or a creek channel. These fish are hungry, let them tell you how they want it.
No presentation is a bad presentation. Fall is a very forgiving season due to the fact that these fish are gorging. Experiment and figure out what those fish want!
