Default The ol jig and eel?

Whatever happened the "Jig and eel" technique? When I was younger I used to have an old Roland Martin book calk full of info! One thing I found interesting, and had never head of, is the jig and eel technique.

It's essentially the same as a jig n pig, but rather than having a compact crawdad lookin trailer, a longer eel looking trailer is used. Either a big long thing of pork, or a plastic worm, say a jelly worm for example.

Does ANYONE still use or remember this technique?
If you can't fix it with heavy squats or fish oil, you're probably going to die.

I remember that. I havn't used it in years, but I just might try it again. I remember my younger brother taking about 40 bass in one outting once on that rig. He was using a big Manns Jelly Worm.
Just one more cast, and then some!

I remember it, too. Never really fished it but was aware of it.

I remember it too, but can't say I have ever used it. Might need to try it though. That may be something the current crop of bass have never seen before.
