The basic idea behind vertical jigging is to use a heavy lure that can quickly sink to the bottom, then to jerk the rod sharply up and down in order to create vibrations that will attract fish.
It’s important to use a lure that is heavy enough so that it will quickly reach the bottom even in deep water. And remember to keep your line tight at all times so that you can react quickly when a fish bites.
Many people also like to use a vertical jigging technique by dropping their lure all the way down to the bottom of the lake or river and then slowly pulling it back up towards the surface.
Some anglers prefer a fast retrieve, while others use a more sluggish retrieve. As always, it’s important to pay close attention to the fish and make adjustments as needed.
That said, in general a slower action is often better for jigging because it allows you to more easily control the bait as it moves through the water. This can be especially important when fishing in deep water or targeting larger fish.
