After scouring the internet for hours on tips for slow jigging, I finally hit the tackle store and picked myself up a jigging outfit. Daiwa Saltiga Lever Drag on a Shimano 180g weighted rod.
Headed out with fellow raider @mshuangchao 6am through a very calm harbour and out to 9 mile reef.
Sounded round for a while and marked some fish around 95m so engaged the spotlock and down went our jigs. First drop and Chao is on to what looked like a barracouta which was confirmed when the line was snipped and goodbyes were said to his shiny jig.
After a few quick lessons on the technicque Chao's rod buckles as the jig is fluttering back down and after a solid fight he lands his first King of the day!
After about 15 minutes went quiet so we sounded around until we found another patch. Shortly after I was finally onto my first fish on micro jigs. A bit disappointed with the lack of fight, I was suprised when I pulled up my first ever John Dory
An hour later and we had another King and 2 more JD's. Wind picked up so we called it a day...Not bad for a first timer in this field and in under two hours. @mshuangchao is one highly skilled micro jigger and a great teacher!
