Power and Mech jigging are generally off the rod, whereas the others are (again generally) off the reel.
This shows their technique well (though I've never tried it - mech jigging's my thing):

I just watched this:


Looks like how I've fished skampis since the 70s. One of the reason I like Sabers over the new super thin broom sticks is that they will let the lure swim. Getting hit on the drop has always been the norm.

Nikola showed me a rod designed to not fight a fish because it was cranked in with a reel, that doesn't seem like fishing.

I'm not talking bad about the technique, I'm sure there are details I am not aware of that make it unique; but my bottom line still holds true: Put some smashed lead with a hook on the bottom and catch fish. Everything else is designed to catch fisherman.

Whoa! Thanks Tunanorth, Justin and Ron. Thatís my thinking, go light for bottom fish, itís more fun. Why pump and crank up 2 - 4 Rockfish at a time(a West Coast thing in the US) with a pound plus of extra lead weight. Itís more work than fun.

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

I can definitely attest that it is a lot of fun hooking a large rockfish or the likes on light line with the slow pitch technique. Super bendo!!! Smiley Cool
