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.
I've become almost addicted to fishing small metal jigs this year. I've learned that swapping average hooks (especially treble hooks) for top quality assist hooks can make a world of difference to hook-up rates More
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!
