This is a great way to cast a small jig a great distance. The hook of the jig is placed on the metal peg during the cast, and it releases when it hits the water. Because the jig is attached to the float, you can get away using a longer leader - up to 6 or 7 feet. A slow retrieve is all that’s needed, as wave and current action will keep the jig moving. This rig is also be used with small flies, which can be very effective on finnicky fish like bonito and false albacore.
