    Hey guys....

    Have any of you talked about plans for Jigfest IV out of Wilmingham, NC?

    (I think it's at IV...) I want to dance with an AJ as shown in a few of the Jigfest III pics....the AJ's were huge.

    I received the Jigging Master 500g rod from Gary and put my Accurate B2-30 on it....I'm ready to tango with one of those big mothers.

    I went to the last one and the next one is full and gonna go end of March I think. Usually the date for the next one will be announced immediately after the trip.
    Go, by all means go. If you're wanting to see how your jigging game holds up or want to improve it, it's a fun trip. It's also a chance to meet some of the East Coasters (actually, fishermen are starting to come in from everywhere for these trips). I'll try and go again, it's good times.

    fred, im gonna try and go again myself. last time was a blast. the biggest thing i learned was that i was totally out of shape for that torture. i couldnt jig(properly work jig) by the end of the first day and didnt hardly try the second day. my arms would spasm and lock up on me.

    if interested they post up on the deepjigging forum. great bunch of yankees! hahaha.

    Brian, Lemme know when. Last time I had the wrong jigs and wasn't quite ready either. Fighting the AJ's is one thing and then there's jigging all day with 300g and 400g jigs. My technique was a little thin last time but I've fattened it up a little. When I return I intend to give the jacks fits.

    D-a I've been thinking about this lately and was going to suggest it to you for march let me know we could easily do 5 on the GB. We could scout it out for ASWSC.
    Aj jerking might be the best option

    400-500g rods are the best. The last trip produced some large fish several over the 100 mark but I was lucky enough to land of the largest on record down there went around 120-130 ish

    Gman caught biggest, taped at 120. I believe there were a few more that went 100. AJ's to test your equipment, strength, and technique. And Dave, sometime I'm gonna wreck me some fish tacos.

    Don't think there was any hot's, but most every top manufacture was represented. I caught my 100lber on a OTI 600g and OJ 5000

    Actually I have landed several big AJ's just shy of the 100 mark on my Hot's 48XXH. The 100lber will hit the deck on Jigfest 4!
