I'm not sure what you mean by instead of crabs? You still use crabs as bait, it's just the presentation is different.

You bait the jig with crab and drop it to the bottom. You don't jig it like you would do for fluke. You occasionally lift the jig. Most times it only takes a few seconds to get a hit so you don't have time to jig.

Works when it works. Doesn't when it doesn't. Very popular in the Sound. Visit Hudson Park, get a lesson, buy some jigs and Asians, if you are in more than 20' of water, I would just fish a bait rig with a light sinker. I do not like to use more than a 1oz jig. Best is when fish are stacked in very shallow water, they will hit a 3/8oz jig before it touches bottom and run with it.

You're missing out on a lot of fun if you're limiting yourself to 1 oz jigs. I've used up to the 4 oz. Hudson Park Tidal Tails and they work just as well as the lighter versions. It may be a personal preference of yours but I've been in up to 50' with the 4 oz'ers and had no lack of action.

Jigging for blacks is my best way to catch them. Stick a whole asian, or half of a bigger one and drop it down. You can jig them like fluke, i do that and still consistently catch them. But the other method of picking it up every once in a while works too.
