JohnnyJigs Slow Pitch Jigs are designed to be used for the "Japanese Style" of Flutter Fall or Slow Pitch fishing. This technique, developed overseas, is highly effective for picky fish. The Slow Pitch technique, when used with our Fluttering Jig, mimics a wounded bait fish that even reluctant fish will strike.
The SONIC line has a fall pattern we call "Directional." Attach with tapered side up and the "spoon" side down. When falling under no tension the jig will scoop and shoot in the direction it is pointing like the pattern of a stair case until tension is re-achieved on the mainline. Because it is keeled it also offers a side to side wobble however, it's action is largely in the direction the spoon end of the jig is pointing.
The concept of this style jig is to mimic a wounded baitfish that still has enough in them to be attempting to escape but, not enough to still be an easy snack for a predatory fish.
