I drop back down still in a great position with my jig straight down from my rod tip and get undeniably crushed by what seems like a nice fish. I give the reel a few fast cranks, along with the business end of my rod, to ensure the hooks set properly and start cranking.
Slow Pitch Jigging in the Bahamas is an incredible experience. Well let’s face it, any kind of fishing in the Bahamas is incredible! For us Floridians it is within an arm’s reach. Don’t get me wrong, it will put your planning and boating skills to the test. But, what an accomplishment to take a personal ride over!
The JohnnyJigs team went to San Diego to experience first-hand dropping our jigs in the Pacific Ocean with the hopes of getting tight to bluefin tuna. This fish and this fishery offers a lot to think about in taking Slow Pitch Jigging to a whole new level!
The Johnny Jigs team fished at the Pacific Fins Resort in Iztapa, Guatemala. We traveled internationally with all of our slow pitch jigging gear and caught grouper in the Sailfish capital of the world! (We caught those too).
