Wind slowly to keep the jig near bot­tom. Stop and let it sink ev­ery five to seven cranks. Main­tain a tight line as it falls. The jig scoots away and then glides back to­ward bot­tom. Crank the reel four to six times at three-quar­ters speed, then kill it....

Rod starts at 9 o’clock. Hop half­way to 10:30, hes­i­tate briefly then hop to 12. Stroke the jig with two short hops in­stead of one big one. Let it fall on a tight line.
