Shore Based Jigging For Jacks!

Postby Scuba Chris » Tue Aug 16, 2022 1:25 pm

Used A LineDancer w/my Okuma Rod & Spinner To Bring In 2 & Lose 2 Jacks in 2hr!

Of all the forms of shoreline angling i've tried i love jigging from shore the best. And i spend the least amount of money on my gear. I travel light & cover a large area sometimes 3miles from my car. I take a backpack & recently a 5gal bucket just to sit on while i'm jigging. Several key factors make this work so well for me.

The jigs. I use Tracershot Jigs supplied to me by Mustad. These jigs were engineered for shallow water usage & long castability. Shortly i'll be guinea pigging a new shallow water design here in Hawaii. Right now it's being highlighted to dealers in iCast & other shows till the end of August.

My LineDancer. Bill Stute sent me several units to try many years ago. I'm still using them. When i don't bring & use them i do badly. When i do bring them i'm hooking-up all day. They look simple but boy do they work. In 2hr i drove to my spot, hiked in, caught 2 Jacks which i C&R, hit 2 more that i shook off. Then arrived home. All that in only 2hr because i brought my LineDancers.

I also use good equipment. Okuma's Guide Select Pro at 9'9", the new Limited Edition GT Spinning Reel (only 1,500 were made) spooled with 10lb Eminent Braid by Soft Steel.

For awhile i've been releasing all my catches. So no cooler is needed. I bring a backpack with an energy drink, bottled water, jigs w/pliers, a few apples and my action cameras that are mounted on myself. I travel light. Sometimes i walk far. I meet anglers here & there & they're happy to receive a large Jack or Cuda for dinner.
