When it comes to fishing butterfly jigs, there are a few things you need to know to be successful.
In this blog post, we will discuss the ins and outs of fishing with butterfly jigs.
If you’re not using a butterfly jig yet, you’re missing out on a great technique that catches loads of fish. So whether you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, read on for all you need to know about fishing butterfly jigs!
A weighted jig that flutters when it sinks to the bottom is known as a butterfly jig or flutter jig. They are highly productive for saltwater fishing but can also be used for freshwater fishing in the right situations.
Butterfly jigs are one of the most versatile lures you can use when fishing. They can be fished in a number of different ways, making them ideal for both beginner and experienced anglers alike. One of the great things about butterfly jigs is that they can be fished in at different depths, making them perfect for targeting a variety of fish species.
When fishing with butterfly jigs, one of the most important things to remember is that they are designed for specific underwater action. Butterfly jigs are designed to imitate the fluttering motion of baitfish as they swim through the water. They can be used to mimic the behavior of live and dying baitfish by employing different modes of retrieval.
Reeling in butterfly jigs with a steady, controlled retrieve can effectively imitate live baitfish. However, some of the most powerful techniques involved various forms of erratic retrieval.
These methods are intended to mimic the behavior of dying prey. Casting the jig out and letting it fall allows it to free fall. As your butterfly jig falls, it will flutter and shake, imitating the action of a wounded baitfish. The lure can then be reeled back in and allowed to fall again for the same effect. The erratic motion during the fall is what triggers strikes from predators.
