Cast it out and after it settles on the bottom reel it in until you begin feeling rocks ... this will put you right at the transition and cruising fish.

Then practice jigging as described with small jigs and plastics of your choice.

Hmm I will have to try this soon. The next time I go, which will be soon, I plan on setting up a slip bobber on 1 rod and practice jigging with the other.

One more question for now. I just put fireline on the pole I'm going to jig with. Should I tie a jig directly to the line or add a fluorocarbon leader?

If I add a leader should I use a ball bearing swivel, tie one end with main line, and the the other end to the leader? OR use an interlock barrel/ball bearing swivel, and make leaders that have a loop at the end like the pre-made snells?
