    Hi Totos

    Any review on the new Poseidon Longfall Jerker rods?

    I am looking at this model. It works the same as the Slow Jerker PSLJ603-4?

    Thank you.

    Hi Toto,

    I would be jigging at depths of 120 to 170 m?

    What messiah jigs weightage would u recommend for beats propagate long fall power 4 reel?

    • Totos

      Hi Mahdi.
      It depends on the water influence, but probably 200g to 300g Messiah can reach the bottom.

      Long jig like Messiah is basically for high pitch jigging. Especially Messiah is famous for the longest sliding ability to swim on its own, which requires the strong punchy pitch. Long fall jerker it too soft to do that.

      But Messiah is actually used as a slow jig sometimes. Without punchy application or strong setting, simply lift and fall. It falls to slide to the sides. It’s a creative application. So you may want to try that with your rod.

      But If you haven’t tried Gawky and Cranky, they are the first you should try.

    Greetings! I wanted to know whether it is possible to fish jigging or slow pitce in the night or no benefit from this type of fishing And if so, at what depths possible so desirable?

    • Totos

      Hi Elico.
      Slow pitch works at night too, if there’s active fish around. Depth? It works where the fish is!
      Good luck.

        I just wanna add, my fishing trip mostly start from afternoon and end tomorrow noon. It has been proven many many times that slow pitch’s also effective in the night. In fact, my experience, night time is more effective than day time. Target fish : barracuda, spanish mackerel, big eye, etc.

    Hi toto, thank you for this guide that really helpful for us, i notice that you said we can do jigging at night.. my question is is there any spcecific color metal jig that is effective for night jigging ? And also can you give explanation about GID color vs UV bright color, welk im confuse about it

    • Totos

      Hi Indra.
      I don’t know what you mean by GID color. I assume it’s glow color. It’s luminescence. It stocks light and releases light in delay. At night, you need to light the jig for a while before you drop into the water, otherwise it won’t glow.
      UV color is what reflects Ultra Violet light, which penetrates through the water well, and that’s why the water looks blue. So UV color won’t reflect anything at night.

      I don’t think fish who are active at night really don’t rely on color or light. But billions of deepsea creatures are bioluminescence. They use bacteria in their bodies to generate light. And they travel up to the surface every night, and back down at dawn.
      I don’t think night predators rely on colors, but glow colors should look very familiar to them.

    Hi tots how are you doing thanks for the information you deliver to us really appreciate, i was asking about glow color is it really essential to have glow jigs starting from 70 m deep or is it only depends on the tone the jig make

    • Totos

      Hi Amr. I don’t think glow colors are necessary. It’s considered effective. But it hasn’t been proved and cannot be proved because other factors need to be the same, which is impossible. I’m personally very skeptical about jig colors, but I happen to have all my jigs of 180g or more in glow colors.
      I think it’s important for you to try and see.

  8. Amro

    would slow pitch jigging work at night??

    • Totos

      Yes, as long as you have target fish in the night.

  9. SPJ

    Is Marfix S5 reel with its gear ratio 4.4 suitable for slow pitch jigging at 200 meters depth ? I hear good reviews about it but I am concerned with the Low gear ratio.

    • Totos

      Hi SPJ.
      At 200m, you sure need some power. Marfix is a little big in size and a little hard to palm it. That makes it hard to keep the rod under the elbow. I have a N4 but I don’t really like to use this reel for slow pitch actions. It’s a high pitch reel for me.
