I didn't give any slack since the wind would blow the line off the trigger mechanism. do you have a way to keep it on? and I'll give the bobber idea a try next time I'm out.

I made a couple of the bobbers pictured here with a large paper clip and a bobber ..works well..pops off usually on the hook set so no obstruction when fighting the fish. EZPZ

Yup, same thing I do

Gamalot:
If you are using medium to large shiners as bait I find a harness works best. Two small treble hooks tied about 2-2.5 inches apart with one in the lip and the other in the tail. Some days the fish are very aggressive and take a full gulp but other days they are just lipping either the heads or tails so a hook on each end seems to work for me. With the Jacker you have to remember it is a quick action hook setter so what you are seeing is the fish taking lip bites and the trigger yanking it away too fast. You might also try setting the rod holder on the lower setting with less bend in your rod.

badger132:
I have seen people using a snowball as a weight to hold some slack in the jaw jacker line. Seemed like it would require a little experimenting to get right, but you would not have to worry about getting rid of it like if you use a slip bobber of something permanent.

Subway4X4:
Jawjacker is my favorite.

I add a bobber between the two rod eyelets and adjust the slack as needed.

I use the Leland trout floats because itís easy to slide the line through the slit in the float ( no paper clip needed) and itís cheap.
