Gooose I would never [Bleeeeep!] you, your one of my fav turds! laugh

Seriously though, about 3-4 years ago got all addicted to jig fishing because of the killer success rate and started to lose a little of my lead banging mojo. It's alright now though Gooose
I got my mojo back and still continue to go both ways...........don't go there sicko's!

I can just see it now, Gooose singing "let's get jiggy with it" after he finally get the suckers dialed in.

FJ...out.

I to must admit, I am a virgin, I have tried them a few times but just don't have the confidence in them to stick with them, 90% of the steelhead I've caught have been on either bait or corky & yarn, guess I'm just stuck in my ways. I'm headed to the Sky (weather permitting) Tuesday, I guess its time to pop my cherry, and get rid of the virgin label.

FJ after this last weekends experience I sure don't need a couple of extra pounds of rust...neutral bouyancy let alone positive bouyancy was a challenge rolleyes . With the rain we had I'll give you two guess' where I was. Your probably right on the first! eek
Anyway back to jigs....wish certain people would e-mail me their secrets as I'm in need of an advantage...doubt they'll let me start fishin an hour early efore the youngins?

Gooose laugh

Gotta love RT's contests even though I'd have a better chance of getting fatally struck by lightning twice on the same day, than winning one of them. Add my name to the jig virgin list. I've gotten to "second base" several times, but have yet to score. It's a confidence thing...

Gooose, I'm ready to head your way with my jiggin gear so as to get you the low down. How did you do
this weekend? I'm thinking jigs will work well on that first choice river and if not we'll egg em to death.

FJ...out.

Alright, I too am a jig virgin. However, I do have some jigs and floats, and have been practicing. Now that the E. Lewis is back in shape, Ill be giving it a whirl.

I consider myself a jig virgin because I've haven't done much of it and the only one I caught had bait on it. SO I enter. Duce

Fish Jesus we did fine I suppose considering mothernature threw just about everything in her bag at us....including a cottonwood crashing down
next hole up. I ain't postin numbers but there was blood on the bank when we left....further details can be found in my terminology post. Should give you further clues as to where I was.

Gotta technical problem. My favorite most productive steelie hole requires standing amongst severe large woody structure handicaps to drift fish the sweet spot amongst somewhat severe underwater large woody handicaps. I might mention in addition to those handicaps there are several medium to large rock handicaps. To get to the point there's usually only about 7 feet of line between rod tip and lead...hardly room for a float? Probably just get in the way...so is it legal by the contest rules to keep my float (seriously)in my pocket?

Been busy all day so getting caught up tonight. I talked to Mark of First Cast Jigs today. I was going to use 6 jigs I already have for the contest prize, but he offered up a half dozen of his latest improved versions for the winner of this jig virgin breaking contest. So I will offer up older but still great unused jigs for 2nd place and 3rd place. 5 jigs for 2nd (3 feathered and 2 for worms) and 4 jigs for 3rd (2 feathered and 2 for worms). Appreciate the integrity shown so far - albiet KB went above and beyond the call of duty a bit laugh .

On rules Q's - kj, if you stick to all the original rules and land one from saltwater count it good. Gooose, you have to use a float (drift fishing them works, but not for this contest - thanks). btw, don't worry about losing your drift fishing touch. It's just like the ol' bycycle cliche' - you'll never forget how, or lose that good touch.

As for you KB, if it's not contributing to the delinquency of a minor, I have a special contest for you. If you break both your jig and real virginities on the same day - this will be your prize:

jk ... C1 - I will answer your float and rig Q's in the following post.

RT

Thanks Troy.

Thanks Troy.
------------

C1, you were asking about floats for jig fishing. There are lots of good ones that work well for that. For sliders I like the smaller torpedo shaped Thill floats with the simulated wood grain. Foam dinks are ok. For fixed floats I have come to really like the old round natural corks. They have such density that they make it easier to cast distances, and they still indicate light strikes well. Many guys like the Thill Turbo-masters. Other good ones too. The important thing is to match the float with water conditions and the resulting amount of weight you'll use. If you are only using a straight 1/8th oz. jig in gin clear water you should use the smallest stealthy float you can. On the other side of the coin, if the water is high and you are combining extra lead up the line from a 1/4 oz. jig you need to have a corresponding larger float. Keep things in balance and have the float upright to best indicate light bites. ... Help out jig experts.

RT - Great contest. Count me in. When it comes to jigs/steelhead, I'm as virgin as they get. I've always used spinners for steelhead, or occasionally rags/eggs. But I've been tying up some jigs since the rains have kept me off the Kalama. I'm tying white 1/4 oz jigs with hot pink schlappen feathers and pink body. Seems like most folks think that combination is productive for winter runs.

However, I'm not likely to win your contest, not because I don't think I'll catch any but that with the holidays and two small kids at home, my time on the water will be very limited. But I'll give it a shot anyway. Thanks!
