Morning all,

It’s that time of the year when everything is feasting on the Pin sandeel, especially here in jersey. The bigger fish are coming closer to shore and the stamp of fish is much better.

I’ve started getting Jiggy with it for Pollock. Off the local piers. SG seekers in 28g and other slow pitch jig.

I like the way these SG seekers are falling. A slow glide. Seen in this latest video by us (beneath the waves fishing)

does anyone else have any slow pitch jigs there use and if so can you give me a few names.

kind regards

FC

Not slow jigging but Sidewinder Lures are class
so is the traditional Red gills both brilliant for pollock.
Fiiish black minnows are also good but a bit more expensive
in all honesty pollock will take anything if the are there

I have been enjoying success with metals. 25g sprats for both Pollack and Mackerel.
The real killer punch for me is my Ron Thompson jigger. Bright orange and yellow! Look more like goldfish, yet the Pollack love them. When everything fails, this baby always comes up trumps, like last weekend. I always keep a couple in my bag.

Might need a ball weight and trace for casting but these work. IMG_20200610_082149.jpg IMG_20200610_082207.jpg

I've never tried that method, just simple swivel and lure, but yes the same as for mackerel.
I stick a float out near rocky kelp beds too (or is it kelpy rock beds?!) I've had a few good Pollack that way too. Only thing with float is that if you're not sharp, they swallow your hook. Okay if they're keepers.
