    jigging yellowbelly

    Hi folks, Just wondering if anyone has ever had any success jigging for yellows. What lures would be the best to try?

    very successful technique for me. In dams try from 5-about 12m of water- I like flats adjacent to steep dropoffs. Look for fish on the sounder, and jig black/gold ecogear zx40 or other bladed lures with small, sharp hops and plenty of pauses and slow falls.
    Here's a few that have fallen victim to that technique for me
    Good luck.

    Bobbing we used to call it. Bob a crayfish, shrimp or even a spinner bait around logs and debris.

    Most of my freshwater fishing has been in rivers and streams and not much more than 1- 3 meters of water.

    Always around sheltered areas in the stream.

    Although I have never tried it I recon a plastic frog will get a good cod or yellowbelly if use on the bob.

    Have fun Haji-Baba

    Yup dropping a blade or jackall tn 50-70 in trees or out in the open when you see them on a river drop off or just being greedy chasing bait schools . Its actually become one of my faveourite methods..... but im too impatient for the whole 'slow' hop & drop thing......I tend just drop it & crank & drop erratically ... good luck
