How to catch fish on the jig

All anglers fish in the winter using jigs under the nozzle of bait, but not all can fish with baitless jigs. In this article we will talk about winter lures the faux or baitless, about those little things that bring success to the experienced fishermen on the ice fishing.From my own experience I will say that it becomes very annoying when sitting next to the ice angler throws from the hole, one after the other roach or perch and even more surprised that he catches winter with a baitless jig. When you look at the movement of the hands, there is nothing complicated in it do not see, but I understand that it is not trying to catch the same jig. Correct to say that experience comes with age, let’s see how to catch a fish on a baitless jigs. There are many different types of jigs, and most importantly, you must know how to cling to one or the other on the line.


How to tie the jig correctly

How to tie a winter jig? Some of the popular types of efficient baitless lures are jig — “ant”, “oralce”, “goat”, it is recommended to tie them horizontally, for them it will be correct. In the case of ugenie one or more jigs on a line, the angle between the fishing line and hooks, maybe a little vary. In childhood I was a kettle of fish, making the “garland” cling jig like this: passing the fishing line through the hole, 4-5 times winding the neck of the hook and there did zahlest. In the end, this mount they hang vertically. This mounting method makes it difficult for fishing, the fish are biting but it’s hard to catch, she’s not podscasts or breaks. For jigs like “the wire”, so-called “pinks”, “hell” or “Medusa”, then it is recommended to tie it vertically.

How to make a jig, wire

Jig “Procrastination” made from wire thus: take a copper wire and tight with the effort of producing the winding on the shank of the hook. The number of coiled wire turns may be different, this determines the diameter of winding wire and the size of the hook.

For comparison, a wire with a diameter of more than 0.6 mm wound is much harder than 0.3 mm. Pre-material is subjected to annealing and it is soft. A little work and would make a great jig for fishing on neglubokovodnym fish. This lure is very easy to do. Some fishermen attach the bait to the weight of such tungsten ogruzka, which also reduces the size of the jig, because the tungsten is much heavier than lead.


Without the presence of anglers have experience fishing with a baitless jigs, giving the optimal frequency of the oscillation to catch the “wire” will not work. Jig type “carnations” do primaeva hook to a copper-based tungsten rod, thus making a “nail” catchability jig for fish.

In free trade, such lures have not seen as tungsten, but still not compressed almost never released. Thus, last year did his little jig, which is “stripped” from the basics in the fall. The principle is similar to fishing on mormyshka.

Micro spinner or jig

Seem quite an interesting bait in the form of micro spinners that appeared 15-20 years ago. At first they were made from store-bought lures type “osinka”, which have a crown of brass and copper. Many anglers may be given to the hook, and instead inserted a longer, leaving a hole for tying fishing line. This bait was quite effective, especially when fishing for perch, and therefore, it remains popular until now.


To make the jig “the devil”

To tackle the “devil” hung in the vein vertically, the hole should vein in the center along the longitudinal axis. But to make himself “the devil” the jig is very difficult, which is a pity. A variant with a ring under the line simplifies self-made manufacturer, but the knot binding the fishing line itself can move, particularly with hooking big fish.

Another option, make the “devil” from a lead loaded pellets or hunting shot. To make it simple: take the tee “VMC”, it will find in a fishing store and a ring made with the so-called “pigtail”, then epoxy glued in the hole shipping.

Also, such a jig “yo” can make a soldering using fusible solder, even the “three-way”, could make every method spikes hooks, but before soldering etched hooks in place of soldering acid, otherwise soldering will be difficult.

The shape of the lure “devil”

The most universal forms of these lures are “osinka-barrel” and a “long cone”. The beads on the fishing hooks you need to plant when the length of the basis “of the devil” more than 1cm. For slightly shorter length will be entirely sufficient segments of lembrikov (1.5-2 mm), or just small dots of yellow paint.

Most effective get a jig made of copper. Some fishermen before you tie the bait on fishing line I string bead, but I honestly do not, because of the already good bite. Although there have been cases when, throwing for walleye, I strung a bead of mother of pearl color with a diameter somewhere 7-8 mm.

Experienced fishermen recommend to use a specifically for “Jack” fished in length, 30cm with nods 12-18 cm, the grip must be “pen”. By means of the long whip, you can and in time to hook in and to adjust the amplitude, and generally to do all this with one hand.

Feature of fishing on the “imp” is that a fish they almost never shrink, and amplitude catching less in comparison with other jigs. The most important thing to keep constant movement in the vertical wiring, but if the bait is small, it is still better a little shake, as when fishing “Uralkali”. That’s why I try to use the same nods for any other jigs. I make them from watch springs and special pedestrian material of titanium with a diameter of about 0.35 mm.


Jig type “Medusa” got your soft name from the specific shape of a mushroom or cone. Single hooks of “Medusa” are fixed vertically and movable. Use a plant for hooks, but its use is not mandatory. The most suitable material for replanting are small pieces of microporous rubber or pieces of kembrikom. All other features are almost such as the “devil”. The only drawback to this bait is that it is inconvenient to pull the fish hook from the mouth of the fish.

The most effective coloring for “jellyfish” is black, or black with yellow spots, so you can paint the spinner in green color (not recommended to be painted with green paint), not less useful will be purple-pinkish color.

The first two color suitable for all kinds of fish, the rest are recommended for catching of white fish. It should be noted that not less important is the use of copper to jig. For oscillations plays a significant role infusion, as its size is proportional to the oscillation frequency.

Thus, if instead of beads or Chebrikov to put 1-2 plates of “wings”, the oscillation frequency is reduced in a multiple number. We have a jig of this design are called “nymphs”. The stores are jig appeared about three years ago, but since the price on them is pretty high, many fishermen believe that it is much more economical would be to fasten the “wings” on any other tackle, having received from it in the future, not a smaller effect.

Bait lahasky

The lovers of winter fishing for many years, interest in the baitless bait “lahaska”, which appeared approximately 15 years ago. It is metallic and shiny corecourses foil and soldered lugs, thick coiled filament from the pile. Mounted micro-spinners, usually slightly above “oralcy”.

Properly attached hanging hook horizontal plane parallel with the bottom or with a small slope down. “Lahaska” the ice fishing is good for perch, roach, bream, Zope, white bream. If a little experimenting, for example, to make the “garland”: lower jig “devil”, and she attached one or two “lagmaske”. Especially effective on Zope and bream. Interestingly, lochmaea bait, the more it bite, so it’s best that rule be taken into account.

In practice, the avid fishermen long has it taken into account, and catch those “lehmustie” that have a larger pile or rough, because the fish is really much more entertaining with great interest applies to these lures.
