Vertical jigging is one of the best ways to combat tough conditions like cold fronts. That's when you need to entice and tempt 'em with a stealthy, in-your-face vertical presentation!" John Peterson Northland Fishing Tackle Pro Staff
Sweat the Details! Here are some more tips from jigging maestro John Peterson:
When fishing jigs, watch your line. Set the hook immediately if you see it move, or feel a tick or slight resistance. If it's a fish, you'll catch it; if not, you'll likely pull it loose.
The best time to jig is when fish are schooled up in a small pocket or contact area. It requires concentration and a very SLOW presentation.
When fishing in strong wind, river current, or deep water, go to a heavier jig and fish vertically.

Really good jigs. I always have some orange and chartreuse handy. The black dot ( eye ) triggers strikes I believe.
I've caught a nice, 7-8 lb. walleye on the orange color.
Excellent for vertical jigging minnows.
Sometimes it seems the walleye are biting on a particular color. ~ Whatever works good is what I use. Recommended.
