Fishing with the Jackfish the System

Fishing with the Jackfish the System

I cover various aspects, of my Shoot N Scoot style, and also cover Ice Fishing in more detail. It's all about helping you better your confidence and skills, on the water, with a fast system of fishing. Naturally, Jackfish Lures are a big part of this, for me, and my sponsors. This system, will work with many different lures. It's about taking the time to learn your area, the lakes, the fish, and then taking it on the water. Build your library of knowledge, in the sport of fishing, so you can catch more fish when you hit the water. It's a system I run, and it's one you can set up custom for yourself.
