  • Slow Pitch Jigging

    Slow Pitch Jigging - Grouper Fishing

    Slow pitch jigging for grouper is a super productive fishing technique for targeting fish where they are and not just on the bottom. At times fish will feed just off the bottom or even higher in the water column, depending on where the bait is situated. The real difference between slow pitch jigging and speed jigging is the ability to keep your jigs at a specific depth while working them. The fluttering motion that you can sustain within a given band of the water column mimics that of a wounded bait fish, whereas speed jigging mimics that of a fleeing fish. You can take advantage of feeding triggers versus trying to elicit a reaction strike when cranking a jig back to the surface. Learn more about the jigging technique, fighting technique, the rods, reels and jigs used for slow pitch jigging grouper and snapper with this In The Spread fishing video.
