jigging for muskies

<<<<><<< <<<<><<< <<<<><<<

I was watching an infisherman show last year early spring.They were using a 1.5 oz bass jigg with a 6inch got-cha shad on the hook and this guy was nailing skies left an right.He was saying its a new concept in musky fishing. I went out and bought it. Tried it late in the season with no results. Did anyone hear about it or try it?

Keep in mind that's a fishing show. They have plenty of hours of film not catching them left and right, but who wants to see them NOT catching muskie.
The jig they used was a new looking set up. I used it last season and it looked really nice, but I dont think its a super lure, I bet if the guy next to him had a jig that was a little different worked the same way he would have had some action too. In fact when it comes to this fish, if you are at the right place at the right time they'll take a whack at anything, try a chicken liver with a pull/pause retreive! My point is that hours of fishing on the right body of water will cause you to be there at the time when the fish are active and you too will have a shot at catching them left and right.
Its a good lure so use it if you want, Just use it alot on GOOD waters and use it several different ways, fast ,slow,straight or up and down. Time on the water and fishing hard is what gets you numbers of muskies, Not a new or magic lure.

Fish GOOD waters HARD and be READY!

I have a well-known muskie fishing friend who catches alot of fish out of western PA rivers on jigs such as these.  Typically 1-2oz jigheads with twister tail or lizard bodies.  In fall and winter the fish are very concentrated and it's more a matter of being at the right place at the right time, as some of the reports that show up here suggest.

I haven't had much luck with the technique, though.
