A few tips on tossing the jig
Flipping Jigs: You would use these baits to fish inside or outside of cover like trees, wood and laydowns. These jigs usually have a stream lined head to cut through the dense cover. You want to take short precise casts with these. Let it fall to the bottom and give it 2 bumps and burn it back to the boat. The repeat. Remember to get that precision and precise cast as to where you think the fish may be in the cover.
Football Jigs: The football jig is made for wide open fishing. If you can picture how a football would wobble from side to side then that is how this jig performs. It is great for wobbling along rocks and chunks just like a craw fish.Take long bomb casts and retrieve over 1 rock at a time. You want to feel the bottom while you are counting the rocks and such. A slow roll.
Finesse Jigs: The finesse jig has a smaller profile and bullet or round head. This bait is great for light cover, small rocks. Good for fishing small ponds ands smaller situations. It does the same job as the others with more of a softer approach.
