This technique allows anglers easy daytime deep dropping presentations without worrying about spinning, tangles or the need for fresh bait. It’s the simple, clean and easy way to catch trophy swordfish all day long.

I realize these jigs were developed for deep drops but I have a feeling they would be killer for other depths. I am thinking 100-300 feet would also work. These are the typically normal depths I like to fish in the Dry Tortuga’s area. Regards, Tim
