Jig-A-Whopper is a brand of fishing equipment that specializes in jig fishing lures. They come in a range of shapes and colors, and can be used for specific types of fishing. The best general way to use a Jig-A-Whopper lure is through the jigging technique. This method entails letting the lure sink into the water, then working the rod to make the lure dance around. The colors and movements attract fish, while an added piece of bait encourages them to bite the hook.

Items you will need

  • Fishing rod
  • Fishing line
  • Jig-A-Whopper lure
  • Bait
  • Water
  • Dish detergent
Step 1

Secure your Jig-A-Whopper to your fishing rod's main line using a loop-type knot, also called a Hangman's Noose. Thread the end of the line through the lure's ring and make five wraps with the loose end around the line. Pull the end tight to secure the knot. Add a small piece of bait onto the lure's hook to make the Jig-A-Whopper more attractive.

Step 2

Fish with your Jig-A-Whopper using the jigging method. Cast your lure slightly past where you believe the fish to be. Let the lure sink near the bottom of the water. Quickly lift your rod tip and drop it again. Reel in your slack line so that the lure is now slightly closer to where you are positioned. Continue doing this until the Jig-A-Whopper reaches your position. Fish will be attracted to the movement and will follow the lure as it come closer to you, allowing you to watch the fish take the bait before reeling it in.

Step 3

Carry your Jig-A-Whopper lures home in a dry container once you have finished fishing. Clean them with water and dish detergent, then hang them up to dry. Proper care of your lures will keep them in good working condition and ensure that they continue successfully attracting fish.
