Make a resolution. “Lose some weight.” Not on the scale! On your jighead. Using a 1/16-ounce jighead and a much lighter leader is a great option for your dead-of-winter fishing. Going with lighter weight, the finessing of lures to sluggish fish will lead to more strikes without jamming in the weeds as badly. Overall pace of your retrieve: Slower is going to be better. With lighter jigheads, the slower presentation is necessary but it is also going to add flutter movement to your lures, something that should lead to more strikes.
