Has your jig rested long enough on the bottom yet? Are you ready to flinch yet? Okay, just shake the rod tip ever so little. If you landed on a hard bottom, visualize that you are rocking the jig back and forth while it stays in place. Don't more it forward. On soft bottom or on weeds, visualize that you are shaking the jig as if it was a crayfish trying to dig itself down and disappear from sight into the muck or weeds. Either way, shake it good for 5 seconds. Don't move it forward! Keep it in place. Now stop. Wait 10 seconds. Expect to get bit during this 10 seconds!
That 10-seconds can feel like it lasts forever!
@happyrock Like I said before, its a necessary part of success!
"Visualize that you are shaking the jig as if it was a crayfish" haha!! I should try to pretend to be the bait more often :)
@fallingwater I'm glad it helped--I try to describe things as clearly as possible
