Had three bites and hooked one, thinking about using a bobbed rig with it so I can add a little slack between the bobbed and trip mechanism to maybe let the fish get a better hold on the bait before the nice tripping sound gets ya all excited   ;D

I know this is an old thread but how did this trick work for you? Might try it on the gorge in a couple of weeks. Usually I just use my Jaw jackers as rod holders for the burbs.

I never got around to trying it. Have to mess with how much tension to pot on the trigger but once figured out it should work well

trout hounder:
Just turn the tension on the jacker up and give some slack whacks them everytime

I used a single jaw jacker on Font a week ago. I set the tension just a little bit heavier than I do for trout and nailed one in 70' of water, a foot off the bottom. I will be setting more Jawjackers next time I'm fishing for the ling.

In my set up, I forgot all about my jacker sitting next to me until I heard the snap, reeled in a nice one, we call the cusk here in Maine
