Consideration on the role of squid jig feathers for squid fishing

Consideration on the role of squid jig feathers for squid fishing

Have you have a good fishing life?

Squid fishing in winter has come to full swing in Japan, and I sometimes heard the fishery of big squid these days.

There are many kinds of Egi around the world. Squid jig was invited in Japan. Squid jig has almost always feathers in Japan.


Today, I introduce why does Squid jig has feathers and What will happen if the feathers get out.


The role of egi feathers

Many things are said about the role of feathers on Squid jig.

Some professional eginger say “The feathers are useless,so tearing away!!”,other professional angler say “The feathers are important, So let’s repair!”

Which is right???

 

 

Thank you for watching until the end.

I tried to write an article written in Japanese as English.

I am in poor English, but I would like to translate my Japanese articles into English little by little.

People who can not stand up to update can see other pages in Japanese.

Thank you.

 

It is often said that squid jig has feathers….

  • To balance sinking
  • To resemble shrimp and bait
  • To sink slowly
  • To adjust zigzag movement
  • To position to cling near the hook

and so on.

I would like to verify these one by one.

Incidently,squid jig with no feathers are also sold in Japan.


To balance the squid jig sinking

When one of the feathers was used,squid jig moved zigzag action as usual,but squid jig sink in the water with bad balance.

When I removed remaining feather , squid jig sink in the water with good balance.

Although the feathers are recieved heavy presure,I think that squid jig without both feathers sink in the water slowly.

That’s why, I think that the feathers have the role of to balance ,but the feathergs don’t have the role to slow down the sinking speed.

 

To resemble shrimp and bait

Privatly, I doubt this role.

Because I have caught squid with squid jig without feathers.And when I see staying squid jig ,It looks like just squid jig not a shrimp or a bait.

Squid jig without feathers looks more like a shrimp or a bait.

To stop momentum of  zigzag action

I doubt this role too .

What influences the momentum of zigzag action is the form of body.Especialy, the head of squid jig influence the momentum of zigzag action.

When the squid jig has almost rod-like spindle shape,this bounce quickly to zigzag.

When the squid jig has chubby style,this bounce slowly and finely zigzag action.

 

I think that squid jig feathers don’t infuluence the momentum of  zigzag action.

To position to cling near the hook

I think that squid jig feathers are in order to make the squid cling near the hook.

I don’t know the reason why squid avoids feathers.

The reason why squid avoids feathers may be….

Although squids bite the neck when you are Squid fishing with live bait, squids bite the back half of the squid jig when you are to fish squids.

I guess this is because squids avioid feathers.




Squids bite the neck When you are squid fishing with egi without one feather.


But, the other side, feather is with squid jig. So,  Squids do not bite the neck.


Squid jig with both feathers is bited the back half of the squid jig,as shown in the picture below.


When I checked all my squid jigs,This was the case for most of the bited squid jigs.

Since the only inference, Please check the bited point with your own eyes.

 

Therefore、the squid jig feathers plays a big role to position to squid’s cling near the hook.

The summary of “Consideration on the role of squid jig feathers”

As I wrote above, the squid jig feathers plays a big role to position to squid’s cling near the hook.

If this is true,Whether there arefeathers or not change the likelihood that squids are on the hook when they cling your squid jig.
