From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jigging is a method of fishing. It is well known in Japan, especially in Okinawa, the United States, and Canada. This way of fishing need a unique fishing lure called a jig. The hook does not hang bait. It consists of a model that resembles an injured fish. The model will lure big fish. On the fishing boat, fishermen jerk the fishing line regularly. The hook moves vertically. Because this is a fairly new method of fishing, jigging equipment is limited. But, universal fishing equipment can be used to jig, as well.
