Jigging has been around since the year dot. South Pacific islanders have been using turtle and seashell jigs and hooks for centuries and still continue that tradition in some places.
We are a little more sophisticated in this country; or we would like to think we are. In any case, we have at our disposal a wide array of lures and gear to fish with jigs that is either made specifically or adapted for this style of angling.

I entered the Pirtek Challenge 10 April. It has been running for three years now in support of Prostate Cancer Research. The email to see what species were up for the year is usually posted at 6pm the night before, but this year it was 7pm before we could see what they were.
The Challenge will take place on Sunday, 10 April and registration is $20. Every competitor will receive a brag mat and limited edition cap. Once again 100% of the entry fee will go directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Suzuki today announced the launch of two new fuel-efficient and high performance four stroke outboard motors – the new generation DF40A and DF50A.
Bar Crusher Boats recently teamed up with Navico Australia’s Dave Silva to develop the first 560XS Tournament model.
Designed around Dave’s passion for tournament barra fishing in the Top End, this custom model has taken Bar Crusher’s popular ‘crossover’ concept to another level.
Built on the heavy-duty plate aluminium 6.10m (LOA) 560 hull, Bar Crusher’s high-tech Waveslicer™ non-pounding, deep-V hull design is perfect for handling the often messy conditions, created through large tidal movement and wind, encountered along the Top End’s river systems and open coastline. The boat’s expertly-engineered Rigideck™ sub-floor system ensures maximum hull strength, while Bar Crusher's exclusive Quickflow™ water ballast technology turns the boat into an amazingly stable casting platform at rest.
