I have seen guys use an automatic jigging machine to put large spoons(without hooks) on to attract Kokanees at 11 mile. Any directions on how to make one? (these guys used an old winshield wiper motor)
I have been working on a prototype of a machine for over a year now and plan on testing it this weekend while the action is still good for jigging baits. I figure I will try a few Rapala jigs and maybe cast masters / sweedish pimples.
Any recommendations on other baits to try?
I can't wait! It has been a lot of work and hours!
Was it called a Windlass tip-up? That's the easiest sort of jigging machine, but does require a breeze (when is there not one???). I have some thoughts on wind-driven jigging devices, as well as electric jigging machines with built-in wind or solar generators to provide the power. Don't know if any of them will ever get built.
