Pete's jigging technique seems almost violent. He casts, waits, and then jerks the rod hard. "When I'm jigging, I toss it out there and let it settle toward the bottom. Then I pop the rod just as if I were setting the hook. Then I let it settle again, reel up the slack, and pop it hard again. The trout are actually hitting the jig as it falls near the bottom. When you pop the rod, there he is. You'll know when you have a hit, no doubt about it."
