Underwater Video of the Jaw Jacker in action on a very tough day of fishing March Friday the 13th. The weather was beautiful warm, calm and sunny but the fish were in an ultra negative mood. So much so we thought there weren't any fish in the area from watching our MarCum. Turns out there were lots of fish in our area and instead of our jigging action pulling fish in to the bait it was actually turning them off before they were even seen on the sonar. This is where the Jaw Jacker's were excelling. I learned a few things from this video. The pike were getting off because I had a light line on the rod and reel so I think the monofilament was stretching too much to get a good hook set. Also since the fish were in such a negative mood they wouldn't even fight after the hook set so they would create their own slack and just spit the hook. So on slow days it really does call for a Jaw Jacker rigged with braided line, a good stiff rod and loaded with lots of tension. That way the fish will hopefully still be there when you get to the rod on those slow fishing days. Check out the video I learned a lot from watching it after and hope you do too.
