Jigging is the practice of fishing with a jig, a type of fishing lure. A jig consists of a lead sinker with a hook molded into it (as illustrated in the image above letter J). The jig is often covered by a soft body or rubber worm to attract fish. Jigs are intended to create a jerky, vertical motion while casting and reeling, as opposed to spinnerbaits which move through the water horizontally.

One technique for using a jig while fishing is called stroking the jig, or placing the jig throughout the bottom of the water column moving up to just a few feet off the bottom. Stroking is meant to cover more water at a faster speed. Fishing this method uses strong, quick motion popping the fishing rod and jig up and down mimicking a wounded fish or sea creature. This technique is popular in bass fishing.
