The best action for jigging is a rhythmic side-to-side motion. This side-to-side motion will cause the jig to move in an S-pattern as it falls through the water.

Vertical jigging is a great technique for targeting suspended fish in deep water. When done correctly, it can be an extremely effective way to catch walleye, sauger, crappie, and other game fish.

The basic idea behind vertical jigging is to use a heavy lure that can quickly sink to the bottom, then to jerk the rod sharply up and down in order to create vibrations that will attract fish.

It’s important to use a lure that is heavy enough so that it will quickly reach the bottom even in deep water. And remember to keep your line tight at all times so that you can react quickly when a fish bites.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best action for jigging will vary depending on the specific situation. However, a good starting point is to use a light action rod with a moderate fast taper and 6-8 weight line. For most jigs, you’ll want to use a retrieve that is slow and steady with occasional pauses.

Jigging is a type of fishing that uses a jig, which is a type of lure. There are many different types of techniques for jigging, but the most common one is to cast your line out and then use a light action rod to twitch the lure up and down in the water.

Many people also like to use a vertical jigging technique by dropping their lure all the way down to the bottom of the lake or river and then slowly pulling it back up towards the surface.

When jigging for bass, the best action is a moderate retrieve. This will cause the lure to “wiggle” back and forth as you move it through the water. You can also experiment with different speeds and rhythms to see what works best on the day.

Some anglers prefer a fast retrieve, while others use a more sluggish retrieve. As always, it’s important to pay close attention to the fish and make adjustments as needed.

When it comes to jigging, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. The best action for jigging will depend on the species you’re targeting, the depth of the water, and the type of bait you’re using.

That said, in general a slower action is often better for jigging because it allows you to more easily control the bait as it moves through the water. This can be especially important when fishing in deep water or targeting larger fish.
