i have been hearing alot about people vertical jigging with 1/2oz or larger jigs even when the water is flat or you're shallow. i have always used as light a jig as possible based on conditions, but lately 'they' have been saying you will catch larger/more fish with the larger jigs. Fishing the canadian side of lake of the woods.
anyone have any experience with this one way or another?

I find that it depends on whether or not they are feeding. Downsizing during a tough bite can be the difference between catching nothing and catching fish.

It really just depends on what the fish want. If they are aggressive they may prefer the faster fall of a heavier jig. Generally when fish are more neutral they'll go for a slow drop from a lighter jig.

I could also see the more aggressive jigging technique inducing a strike more out of instinct then out of hunger.

100% agree with Webdude. If it is an aggressive bite, then go big. If it is a slow bite, downsize and slow the presentation. It's just a given. You'll always be able to get them on the smaller presentations, but when the times allow for big baits...use them!

Catch'em Fast!
