NWA Democrat-Gazette/FLIP PUTTHOFF
A depth finder is key to catching fish with jigging spoons in summer and fall. The screen here shows schools of threadfin shad as well as game fish at various depths. Once fish are located, lower a jigging spoon over the side of the boat and let it hit bottom. Crank the reel a couple of turns and jig the spoon up and down with the rod tip. Raise it with a quick snap of the rod tip and let it sink on a tight line.
