    Re: 2 jigs

    I tried two jigs and lures on a one line/rod setup..........

    however, I will give two flys on a line a thumbs up...... if in clean water.
    If trophy hunting, only one fly.

    Lost many a fish with rocks or bushes grabbing the loose fly !!

    Good luck.

    Pretty much of what I was thinking of, maybe a heavy tube jig or something else to make it straight. Big thing is the bottom and having something that flashes....Jetspray

    I think MkE mentioned it on a pyramid post. I assume heavier jig then lighter jig on the tag end? any other set ups?

    Thought it might help to change colors

    I used to test stuff in my sink to see what the action is. I always drop my new setups in the water to check them when I troll lures. It is much the same thing, just to look at what the lure is supposed to do......Jetspray

    It all depends on distances and weights. You need to rig up what you would want to try and drop it in a body of water like a garbage can with water in it. Then jig it up and down. I used it at San Pablo Dam in the past and mostly tried to keep it off the bottom because of the vegetation and rocks. You could try it off a boat as well. I have a large collection of tubes for crappie, and they work for trout as well. Rig it & jig it, that's all I can say......Jetspray

    I have done this a Pyramid. Lots of tangles with 1/4 oz. jigs. Never got it to work.
