How To Fish
A very versatile jig for casting, retrieving, drifting, and also great with bobbers.
This jig works great with live bait, artificial, and also strip bait.
Rig the artificial the conventional way by inserting hook into head, but push hook out of side, not bottom of lure. Live bait rigging is standard technique. Hook through the nostril or eye. A bait keeper is enclosed with each pack. See videos below for rigging techniques.

Casting and Retrieving
Cast to target. Can let the tide drift it or cast and retrieve all the way in. On retrieve, use different ways:
- Pop it
- Pull slow short distance and stop
- Wind in slow
- Combination of all
Observe which way catches fish. In other words, the fish will let you know which retrieve works best.
