What's The Difference?

Recommended Posts

I love to flip and pitch a sweet beaver with a punch skirt under a pegged tt weight. It esentially looks like a jig, right, or is this just my misconception. Will this rig work as effectively as a standard jig?

Should work just fine, I have done this exact combo before and caught a few nice ones.

I'll find out this season. I love jiggin and have stocked up on skirts and tungsten to pitch in the heavier stuff.

The main difference is going to be in the head. You will be pretty limited going the punch route. A football head in rocks is money, makes that craw jump up in a defesive position.

 

I see no reason to skip out on jigs unless money is super tight. You can get a jig pretty cheap. Booyah makes a jig thats like $3 max and $2 on sale that works pretty well.

You can do what you want with a punch skirt. It just dresses up a punch rig and gives it more flare for the bottom.

Different jig heads act differently on the bottom. A punch rig might tip over more than your standard jig head. You also get a different style of presentation for different scenarios. Most guys I know will punch into a junk then let it fall, twitch it once or twice then that is it. With a jig they may go a lot slower. Also you can skip a flat jig better than a punch rig.

It's a substantially larger profiled bait than a jig of equal weight with the same trailer. The bait tends to take more of a horizontal position than a jig/trailer when at rest. Not really good or bad, just things to keep in mind.
