The concept of jigging for blackfish is entirely new to me. I will appreciate any info on the use of jigs such as TidalTails.

I had the same question as you when i fisrt started using the jig, here is a message i got from John Knight...Hope it heps you out!!

Hi Angler. Welcome to toggin with jigs. My name is John Knight. I am the owner of Tidaltails and the designer of the jig. I sort of agree with the posts but let me share this with you. On the lighter jigs I use a 8-17 lb spinning rod loaded with 50 lb Sufix Braid with a 40 lb
fluorocarbon leader. Shallow water from 5 to 20 feet and usually a 1/2 oz is good, but have gone up to a 1 oz. Asians are about all I use on the jigs and I hook the Asian threw the back leg on slightly out the side. Pinch the shell of the crab to juice it a little. Pitch it slightly into the area you are fishing and lift up on the rod until the slack is gone. Just wait and you may see the line going off the either side or even slight pecks on the jig in which case you slowly lift a little. If you feel a little weight, at that point increase the lift speed and if the rod folds over cross the eyes of the tog. If you are good at Fluke fishing you will rock with the jig. Just remember, you don't have to swing and hit airplanes to set up on a tog. It will not take long to get the hang of it. In deeper water I use the heavier Tidaltails to 4 oz. There it is a simple drop the bottom, pick up on the slack and walk it around. If you feel hits do the same as above. Lift SLIGHTLY and if you feel the weight of a fish...set up on him. Bang!!!! another one.
Thanks for buying my jigs and enjoy. Send some photos to us. Enjoy and again Thank You. If you need some more help call me at my store. 914-235-4050 Hudson Park Tackle, New Rochelle. Home of Tidaltails.
