Second, look for structures like ledges, drop-offs, or reefs that fish might be hiding around.
Finally, try to find an area with some current – this will help bring the baitfish (and the fish) closer to your boat.
Once you’ve located the spot, zoom in close and take a look at the street view. This will give you a good idea of what the area looks like and whether it’s worth fishing there. You can also check out local forums and reviews to see if others have had any luck fishing in that spot.
1. Look for areas with structure (e.g., reefs, drop-offs, ledges) where fish are likely to reside.
2. Scan the water for baitfish schools or feeding activity around structure. Fish will usually be close to where the food is.
3. Use your electronics (i.e., sonar) to locate fish and identify potential hotspots.
4. Ask local anglers or fishing guides for their recommendations on good jigging spots.
The most important thing is to experiment and keep trying new spots until you find ones that work well. Jigging is all about being in the right place at the right time, and there’s no guaranteed spot that will always work. The best thing you can do is to be versatile and adapt your tactics as needed depending on what the fish are doing.
Another way to find a good jigging spot is to look for fish congregating around large schools of baitfish on your sonar. If you see this on your sonar screen, there’s a good chance that bass and other predatory fish are nearby and ready to strike.
You can also try trolling around until you find a spot where the fish are following your bait or trolling baits at different depths until you locate a school of fish. Once you’ve found a good spot, it’s usually best to anchor up and start jigging.
