What setups are you pitching 3/4 ounce jigs with?

Recommended Posts

Pitching jigs and texas rigs in coveris my favorite way to catch fish. Mostly stick to 1/4 up to 1/2 weights in both jigs and texas rigs. Picked up some 3/4 ounce weights and jigs and curious about what you guys are using. I think I will probably use my 735 fury with 18-22lb fluoro or my 8' heavy daiwa fuego with 50lb braid or 22lb fluoro.

2 rods:

•Dobyns Extreme HP 7-4 Heavy Fast Flippin Stick

•Kistler Helium 3 Heavy XF 7-3

 

I’m 5-9 Xslow, or I might opt for slightly longer rods ;)

 

Am a braid guy primarily 50 lb, half the time time with a YZH 12 lb leader with FG knot depending on water clarity and patience level..

7'4 H/F Falcon BuCoo

50# PP 

Curado 8.5:1 

 

I will use 20# Sunline or Seaguar fluoro leader but if it's deeper, clear water but around cover I don't worry about it.

Sounds like you have a couple of set ups that should work good.  I just like a bit longer rod so anything over 1/2 gets a 795 Flip. I like flouro over braid but that's just me.

The only time I use a 3/4 or 1-ounce jig is when I'm punching.  So my punch rig is a 6'6" Daiwa Procaster rod with an Abu 5600 C3.  I have it spooled with 50# power pro.

I don’t throw 3/4. I am at 1/2oz and under. The heaviest weight I use is 10 grams. And that is “heavy” for me. For things like cranks they are somewhere around 15 grams maybe?

I only have one combo for jigs and worm rigs over 1/2oz.  It's built on an MHX blank ( FS904-W-MHX ) 

paired with a TD 150H  Advantage spooled with 50lb. Suffix 832.

8' heavy daiwa fuego with 50lb braid or 22lb fluoro. 

This is the rig I'd use

 

Of my own line-up, the 7' H/F Diawa Aird-X with a Fuego CT-XS loaded with 50# Power Pro is what I'd use. Bought for pitching/flipping but would also be a good heavy jig rod.

Any MH or Heavy flipping/pitching rod should be fine for 3/4oz.  Really depends on where you're fishing them and what rod(s) you prefer.  I use 65lb PP and 80lb PP for my heaviest punching rig.
