Are you referring to jigging in the context of standing stem helicopter logging, as seen on heli-loggers on TLC?

Well, what you do is get a piece of lead with some bucktail attached to it and  hide a fish hook in there.  Then you drop that rascal down to the bottom on a stout line attached to a good pole and bounce it on the bottom.  Sometimes a fish will come along and see it.  He/she will think it is a shrimp, or some other form of fish food, and bite it.  When he/she does that, you will feel a knock, or a jerk, or a thump on the line.   That's when you yank back smartly and set the hook.  If you play that fish properly, you will end up with him/her in the boat. :)

This is used when natural bait is at a premium and you need something to fish with  :P

 You can also use this method when you want to fish and really just don't want to catch

Jigging is a dance that loggers did back in the day.
Usually phrased as dancing a jig, with a room full it's known as jigging.

Jigging, leaving a strip of wood that the helicopter can break and lift the tree off the stump.

Thanks to all who replied to my question about jigging. I am sorry that I was not more  specific about fish or trees. Thanks Kevin for the photograph of the cut. Fred

Don't apologize!   I thought it was a brilliant title.  DanG!  if you had been real specific, it wouldn't have been but a two post thread.  :D :D

That was fun.  ;D 8)
