Buggy Whipping Snagged Jigs
This is the technique I use to release snagged jigs in rocky bottomed environments. These two videos should give you a better understanding of how this jig saving technique is performed. I always use a fluorocarbon leader attached to my braided line for excellent abrasion resistance. I recommend checking the last 1-2 feet of your leader for any nicks or abrasions that will weaken your line after releasing a snagged jig w/ this technique. I've had more then a few Smallmouth bass aggressively engulf a jig, immediately after using this technique.
Enjoy your cold weather fishing in safety and
