Gulf Shores saltwater, deep sea fishing has changed over the past twenty years. Newer technology has taken the place of traditional lead head jigs. Now don't get me wrong, you can still catch some nice fish on traditional jig heads. We are talking about using the butterfly style jigs along with traditional jigs. Gulf Shores salt water fishing offers some of the best jig and jigging saltwater guided fishing charters in Alabama. Jigging is best described at the most intensive methods of saltwater fishing. It requires family anglers to use technique, agility and timing in order to make the jig dance properly and cause a Red Snapper, Grouper or Amberjack to strike.
Our charter guides take time to educate you and demonstrate how to use different jigs and teach you how to catch fish by using proper jigging fishing techniques. Sure we are going to lose some jigs. We don’t like to lose a jig, but that is the cost associated with specialty fishing. We don’t get mad or fuss about it. Most charter fishing boats do not use the nicer jigs because they are expensive and they have a fear of letting inexperienced, first time fishermen and family anglers lose them. They are afraid of getting the jigs hung up on the artificial reefs below the boat. We simply tie another jig on there and help you do it again. Your saltwater fishing guides are patient and want to watch you learn how to catch Red Snapper, Grouper and Amberjack by using a jig.
Jig fishing is primarily done while reef fishing on natural reefs and artificial fishing spots that are located south of Gulf Shores. Almost every game fish that lives on these reefs can be stimulated and made to bite a jig. There is an art to jig fishing. Jig fishing is more than just using a jig to catch fish. Part of jig fishing is knowing how to use the jig when deep sea fishing. Depending on the species and the charter fishing season you are in, most of fish you’re jigging for, you can use jigs that are small as 1 oz and can be as heavy as 9.5 ounces each.
The rods you use while jig fishing have to be compatible with the line and the jig weight you are planning on using. There are some really good rods for jigging and jig fishing. Our first time and family anglers use the Trevala rods made by Shimano. They are expensive but they offer the best action and are light enough that even the smallest angler can handle. We use Penn 8500 and 9500 spinning reels as well as Shimano Calcutta’s with a 6:1 gear ratio for a fast retrieval of the jig. Your family will enjoy using high quality, top of the line jig fishing tackle.
