Deepwater Jigging
"Traditional thinkers will tell you that in order to probe the depths at the edge of the continental shelf you'll need broomstick-stout rods, several pounds of lead and multi-hook rigs. They'll say you need to carry slabs of cut fish, squid, or clams for bait. They'll claim it takes roughly 15 minutes to reel up your rigs from the 600- to 800-foot depths you'll be fishing in, and some of these conventional minded folks will even say an electric eel is a good idea. Hmmm - that doesn't make deep dropping sound like too much fun, does it? Good thing some innovators in the industry have come up with something new that'll put deepwater fishing in a new light."
