Jigging


​When it comes to jigging, we implement different jigging styles and always find the most efficient technique for each day. It's really rewarding when you get a school of passive fish to start a feeding frenzy. Before we start fishing we look over the equipment and techniques, and hands-on teach you how to be experts in jigging. Come and learn these fine branches of fishing with a professional guide.

We also arrange jigging courses, that can specifically concentrate on one technique or go through the key points in all styles. Welcome to join our fishing safaris!



Cast jigging



Of all the jigging techniques, casting is the most popular one. The softbait is attached to the jighead and the fishing is implemented from the bottom or mid water. Cast jigging is usually done from an anchored boat. We use traditional anchors or satellite controlled electrical motors. Casting is effective throughout the unfrozen season and main catch is zander, pike and perch. Each species requires specific technique and equipment to achieve an successful outcome



Drop shotting


Drop shotting is a lot like normal cast jigging, but sometimes works significantly better. In this style the bait and the hook is not attached to the weight, but is knotted to the line over the weight. This makes it easier to fish on difficult bottoms. Drop shotting is usually done from an anchored boat. We use traditional anchors or satellite controlled electrical motors. Drop shotting is effective throughout the unfrozen season and main catch is zander, pike and perch. Each species requires specific technique and equipment to achieve an successful outcome.




Vertical jigging


Vertical jigging is an effective form of fishing, that's rapidly gaining popularity. In vertical jigging you don't cast the bait, but you drop it into the fishes field of vision and try to get it strike by moving the bait and searching for the right colour. A great deal of the excitement of vertical jigging comes from reading the sonar to see the movement of your jig and the fish. The boat isn't anchored, but is kept moving slowly by an electric trolling motor, so that the jig is constantly moving right above the fish. Warning: This technique is extremely hooking




Micro Jigging


Micro jigging is at its best, for perch and zander in shallow water or when they are feeding on smelt near the surface. The equipment is significantly lighter and more sensitive than in normal cast jigging. We use 1-2 inch softbaits with heads that weigh only 1-7 grams. The gear must be ultra light to be able to cast these light jigs. Micro jigging brings a new angle to perch fishing. In this style even a smaller fish can put up a decent fight!



Precision vertical jigging


This is a quite a challenging technique, but chances for that really big one are far greater than in bottom fishing styles. The idea is pretty much the same than in normal vertical jigging, but precision jigging happens in mid-water. We sweep the target area for big fish echoes using sonars. When we find a potential target fish, we descend the jig above it and try to get it interested. The softbaits used in precision vertical jigging are often large, usually 6-10 inches. The greatest thrill comes from reading and interpreting the sonar and being able to see everything what happens below the boat
