Jigs - float fishing-is one of the most used ways to fish jigs.

A slip float with jigs tied under it is often used for deep water.

Most jig-float fishing uses a fixed float that doesn't slide on the line.

you can use one or several jigs tied on your line under a float.

to fish the float use different retrieves . slow pulls of a foot stop let the jig swing under neath the float. or use small twitches . or you can just reel it very slowly along. The best is some kind of stop and go twitch ,pop, pause, shuttle along type retrieve .

keep a close eye on the float for lite bitters sometimes the float will just lay over. that is the strike set the hook.

If you see anything different just set the hook. Hook sets are free.

some people even add rattle to their floats. They drill small hole in a plastic float add some shot then fill the hole with epoxy .

this really works good over shallow flats or when the crappie are up shallow spawning. and below a dam on winter crappie.

I have just finished reading your series on fishing jigs and you have done a good job in letting people know how it is done and also how deadly this method is. As I stated in my newbie post, I do practically all of my fishing using jigs and will on very rare ocassions use a minnow. I am not saying that minnows do not work but it has been my experiences that jigs are a faster way to catch crappies and not lose time in rebaiting, etc. There is an art to fishing jigs and techniques and methods will vary with each individual but for the most part, Sticko is right in saying that one must fish it slow and even then s-l-o-w is "not" slow enough. This is the key to being a successful jig fisherman.
