Wow... A whats the best stroke thread......wink.gif

 

 

Dude jig howevers comfortable. It don't freakin matter.

Half the time they hit it on the drop anyway.

 

Not to mention unless your cardio is better than chuck norris's. Your style of jig is gonna change after fifteen minutes anyway.

My friend is a hardcore Free style jigger. He claims the short stroke is more effective, but eventually gets tired then the strokes get longer due to being tired. But he does catch Tuna and other gamefish. The short stroke works for him, but takes some effort if your going to stick it out.

 

I tried it with minimal success. I think I dont stick to it and then bail out before giving it a chance.

I like it short and fast, she likes it long and slow......wait a minute.....cwm27.gif

 

Kidding, as others said, do what's comfortable and the jig gets taken on the drop alot too.

Not sure how deep you are jigging, but don't be afraid to put it right on the bottom if you can. Last year we had them eating them right off the sand in 150 feet of water...bounce, bounce, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....
