"Deep inchiku" and slow jigging at browns mountain

Recommended Posts

G'day fellow fishos, this is my first post so go easy on me...

Went out to browns to jig on a beautiful day and persistence payed off with one gemfish and one mirror dory. Both were hooked near the bottom at almost 500 meters with my 800g deep inchiku jig. After that, we went out further in hopes of getting connected with tuna. I managed to hook a nice albacore with my 300g slow jig on the drop. When the fish took the jig, it had already dropped around 300 meters. All in all, though nothing spectacular turned up, it was a fulfilling and very tiring trip!

Wow very nice mate

what did you do with the fish?

you would expect that he would eat it , or that would be a waste of effort to fish that deep , he certainly couldnt release it , nor should he!! why do you ask ????

Thank you!

My respect to you for winding 600 metres and to even think about Jigging - great effort.

Thanks! It is actually not as tiring as it looks, you could try it yourself someday XD

Wow very nice mate

I got one gemfish and one dory while the electric reel got eight gemmies, we were near our limit so left for tuna further out. At the end of the day, we took the fish home for a feed. I made some albacore sashimi :icon_razz:

It's true, the dramatic pressure change makes them unfit for release. So once we bag enough, we move on...

Yes it was actually lots of fun, particularly when you are fishing deep, you never know what is going to hit the hook!

Dude jigging at 500-600m lol that's nuts! You must be very fit to do that, or very crazy haha

Well done mate!

I think I am more of the latter :banana:

You've got me inspired to try this manual deep stuff again, we've been picking up those silver dory down here in 50 m while chassing snapper.

My 15 year old daughter recently pulled a big blue eye from 660 m, it almost killed me just pulling a 400 g jig from 350m.

Hi Jon,

It's great to know you show interest. It is much easier to jig deep if you use passive, energy conserving methods, such as slow jigging or deep inchiku. I would not recommend speed jigging at those depths, as most people will be wasted after the first few drops. Last time I went to browns, I jigged for the entire day and got five fish while my arms didn't go sore at all. Sure it sounds scary, jigging at those depths, but with the right technique, it is actually quite feasible, even for a skinny Asian like me.
