Slow pitch jigging is a fishing technique that originated in Japan. It involves using a specialized jigging rod and reel setup to target fish species that inhabit deeper waters. The technique is called "slow pitch" because it emphasizes a slower and more deliberate jigging motion compared to traditional high-speed jigging. The idea is to mimic the movement of injured or dying prey, which can attract predatory fish. Slow pitch jigging typically involves using smaller, heavier jigs and requires a good understanding of the fish's behavior and the underwater environment. It has gained popularity among anglers worldwide for its effectiveness in catching a variety of fish species.
