I am reasonably new to NYBass. I have read many references to jig n pig. Most of them have success associated with them. I must then ask exactly what is it? Is it a tube jug fished in a specific way? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A jig and pig may well be the best all around bait to throw for consistantly bigger fish. It is......
a lead jig head usually 1/4 to 3/4 oz (sorry Earthy) with either a rubber silicone or hair skirt. (Rubber for LMB & Hair for SMB). The pig is typically an Uncle Josh pork rind used as a trailer to the jig. There are many of us out there (not me) who prefer to use a rubber pig instead of the pork. They are usually fished S-L-O-W-L-Y along the bottom. They are very versatile as to the depth and can be fished deep or shallow. They are also an excellent bait to "flip" into heavy cover, lilly pads and weeds as the weight of the jig will get down to where the big-uns hide. I hope this helps you out. You will now get another dozen replies to your question from many of the other learn-ed anglers on this site.:eek:
