Anyone have suggestions on fishing sand grass, I vertical jig but when I drop down I get sand grass on my jig.
Fishing sand grass
I fished a lot of green weeds late in the fall, and what we did was put a slip bobber knot on our lines, and set it once we located deep green weeds, now we had a pretty good idea of how to keep our lures in the zone without dragging up too many weeds
It drives me nuts too. I switched to a dropshot rig also. Bell sinkers get gobs of stuff so I use slinky sinkers or a chain of small split shot for weight. Nothing worse than getting fouled with weeds every time you touch some sandgrass.
Than ease it down so it doesn't plow through, you may feel a little drag of grass but should release just fine. For me it is all what I feel. It should work,these areas of sand grass will vary in size sometime try the very edge instead of the tops.
Use a lighter jig drop it down so it lays on top of weed mat. Now reel down until pole tip touches the water pick up tip it should not be fouled, how far your tip is above the water is how far you are above mat. Now vertical jig all you want.
