With Slow Pitch Jigging has been sweeping through the offshore fishing world for the past decade now. A highly effective technique that is capable of triggering strikes from a wide variety of species all throughout the water column. From groundfish like groupers, snappers, rockfish, and cod, to fast-swimming hard-hitting pelagic species like tunas, wahoo, and other mackerels, they all fall for the slow flutter and action of the slow-pitch jig. The specially tuned jigs are made to be center-weighted and often leaf-like in shape to give an action that imitates a wounded baitfish slowly fluttering to the bottom. This triggers an instinctive response from fish that can’t let an opportunity like this pass. Originally from highly pressured waters around Japan, the craze has spread worldwide. Compared to traditional vertical jigging slow pitch jigging is more similar to a waltz compared to the full-speed sprint that is speed jigging. Combined with lighter gear and a slower less intensive pace slow pitch jigging has more time spent actually working jigs than resting after bringing the jig in a couple of times.
