Sea bass jigging question

120 posts in this topic

Thank you. To share.  See pic.  Right two are shallower water options I recommend.  Left one the line is tied or clipped, like the string, to the same eye as tube or teaser.  Ever tried that?  

 

IYO what is best tin to get hit on the flutter, drop?

I really don’t know.

 

I know the Norwegian jigs are made to work on the drop.

 My go to has always been the hammered diamond jig. I prefer using a siwash bucktail in white with red thread.

While I know this jig is very effective when squided, I have caught a lot of fish on the drop with it.  Specifically tuna, sea bass and blues.

If you want seabass jigging in the spring, go to Hyannis, MA for fine seabass jigging in shallow water. Any light jigs in 2 - 5 oz work fine.  You catch them along with big scup.

Ok took a pic for you here are the two 2.5 oz and 4.5 oz we use commercial black sea bass and commercial striper fishing "used to use Ava 27 jigs" the big tip is use the head on the diamond jig that is hook down Not hook up, "hook up snags to much" Goosehummock tackle shop in Orleans has them, tough to get during commercial bass season, bodies are 7.5 inches long, its the same lure as the video from pg 1

Just ordered a bunch of these jigs from these guys, never been to the shop, they don't know me from a hole wall. They threw in a bunch of free stuff in the box and the shipping was super fast.  THANK YOU and hat's off!

Id rather catch stripers but I’d much rather go for sea bass. Same with blues.

 

I went for sea bass yesterday. The first drop I felt a bump, set the hook and reeled in a short. That was at 640 am. I did not get so much as a nibble for the rest of the day. NOT A SINGLE BITE. NOT ONE!!! I fished clam all day. 

In truth, I have only myself to blame.

I decided to fish with a boat that hardly ever bottom fishes. And more importantly, I made the mistake of taking the corner of the stern on a 125’ boat that I should have known was going to fish smaller lumps. I like that spot for jigging. If we were fishing very large wreck it would have been alright. But we didn’t and it wasn’t.

Literally like ten keepers on the boat. Harldly even any junk fish came over the rail. Worst trip in recent memory....

Is it spot burning if I ask "where not to fish?"

I was on that trip - certainly the slowest sea bass trip I've ever been on. Caught a fluke waiting to launch and then didn't get a single bite until the final spot, 9 or 10 hours later. Luckily it was a keeper. I used mostly clam, jigged occasionally.
