Big-Eyed Jigs are to be trolled with a spinner blade rig off planner boards. This jig is just heavier than water, so you can troll this at a very slow speed and it will still roll like an injured bait fish. Tipping this jig with a night crawler or leech makes it deadly. For larger bait, add a small stinger hook. You can use the jig in shallower lakes or rivers, trolling this jig behind a bottom bouncer.
You can cast this jig with a lindy rig or a Carolina rig. At a very slow speed, this jig will still roll like an injured baitfish.
