Captain Rush from Local Knowledge shares how and when he uses Nomad Jigs. Co-host of Local Knowledge TV show and Florida Charter Captain, Rush knows his jigging.
The Streaker is designed to be worked faster. The longer, slimmer profile sinks faster, making it ideal for deeper water or areas of increased water movement. Deadly on kingfish, Tuna and other mid-water dwelling predators, the Streaker has an erratic action with a strong glide on the initial fall.
The Gypsea is the classic teardrop shape, ideal for almost all jigging styles. From fast and erratic for mid-water dwelling species like Kingfish, to a more slow and methodical slow-pitch style of jigging for bottom species such as Snapper. The wider body profile makes the jig flutter more on the drop and produces a wider thumping action on the lift.
The Buffalo is a slow pitch centre balanced jig featuring 5X BKK hooks on the tail. This style of jig is ideal when used with a long lift of the rod, and then allowed to flutter on the drop. It works perfectly amongst schools of Tuna, or on reef species on a slow fall near the bottom. The centre balanced weight means the jig will flutter as it falls, looking like a wounded fish.
