<font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">Well, I don't know what to say here. Maybe most are not actually TRYING to do so....but they are!! The normally accepted method for jigging is a slow pull up, followed by a slow dip back down, so you can detect the strike. 90+ % of strikes come on the "down"...the jig is fluttering. The vast majority of the people out there are yanking hard in an upward motion, and then just dropping the rod back down.Most people jigging the mouth are not trying to snag fish.
