Hmm.. In my personal experience, shaking the slack is the only way I have gotten them to bite a jig in the winter/cold water in Washington. I don’t shake it hard though, just enough to pulsate the skirt and slowly crawl it along. Not saying it doesn’t work here or anywhere else but small hops on a tight line haven’t produced anything for me in cold water. Great video and tips! The water temps are starting to warm up in Washington with this warm front we’re having. They drop down to 40 or so, maybe even colder in some areas of western Washington. But temps are in the mid 40s now, slowly creeping up to the mid-high 40s. Hopefully this warming trend continues because February has been known to get even colder than December and January here.
