Black Bream caught on a Cultiva metal micro jig
Using Metal Jigs is one of the most active and exciting methods in the LRF arsenal. Metal Jigs are available in a wide array of shapes, sizes and colours and can be fitted with small treble hooks, singles, or assists. The are normally cast out or jigged vertically in deep water. Sink-and-draw is a successful technique and fish will often attack the metal lure on-the-drop.
Dan with a clonking great wrasse caught unexpectedly on a Daiwa micro jig from the boat. We had to leave our buoy and chase after it. Great fun!
Even the humble Pouting can prove sporting on appropriate gear. Pout will attack suitably sized jigs like the Quantum Mahi and Bass Pro XPS seen here
We got out in the boat yesterday and although big tides, managed to flex the LRF gear briefly at slack tide. An inshore wreck was home to a shoal of decent Scad (Horse Mackerel) so we had a blast with small metal jigs. Aji-tastic!
