Curious to see how many people find "stroking" their jigs as being an effective form of jigging versus the dragging style or regular technique.

I haven’t heard of this in years... Marty Stone had a good video of this

I had some really good days doing this a few years back. Not sure why but I've gotten out of doing it. It's usually a pretty violent bite.

I only use the technique when the fish are deep, suspended and keying on shad.

it works, similar to a jigging spoon.

So it's more based off the type of fishing your doing versus just "doing" the technique while trying to JIG.. I had seen someone doing this technique @ Fork from Arkansas and he was hooking up so much I had to indulge on the conversation but never pursued others opinions. He says this technique has landed more big fish in his lifetime than any other fishing rig or presentation.

to me it's the classic example of a true reaction strike. you are making them bite it out of a reaction, not hunger. imagine a big fat jig landing deep on the bottom and making a silt cloud which in turns gets the attention of a big fat bass. she swim up to it and goes nose down starting to look at it. all of a sudden the jig gets stroked and leaps off the bottom causing the strike. the bass wasn't going to let it get away rather than preying on a crawdad crawling along the bottom.

I do it all the time for a reaction bite when they are wanting it like that they knock the mess out of it.

We do it when the "dragging" bite slows down to trigger a few more bites. It's paid off for us in the last few years. caught some of the bigger fish in the school doing it. but like someone said above we only do it in deep water.

Has worked really well for me at Fork in the summer. Big one ounce white jig with a white trailer.

You can also stroke a big worm. It is a great technique at night on fork. As mentioned, they absolutely hammer it when they hit. Really fun bite

Still works...I caught a few on Palestine last few weekends doing it.
Buddy of mine had just finished saying,
"I don't ever know why I try to throw jigs, I never catch them like you do...."
then he almost lost an arm when a fish hit it, LOL....sometimes its unbearably slow, but I've been told I'm a "jig ho"....

It can be deadly summer time ledge fishing.
