FISHING TECHNIQUES

The slow jigging with light equipment is definitely the most funny. With this technique, using various types of jig (metaljig, Kabura, inchikoo), you can catch many species and the fights are very exciting thanks to the lightness of the gear and the fighting spirit of the fish. Very effective even soft bait rigged on big size jig heads. For all species of sharks, the drifting technique is the most used and effective.
