Such a smart answer!!! Never would have thought of that...can you try and be useful though? I literally asked where you would run them in the spread...please post on someone else’s thread and waist their time, and stop wasting minewhere you run them is the most important thing....preferably right in the area where there are plenty of hungry marlin
I definitely intend on adding a few more jigs to the arsenal... Jimmy Decker is a believer in pink and that’s one thing I’ve picked up on, also adding something flying fish to the arsenal...I’m just curious how you guys think I should run them in the spread? 2-3 wakes on the inside and 6-7 on the outside?
Thank you for that info! That is all really great stuff..I can afford the outriggers but right now other things come first, wanna try out this marlin deal this season and probably buy a set for next season. I like the broom handle idea, it’s given me some things to think about. If we’re just talking about raising up my line I think I can do that..I do have some flat line release clips I can use. I have some aluminum extendable poles I can probably screw the release clip into...I have outriggers and I point them straight back instead of out to the sides. I red an article on the internet where the guy said to stagger the jigs one jig to a wake and first one jig on the port side and the next jig on the starboard side back and forth. This way you double the amount of water you are actually fishing from close to far. Made sense to me so I tried it last year and It worked for me. By the end of the season, I had been bit on all four positions. The outriggers with the two longest jigs in them will raze your lines up and help keep them all from getting tangled during a turn.
Put your biggest most aggressive jigs in close and your smaller jigs further back. And Dark colors in close to stand out in all the whitewater and lighter more colorful jigs further back.
Outriggers are pretty much mandatory but you can't afford them. But if you are creative, you could probably rig something up. A 21ft Parker has a short cockpit and if you have rod racks on top of your roof, you could try buying some flat line release clips and attach them to broom handles and put them in the racks. Or even other rods not in use at the time.
Something to think about.
a must have without a doubt, notice the pink? you guna catch em for sure.View attachment 1054786 Awesome info from you guys. I truly appreciate it. I’m definitely going to continue to read and watch videos...I really wanna get one! There have even been a few of you that have reached out to me to talk on the phone about it and that is above and beyond! I will take you guys up at some point this week when life slows down.
As I don’t have a pink or flying fish colored bait in the lineup I was thinking about getting this jig in the photo. From what I’ve read it’s extremely productive. Thoughts on adding this one?
That’s a great video...definitely gets the adrenaline going!! I’m going to look for the Pakula video as well...I’m thinking I may need to sell some gear to invest in outriggers. One member has a set that I would love to have but bills come first so I’ll be going through my inventory to unload some stuff as it seems they will really increase my chancesFirst another triple, then taking a breather with
no hooks in our spread due to over abundance of fish.
